Разработка ролевой игры длястаршеклассников:
The class is divided into two groups –teenagers and psychologists, who sit in two lines facing each other. Teenagersare given role cards where their problems are described. They needpsychological help. So one by one each teenager should dial the number of the«Help-line» (you can bring a couple of telephones in class) and explain his orher problem to a psychologist sitting in front. The psychologist’s task is todiscuss the problem with the teenager and give some advice. If the teenager isnot satisfied with it, he/she can try again and talk to another psychologist.To make it more interesting a teacher or one of the pupils can role a play atelephone operator who will connect teenagers with psychologists.(Psychologists can place cards with the number of their line in front of them).

3. I’m 16 and I’ve made a veryimportant discovery: love, or rather, eternal love does not exist! It can’t bethe same, say, now and 10 years later. It turns into a habit or pretence. Ifso, why should people marry and deceive each other? I’ve resolved not to. Ihate pretence. My Mom doesn’t understand. She says she loves Dad but I see themquarrel every now and then about trifles!
Is it love?

But lastmonth my test results became worse. I tried hard to improve the situation, butthe results of the last test were even worse. I’m worried. I can’t understandwhat is going on. I don’t know what to do.
