11 Class.Electiоns IN UKRAINE

 Gооd mоrning, pupils!

Tоday 's pic is:

"Electiоns IN UKRAINE"

1. Be ready  answer the questiоns belоw.

1) What is the minimum voting age in your country?

2) Who represents you in your local and national government?

3) How long is the term of elected officials in your country?

4) Which party is now in power in your country?

5) When were they elected?

6) Who is the leader of this party?

7) Is voting an important responsibility of a citizen?

8) Why do you think voting is important?

2.Read the dialogue and try tо make up one of your own.

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

Alex. This election is going to be close!

Helen. I think you’re right. The Republicans and the Democrats are fighting for every vote.

Alex. Did you watch the conventions?

Helen. Yes, I watched a little bit. The party platforms are extremely different.

Alex. Yes, they are! Watching them on TV, it was hard to believe they come from the same country!

Helen. Oh, it wasn’t that bad.

Alex. Hmmm, anyway the delegates certainly clapped hard for their nominees.

Helen. But it was the same stump speech over and over again. In both parties!

Alex. That’s what politicians do best. Talk... the problem is whether they actually do very much.

Helen. Oh, you’re a pessimist!

Alex. I wouldn’t say that. It’s just that I’m sick and tired of all the attack ads.

Helen. I see your point. It would be nice to know what they want to govern the country, rather than why they think the other guy isn’t any good.

Alex. They treat us like idiots! I hate sound bites. Short simple statements that don’t really give me much information. Treat me like I have a brain.

Helen. Some say we get what we deserve. Voter turnout is so low, perhaps we don’t deserve any better.

Alex. But that’s why people don’t come out to vote. They don’t feel represented even if they do vote.

Helen. I think we need a third party in this country.

Alex. I couldn’t agree with you more!

Helen. Perhaps a third party would stop the partisanship.

Alex. Another thing that I don’t think is fair is the electoral system.

Helen. No kidding! Just think, a state like California has 54 electoral votes. One vote majority in the popular vote and ALL of those 54 votes go to ONE candidate!

Alex. It just isn’t fair.

Helen. Of course, there are reasons for that.

Alex. Hmmm. I guess...

Helen. Are you a registered voter?

Alex. Of course! I’m a registered voter and I go to the voting booth to vote. I want that vote to represent my voice.

Helen. OK, OK, no need to give a speech.

Alex. Ha ha, I just think it’s my duty as a citizen to vote.

Helen. Yes, I agree with you. If you can vote, vote!

 Gооd mоrning, pupils!

Tоday 's pic is:

                                  "International organizations:UNICEF."

1.Watch the videо abоuUNICEF.

2.Read the text where yоu can get new information abоuUNICEF.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF /ˈjuːnɪsɛf/) is a United Nations (UN) program headquartered in New York City that provides humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. It is a member of the United Nations Development Group.

The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund was created by the United Nations General Assembly on 11 December 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II. The Polish physician Ludwik Rajchman is widely regarded as the founder of UNICEF and served as its first chairman from 1946. On Rajchman's suggestion, the American Maurice Pate was appointed its first executive director, serving from 1947 until his death in 1965. In 1950, UNICEF's mandate was extended to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries everywhere. In 1953 it became a permanent part of the United Nations System, and the words "international" and "emergency" were dropped from the organization's name, making it simply the United Nations Children's Fund, retaining the original acronym, "UNICEF".

UNICEF relies on contributions from governments and private donors. UNICEF's total income for 2015 was US$5,009,557,471. Governments contribute two-thirds of the organization's resources. Private groups and individuals contribute the rest through national committees. It is estimated that 92 per cent of UNICEF revenue is distributed to program services. UNICEF's programs emphasize developing community-level services to promote the health and well-being of children. UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965 and the Prince of Asturias Award of Concord in 2006.

Most of UNICEF's work is in the field, with a presence in 190 countries and territories. UNICEF's network of over 150 country offices, headquarters and other offices, and 34 National Committees carry out UNICEF's mission through programs developed with host governments. Seven regional offices provide technical assistance to country offices as needed.

UNICEF's Supply Division is based in Copenhagen and serves as the primary point of distribution for such essential items as vaccines, antiretroviral medicines for children and mothers with HIV, nutritional supplements, emergency shelters, family reunification, and educational supplies. A 36-member executive board establishes policies, approves programs and oversees administrative and financial plans. The executive board is made up of government representatives who are elected by theUnited Nations Economic and Social Council, usually for three-year terms.

 

3.Sum up the item and answer for the questions оrally.

When was it created?  

Who was the founder of  the organization? 

How does the organization work?
