Welcoming (introducing oneself). Writing the topic on the board. The task is part of the introduction to the subject of the lesson:
What film genres do you know? (action, animated, documentary, fantasy, horror, western, thriller, historical, catastrophic, comedy, crime, adventure, feature, nature documentary, psychological). The teacher writes the students’ suggestions on the board.
The main part: listening to soundtracks (comedy, animated, nature documentary, western, horror films). Task for students: Listen carefully to the soundtracks and think about the genres of the film in which they might be used. Examples of film genres are on the blackboard. Assign each soundtrack to a proper movie genre. Please raise your hands to provide your suggested answers.
Loud reading of M. Wojtyszko’s: “Secret of the Marabou’s Cipher” book by the children. How are movies made? Where is their source? Where does the idea for a film come from? Do you know? (from the books). Yes, so now we’ll read a fragment of Maciej Wojtyszko’s text entitled: “Mystery of the Marabou’s Cipher” (children read the text fragments).
After reading: the “Secret of the Marabou’s Cipher” is also an animated film that you can find using the Internet. Text Analysis (Work Card No. 1 – Attachment No. 1). Students do the task independently, and then they present the results of their work in front of the class. The teacher together with the students check the correctness of the answers. The teacher asks children: What kind of novel is it? (a crime story). What is the nature of the crime story? (solving a mystery, who discovers this secret? – a detective). We will be detectives, too.
Teacher presents the mystery box. The task of the children is to determine what is inside on the basis of hints provided when solving puzzles (Attachment 2). The puzzles are introduced every 5 minutes (during the whole lesson) and signaled by the bell.
Matching the logo to the contents of the “The mystery of the Marabou’s Cipher” text – a written work. Do you know what a logo is? And what is the purpose of it? Give some examples of logos that you know. Look again at the title of the text. You have pictures in front of you (attached to the board). Choose one that is, in your opinion, the most suitable for the function of a logo (symbol) of this text. Justify your choice in writing (4 – 6 sentences). The selected works will be read aloud in a moment. On the board we stick pictures: a chest, glasses, a hat, a coat, a magnifying glass (Attachment no. 3).
Creating your own ending of the text. Recall once again how the story ended (one child speaks). In a moment, each pair (children sitting together) will draw a note with some information. Your task will be to make your own ending (up to six sentences), using this information. You can only discuss in pairs. You have 5 minutes to do this. Agree on which of you will present the results of the work. Write ideas in your notebooks. We will read them in the class shortly.
Summary: Discovering the secret hidden in the box. Students answer the question: What is the key to?
Checking: Based on today’s lesson, answer the question: Who is a detective? Listen to the answers of your friends and give new information, so as not to repeat what has already been said.
