ВВЕДЕНИЕ
В соответствии с новой образовательной парадигмой, в основе которой
лежит компетентностный подход, иноязычное обучение в системе высшего
образования приобретает большую значимость. Компетентностный подход
понимается как формирование умений и навыков направленных на применение на практике коммуникативных способностей человека, его культурных,
социальных, и информационных и профессиональных компетенций. Компетентностный подход осуществляется на основе таких методов, которые организуют обучение через желание, активизируют обучение учащихся, стимулируют их к познанию, мотивируют интерес к самостоятельному приобретению знаний.
Основной образовательной целью дисциплины «Иностранный язык»
в условиях вуза является формирование у обучающихся способности практического владения иностранным языком, позволяющей использовать его
в будущей профессиональной деятельности. Показателем уровня сформированности такой способности является профессионально ориентированная
вторичная языковая личность.
В соответствии с ФГОС третьего поколения, приоритетом сегодняшнего дня в преподавании иностранных языков является ориентация на
формирование общекультурной компетенции. В связи с этим для достижения
основной образовательной цели дисциплины «Иностранный язык» предъявляются серьезные требования к содержанию и формам организации учебного
процесса. Реализация учебной цели в соответствии с новыми ФГОС в условиях неязыкового вуза возможна только с учетом комплексности обозначенных компетенций, а при обучении иностранному языку это, в основном,
общекультурные компетенции (ОК):
 способность свободно пользоваться русским и иностранным языками
как средством делового общения;
 знание иностранного языка,
 владение одним из иностранных языков на уровне не ниже
разговорного,
 способность осуществлять коммуникации в профессиональной среде
и в обществе в целом, в том числе на иностранном языке.
Требования к сформированности общекультурных компетенций при
обучении иностранному языку представлены комплексом умений в различных видах речевой деятельности: говорение, письмо, чтение, понимание на
слух (аудирование). В результате освоения дисциплины обучающийся должен
3
Copyright ОАО «ЦКБ «БИБКОМ» & ООО «Aгентство Kнига-Cервис»
демонстрировать свои знания в цикле «знать, уметь, владеть», обозначенные
в рабочей учебной программе (или учебно-методическом комплексе
дисциплины) по всем направлениям подготовки вуза.
Качество полученных знаний иностранного языка проявляется в готовности обучающихся применять его не только в повседневном общении,
но и, в профессиональном общении, для формирования межкультурных
связей, представления своей страны на международных конференциях,
симпозиумах, международных научных и деловых профессиональных
мероприятиях, а также в ситуациях профессиональной коммуникации и
профессионального обмена опытом.
Компетентностный подход усиливает качество знаний иностранного
языка, подчеркивает роль опыта, умений реализовать свои знания на
практике.
В связи с таким усилением практико-ориентированного образования и
его предметно-профессионального аспекта, преподаватели кафедры иностранного языка применяют новые подходы, формы, методы и технологии
обучения иностранным языкам. Их разработка в значительной степени
активизирует интерактивную форму обучения как один из эффективных
методов, способствующих формированию умений и навыков разговорной
речи, а также освоению лексического и грамматического материала.
Интерактивная деятельность занимает особое место в освоении курсов
по иностранному языку в КемГУКИ. Интерактивная деятельность предполагает организацию и развитие диалогового общения. В ходе диалогового
обучения обучающиеся учатся решать сложные проблемы на основе анализа
обстоятельств и соответствующей информации, взвешивать альтернативные
мнения, принимать продуманные решения, участвовать в дискуссиях,
общаться с представителями профессионального сообщества других культур.
Учебный процесс, опирающийся на использование интерактивных методов
обучения, организуется так, чтобы включить в процесс познания всех
обучающихся группы. Совместная деятельность означает, что каждый вносит
свой особый, индивидуальный вклад, в ходе работы идет обмен знаниями,
идеями, способами деятельности. Для этого на практических занятиях
организуется индивидуальная, парная и групповая работа, применяются
исследовательские проекты, ролевые и деловые игры, идет работа с документами и различными источниками информации, используются творческие
и проектные работы.

МЕТОДИЧЕСКИЕ РЕКОМЕНДАЦИИ ДЛЯ ПРЕПОДАВАТЕЛЕЙ
ПО ИСПОЛЬЗОВАНИЮ ИНТЕРАКТИВНЫХ ЗАДАНИЙ
Данный сборник состоит из четырех разделов, в которых представлены
различные виды интерактивных заданий нескольких уровней сложности –
от Elementary до Upper-Intermediate.
Сборник предназначен как для самостоятельного изучения студентами
английского языка, так и для использования преподавателем во время
практических занятий в качестве дополнения к основному курсу. Задания
данного сборника направлены на формирование навыков во всех видах
речевой деятельности и отражают различные типы коммуникативных
ситуаций, и бытовых, и профессиональных. Большинство заданий обладают
достаточной гибкостью подхода, позволяющей встраивать их в различные
этапы занятия и применять в группах с различным уровнем языковой
подготовки.
Каждое задание (в некоторых случаях вид заданий) состоит из его
описания, включающего формулировку цели, указания времени, которое
необходимо для выполнения задания, и описания пошаговой стратегии и
особенностей его выполнения, а также, в большинстве случаев, непосредственно самого задания. Некоторые задания требуют предварительной
подготовки, о чем можно прочитать в инструкции к нему. Каждое задание
сопровождается практическим материалом (рабочими листами), которые
предназначены для аудиторной работы студентов. Таким образом, даже
человек, не обладающий опытом педагогической деятельности, сможет легко
их использовать и, кроме того, опытные преподаватели также сэкономят
время на подготовку к занятиям.
Интерактивные задания служат важным средством активизации процесса изучения иностранного языка в условиях отсутствия языковой среды,
однако не рекомендуется вводить более одного задания в течение одного
практического занятия, так как это усложняет восприятие студентами
изучаемой темы.

make requests and offer help.
- Write on the board or prepare on an OHP the following phrases:
Can I speak to Jenny?
Shall I take the call?
Could you repeat the number, please?
Would you mind hanging on a moment?'
Is it okay if I call you back later?
Would you like me to come straight away?
- Ask them to copy sentences into their notebooks and then write offer or request
next to each sentence.
- Elicit ways of starting a phone conversation, and write them on the board, e.g.:
Hello, is John in?; It's John speaking, or Can I speak to Alison?

THEN OR NOW?
Aim: To practise used to + infinitive for past habits and states.
Timing: 30–40 minutes.
Procedure:
- Make one copy of the worksheet for each student.
- Arouse students' interest by showing them old photographs/a short film clip that
depicts life 100 years ago. If you don't have access to such things, then ask students
to talk about the lives of their grandparents and how they were different from life
now.
- Write up the first statement on the board with the I agree / I'm not sure / I disagree
boxes. Invite the students to agree or disagree with the statement and encourage
them to give reasons for their choice.
- Hand out the worksheets and tell the students to do the same with the statements.
Allow 5–10 minutes for this stage and make sure the students are working alone.
Monitor and help with any difficulties.
- Divide the class into pairs or groups as you require. Groups will probably lead to
more disagreement and ultimately a more productive discussion.
- Once students have discussed all the statements, conduct a class feedback session
focusing on those that proved to be most contentious and any that the students
created for themselves that proved interesting.
Note: The ideas generated could form the basis of a discursive essay on the
advantages and disadvantages of living now as opposed to 70–100 years ago.

BLOCKBUSTER
Aim: To practise writing the outline of a narrative.
Timing: 45–60 minutes.
Procedure:
- If you have a TV and video, play the first 3 minutes of a well-known film for the
students. Otherwise, write the title of a film on the board (e.g. 'Star Wars'). Ask
them what type of film it is (e.g. 'science fiction'),
- Brainstorm different categories/genres of film and write them on the board, e.g.
romance, adventure, drama, comedy, musical, western, thriller, horror, action,
science fiction, animation, documentary. Elicit films the students have seen in each
of the categories.
- Divide the students into groups of three or four.
- Tell them they are going to write an outline for a film. The group with the best
outline will get (a notional) $100 million to make their movie.
- Give each group a copy of the worksheet. Ask them to choose at least three items
from each column.
- The groups build up the details of a plot, using their chosen location, characters,
props and events. Set a time limit.
- Circulate and help them with vocabulary and ideas as necessary.
- Each group also thinks of three possible titles for their movie and chooses the
actors and actresses to appear in their film.
- Each group, in turn, presents its outline to the rest of the class.
- The class then decides which of the three titles is the best for the movie that has
been described.
- After the presentations, the class votes for the best idea (they can't vote for their
own) and a winner is declared.
Notes & comments:
As an alternative for larger classes: each group invents one title for their movie and
gives it to the teacher, who writes up all the titles on the board. The class listens to
the presentations and guesses which title was written for each film outline.

MAKING NEWS
Aim: To practise forms of past tense verbs (both regular and irregular).
Timing: 30–40 minutes.
Procedure:
- Divide the class into groups of four or six. Ask the students in each group to sit in
a circle and number themselves 1–4 or 1–6, anti-clockwise.
- Ask the students to imagine that this morning they heard a surprising piece of
news on their local radio station and that they are going to tell a friend about it.
- Give one set of pictures from the worksheet to each group. Ask students number
1 to shuffle the pictures well and deal out four to six pictures face down to every
student in the group.
- Tell the students that they have five to ten minutes to make up a newsworthy story
which includes at least three of their pictures. Explain that the story should take one
minute to tell. Ask the students to write short notes about the story. Encourage them
to be imaginative.
- Circulate, helping with vocabulary and grammar problems.
- When the students are ready, tell them that the activity is in two rounds and that
they only need half of their story for the first round.
First round
- Ask students 1, 3 and 5 to tell their story to the student on their left, beginning
with “This morning I heard on the news that ...” Tell the students that the tellinglistening periods will be exactly one minute and that you will be giving the “go”
and “stop” commands.
- Ask students 2, 4 and 6 to pass the story they have just heard on to the student on
their left, again beginning with “This morning I heard on the news that ...”
- Ask the students to make the stories 'travel' anti-clockwise. Repeat this until the
stories have been told to the original storyteller.
- The original storytellers explain to the whole group what in the story is correct
and what has been omitted or changed by showing the pictures they used.
Second round
- Repeat stages 7–10, working with the other half of the stories. Ask students 2, 4
and 6 to start.

INTERPRETER
Aim: To practise reported speech.
Timing: 30 minutes.
Procedure:
- Introduce the activity by telling or asking the students what it feels like to be in a
foreign country where you don't speak the language. Elicit some of the most
embarrassing or difficult situations for the traveller.
- Ask students to form groups of three. In each group there are three roles:
• police officer
• foreigner
• interpreter
If there are four students in a group, double up the role of foreigner.
- Explain that in each group the foreigner(s) takes a role card at random from the
pile. The card describes a situation. They will have to explain it to the police
officer, who does not speak English, via the interpreter.
- If necessary, demonstrate one of the situations with two students.
- Make sure that they take turns to change roles for the subsequent cards so that
everyone gets the chance to be the police officer, the foreigner and the interpreter.
Follow up:
Allow some time at the end of the group work to role play some of the situations in
front of the whole class - those that have worked best with the smaller groups.
(Make notes as you monitor group work on particularly productive and generative
situations and groups for a final demonstration.)

EDUCATIONAL LANGUAGE GAMES
A FEW QUICK QUESTIONS
Aim: To consolidate asking questions.
Timing: 30–40 minutes.
Procedure:
- Make one copy of the worksheet per student.
- Fold the worksheet so only the left column is visible. Give one worksheet to each
student.
- Ask the students to write a different classmate's name on each line in the left
column. Alternatively, the worksheet is passed around the class and the students
write their own names on the lines. (The latter ensures all students' names appear
equally as often)
- The worksheet is unfolded to reveal incomplete statements about the students'
classmates. For example,
Thierry feels ________ today.
Emily is named after _________ .
- The students mingle around the classroom, asking and answering questions and
completing the statements. For example, Thierry feels worried about his exam
today. Emily is named after her grandmother.
- Encourage the students to ask further questions to find out more information.
- When all the sentences have been completed, the students, in pairs or small
groups, tell each other what they have learned. Ask the students to report to the
class anything interesting they have learned.

LETS TALK!
Aim: Тo practise using gerund- and infinitives after particular verbs.
Timing: 30–45 minutes.
Procedure:
- Write two examples on the board – one which requires the gerund and one which
requires the infinitive.
Do you like (go) to the theatre? (going)
Have you decided (go) out tonight? (to go)
- Elicit the correct form for each sentence.
- Divide the class into groups of three.
- Explain the rules of the game:
Students throw the dice and move around the board.
If they land on a question, the student must form the question correctly using the
gerund or infinitive form. The student then asks this question to another member of
the group who must give an appropriate answer.
If the student lands on a one word prompt, e.g.: DECIDE, then another member of
the group must form a question for the person who landed on that square. The
question must use the key word in an appropriate tense and with the correct verb
pattern e.g.: When did you decide to come to England?
The students proceed until someone has finished. If time and inclination allow, they
can start again in new groups.

LET’S TALK
Aim: To practice different verb patterns and vocabulary related to describing
appearance.
Timing: 30–40 minutes.
Procedure:
- Put your students into groups of three (two players and one referee) or rive (two
pairs and one referee) and give each group a copy of the worksheet, two counters
and a dice. You will need let give the referee a copy of the answers.
- The students place their counter on the START square and then roll the dice to see
who goes first.
- The students take it turns to roll the dice, move that number of squares forward
and then choose the correct alternative. The referee checks the answers, if correct,
the student's counter remains on the square. If incorrect, the student has to return
his/her counter to its original square.
- If the player lands on a SMILE! They should square; move forward but not have
to answer the question, if a player lands on an OOPS!: square, they automatically
miss a go.
- This continues until a player pair reaches the final SMILE! square and wins the
game.

IRREGULAR BATTLESHIR
Aim: To practice spelling of irregular verbs forms.
Timing: 30–40 minutes.
Procedure:
- Ask if any of the students have played the game “Battleships”. If anyone has, ask
them to explain it to the rest of the class.
- Ask the students to form pairs of Student A and Student B.
- Give each student a copy of the relevant worksheet.
- Tell the students that the object of the game is to find ten irregular verbs in the
past tense and past participle in their partner's grid.
- Ask the students to read the instructions on their worksheets carefully. You may
want to pre-teach some of the key lexis: a grid, to score a hit, to miss, your turn,
your go.
- Circulate, checking that students spell the verbs correctly.
Answers:
The verbs on Worksheet A are: grew, stolen, won, led, put, heard, gone, ate,
thrown, drove. The verbs on Worksheet B are: sung, drunk, made, built, sat, hurt,
woke, swam, cut, taught.
Follow up:

Ask the students to make a list with the infinitive, past tense and past participle
forms of the twenty verbs that they have found.
•
Use the blank grids below to play the game again: students can write in their
own verbs. The grids can also be used for other lexical fields.
Notes & comments:
For lower level classes, if you think it will take too long for the students to find out
the verbs, write the twenty verbs on the blackboard before starting the game.

everyone keeps ignoring me. – Next please”, to exemplify the kind of humour they
can expect.
- Give out the cards – one or more to each student, depending on class size. Allow a
few minutes for students to check any vocabulary they don't know, either with you
or in a dictionary.
- Ask the students to walk around the classroom reading out their incomplete jokes
to each other and deciding whether their halves match.
- Ask the students to check with you when they think they have found their 'other
half.

words benefit and qualification on the board.
- Write the key vocabulary items on the board: promotion, work experience,
medical insurance, vacation, bachelor/masters/doctor, degree, references,
salary wage housing, license, commissions, tips bonus, well-spoken, hardworking,
discounts, training courses, dental insurance, creativity, report card/transcript, raise,
neat appearance/dress.
- Give the students some examples of the key languages patterns: What kind of
experience do you have? What did you study in university? Do you have any
special skills? What are your good points and bad points? What company do you
represent? What kind of job do you offer?
- Make a chart with the headings benefits and qualifications on the board and ask
the students to come up with some examples. Write the examples under the
appropriate headings.
- Now hand out the worksheet titled Benefits and Qualifications. Go over it as a
class. In groups decide what the most important benefits and qualifications are. Ask
a few students what benefits they want. Then ask a few students what qualifications
they have.
- Ask the students to practice doing job interviews in English.
- Let the companies line up in row. And tell the job seekers go from company to
company and ask about the jobs. Explain to the students that the job seekers are
primarily interested in what benefits they can get, and the companies are primarily
interested in the qualifications of potential employees.
- Before you let the students go at it, you should probably model an example
interview with one student. You may also want to discuss the questions that each
party will want to ask.
- Ask both groups should fill out the table on their activity worksheets. And when
they are done and if time permits, you can ask the employers who they would like
to hire and why.

BANKING ROLE-PLAY
Aim: to practice talking about banks and participating banking conversation.
Timing: 60 minutes.
Procedure:
- Write the key vocabulary items and grammar patterns on the board: deposit
money, withdraw money, cash checks, exchange currency, and pay bills (if needed
give some more).
- Use Personal Finance Vocabulary Sheets for Warming-up before the game.
- Print out photocopy of five documents: Vocabulary Handouts, Client Role Cards,
Financial Product Brochures, Banker Activity Sheet, and Client Activity Sheet.
- Divide the class into two groups: bankers and bank clients.
- Give each client a client role-play card. The bankers should be divided into four
groups: new accounts, credit cards, mortgages, and loans. Each banker should be
given a financial product brochure for the group that they belong to. Students
should be given time to absorb the material. They can quietly read the material in
front of them and ask questions if they do not understand something.
- Give the bankers a banker activity sheet and give the clients a client activity sheet.
Bankers should set up desks where they can meet with their clients. Using the
conversation as a guide, bankers and clients begin the role-play.
- Ask the bank clients to visit the bank and talk to the bankers about various
financial products such as credit cards and mortgages. After the bankers explain the
financial products, the client should select one product and apply. The bankers
should then open up a bank profile and start a credit evaluation.
- Ask the Bankers now set up a bank profile and do a credit evaluation. This
involves asking questions about income and debt. The questions are on the banker
activity sheet and the answers to the questions are on the client role-play cards.
- After finishing the tasks, ask the participants of the game to discuss briefly which
financial products were more appealing and why. With the bankers you can discuss
who they felt had a good credit evaluation and why, and whom would they lend
money to. Give some hints to the students: The doctor has a good salary but also a
lot debt. The waitress has a modest salary but almost no debt.

- After they finish a conversation the callers should get up to call another friend on
the list.
- After the callers have called all of their friends, they should go back home and
ask if there were any messages.

AMERICAN CLASSROOM CUSTOMS QUIZ

If the teacher asks a question, you are expected to give an answer. If you do
not understand the question, you should raise your hand and ask the teacher
to repeat the question. If you do not know the answer, it is all right to tell the
teacher that you do not know. Then he or she knows what you need to learn.
There is no excuse for not doing your homework. If you are absent, you
should call your teacher or someone who is in your class and ask for the
assignment. It is your responsibility to find out what assignments you have
missed. It is not the teacher's responsibility to remind you of missed
assignments.
You must not be absent on a test day. If you are seriously ill, call and let the
teacher know you will not be there for the test. If your teacher allows makeup tests, you should take the test within one or two days after returning to
class. Serious illness is the only reason for missing a test.
Be on time! It is considered rude to be late. Also, it bothers other students. If
you must come in late, be sure to do it quietly. Have your books and papers
out of your bag before you come into the room. Then go to your seat and sit
quietly. In the US it is not necessary to knock before you enter the
classroom. Most of the ELC teachers will give you a low grade if you are
often late.
Have your book out and be ready to begin when the class starts. Your
teacher should not have to ask you every day to take out your book. Be sure
you have a paper and a sharp pencil ready.
In America, you should call your teacher by his or her last name, not
"teacher". Also you should use Mr., Miss, Ms. or Mrs. before the last name
(such as Mrs. Smith or Mr. Jones). This is considered polite. The teacher
will tell you his or her preferred title.
Be courteous to other students. If another student is answering a question,
giving a report or an explanation, you should listen quietly and give them
your attention. Everyone must be treated with the same respect you would
like them to give to you. Also, the question they are asking may be
something you need to know.
It is considered impolite in the U.S. to eat, drink or chew gum during class.
This is reserved for the break. Also, removing one's shoes in the classroom is
not polite.

If you must leave during class, do so quietly. There is no need to ask the
teacher's permission. However, leaving the class for something other than an

solving, friendliness, intelligence, leadership, enthusiasm, and a good sense of humor.
Most employers want people who are dependable and who get along with others.
Though skills are important, an employer will select new employees based on their
personal qualities as well.

JOB SKILLS
Skills are the activities that a person does well. What things are you good at doing?
Everyone has many skills. Sometimes it is difficult to recognize the skills that you
have.
Job skills are abilities you need for a specific job. For example, a chef needs to know
how to cook and bake. A taxi driver needs to know how to drive a car and read
signs.A secretary needs to know how to type and take messages.
Transferable skills are skills you can use in many different jobs. You can take skills
from one job and use them in a very different job. Speaking English well, for instance,
is a skill you can use in almost any job. Some examples of transferable skills are
teaching other people, solving problems, accepting responsibility, organizing projects,
making decisions, and creating new ideas. Employers want to select employees who
have or who can learn the skills necessary to do the job. This quiz is part of
the HTML-Only Self-Study Quizzes which is part of Activities for ESL Students,
a project by The Internet TESL Journal.

WANT ADS
Want ads are messages in the newspaper where you can find out about many different
things. They are also known as the classified advertising section and you can find out
about job openings there. The "Help Wanted" section is a part of the newspaper with
want ads placed by people who have jobs to fill. After you find the "Help Wanted" or
"Employment" section, you will see other titles under these general titles. They are
called subheadings. For example, you can look under the subheading "Office" or
"Clerical" if you have special skills as a secretary or typist. The jobs are listed in
alphabetical order under the subheadings.
You can read the want ads to learn general information about available jobs or to learn
specific information about a particular job that interests you. Reading the want ads
will help you better understand the jobs that are available. However, only a small
group of people get jobs through the want ads. Often the jobs offered are entry level
jobs or beginning jobs. If you have little experience as a worker, want ads may help
you find the job you looking for.

neighbors, people you worked with in your last job, classmates, and other people you
know can help you find a job. Ask them to help you. This is called networking. You
can begin networking with anyone who knows people and is willing to talk to you.
The people you are then referred to are likely to know even more about the job you
want. Each referral will try to be helpful and refer you to someone who knows even
more than they do.
You need to convince the people you see that you have the skills to do a good job.

for that job.

A completed job application is a statement about your personal, educational, and work
experience. It is also a statement about some of your other very important
characteristics as a person and as a prospective employee. It is very important that you
take the time to make every job application that you fill out a very positive statement
about you as a person and as a future employee. You need to be thorough in your

RESUME
A resume is an individualized, written summary of your personal, educational and
experience qualifications. It is designed to present you as a prospective employee. Not
everyone needs a resume. However, if you are looking for a professional, technical,
administrative, or managerial job, you will need a resume. Applications for many
clerical and sales positions also require a resume.
A resume is like a written sales presentation. It alone will not get you a job. However,
an effective resume creates a favorable impression of you while presenting your
abilities and experience. Your resume can be used as a response to an ad. It can also be
used as a letter of introduction for an interview. It is a fact sheet that tells a prospective
employer that you are a desirable prospective employee.

This is called "walking in." Sometimes companies have job openings, but they don't
put up signs. You can walk into these companies and ask about jobs. When you walk
into a company, the first person you talk to is usually the receptionist or another
employee. Later, you can sometimes talk to the manager.

INTERVIEW
An interview is a meeting between an employer and an applicant to talk about a job.
A job interview is your opportunity to present your skills to an employer in person.
During the interview, an employer judges your qualifications, appearance, and general
fitness for the job opening. The interview is your opportunity to convince the
employer that you are right for the job.
The interview also gives you a chance to evaluate the job, the employer, and the
company. The interview helps you decide if the job meets your career needs and
interests.
It is very important to prepare for a job interview. If you prepare well, the interviewer
will know that you are organized and that you are really interested in the job. If you
learn as much as you can about the job and the company before the interview, and if
you are careful about your appearance, then you will make a good impression. If you
practice the interview questions that managers usually ask, then you will feel confident
when you speak.

EASTER
Read the following story and answer the questions that follow.
Easter is celebrated every spring. It is always celebrated on a Sunday. Easter has its
roots in many traditions gathered from many parts of the globe.
There are many symbols of Easter. German settlers to Pennsylvania brought with
them the story of the Easter Bunny. Children believed that if they were good, the
Easter Bunny would lay a nest of colored eggs. Because rabbits are known for
producing a lot of young, especially in the springtime, they symbolize new life. As
the Easter Bunny custom spread across the country, it led to other traditions such as
Easter baskets and gift giving.
Birds lay a great number of colorful eggs in the spring which has brought about the
use of Easter eggs, egg dyeing and egg hunts. Long ago, the egg was honored
during many springtime festivals. Egg dyeing was popular in ancient times and
continues to be popular today. To the Christian, the egg represents the rebirth of the
earth and of man.
Ham is the traditional food of Easter. This type of pork is popular throughout the
world. In many cultures, the pig is a symbol of prosperity.
As you have learned, Easter in America is a mixture of a lot of cultures, stories, and
Christian beliefs. However, the reason for the celebration remains the same – to call
to mind our crucified Jesus who rose from the dead to save us.

deep lake, for instance). Joseph Ceravolo was an American poet who often mixed
similar and opposite ideas in his verse. In the following two poems Ceravolo
suggests that natural objects that we often take for granted can be viewed as
extraordinary, even unnatural. Ceravolo looks at trees and finds they contain wild
feelings.
PART TWO: The Poems
When the First Tree Blossoms
Snow fall like April:
the icicles stick. Like April
the birds float.
It is white foam.
Like April when the first tree blossoms
and you do not know it.
Happiness in the Trees
O height dispersed and head
in sometimes joining
these sleeps. O primitive touch
between fingers and dawn
on the back
You are no more
simple than a cedar tree
whose children change
the interesting earth
and promise to shake her
before the wind blows
away from you
in the velocity of rest
