Class hour September 1, 2019-2020 academic year
In order for the classroom hour on September 1, 2019-2020 academic year to be as successful and effective as possible, educators should already think about the format of the meeting and the main topic of the lesson. Why is this so important? Everything is simple - because it is from this day that the mood of students and their focus on learning depends on a lot.
Theme class "Class hour" on September 1 - what is it?
The classroom hour spent on the day of knowledge is a special lesson that has not been held in a standard teaching format for a long time. On this day, the school team reunites and the children return to their educational path after the summer holidays. On September 1, a class hour is traditionally held, carrying with it an educational function.
Every year, the Ministry of Education establishes common classroom topics for knowledge day. As a rule, they are associated with global problems that concern not only Russia, but also other countries. The established theme should be followed by all schools. But this year the situation will change a bit, which will be discussed in more detail a little further.
Historical background on introductory lessons
For the first time, the official holiday of September 1 was introduced back in Soviet times - in 1984. Since then, this day is considered not to be a training day, and the only lesson held is aimed only at introducing the teacher to the students and establishing contact in the team. This format of the lesson was called "Classroom Hour" or "Lesson of the World" (in modern Russia) and became a kind of foundation in order to:
- To unite the school team;
- To instill in students a sense of morality and responsibility;
- To develop in children special feelings towards family and relatives.
The tradition unites students of all educational institutions. The event is held regularly. It is customary to discuss the importance of personality, family, homeland and study.
Key objectives of the lesson and the main tasks of the teacher
The key goals that a teacher should achieve during the lesson include:
- Mentoring children to the educational wave;
- Association of classmates;
- Finding a common language with students;
- Inoculation and development of moral qualities in children;
- An explanation of the key responsibilities of the individual in front of the family, homeland, loved ones.
It is the first lesson that largely sets the future educational mood of the children. Therefore, you should approach the preparation of the lesson carefully, carefully working out every detail and trying to make the classroom as interesting and informative as possible.
Rules and structure of the lesson on Knowledge Day
The classroom hour on September 1 is not an ordinary boring and boring lesson. This is an original thematic lesson that can be held in any format. In this case, the initiative and activity of the teacher play a key role. Only the teacher determines the format of the lesson. It can be a discussion, KVN, competition, festival, or even an excursion to the museum. The main thing is to rally the team and interest each student in the importance of the topic under discussion.
The structure of the lesson is unchanged:
- Announcement of organizational issues (course of the lesson, acquaintance, etc.);
- Congratulations on the Day of Knowledge;
- Discussion of educational topics.
It is precisely at such stages that the traditionally cool hour in Russia passes.
Theme of classroom hours for September 1 in the 2019-2020 academic year
From year to year, the Ministry of Education establishes a single theme for a lesson in the world, which is further adapted by teachers depending on the age of students and other features. But according to Olga Vasilyeva (Minister of Education), the topic will not be announced in 2019-2020. This is explained by the fact that the perception of the same subject by students of different classes will be different. Therefore, in the next academic year, the choice of topic remains with each teacher. The main thing is to adhere to moral and educational discussions.
Sample topics of lessons on Knowledge Day for students of different classes
Choosing a topic for the classroom should be guided by the individual characteristics of students and their age. Sample discussions for students of various classes are proposed in the table below:
|Age of students||Indicative topics|
The table does not contain two more topics that can be used for discussions in any class:
- I and the homeland;
- Lesson of Russia.
It is possible to conduct classes in these areas in a different format: with the invitation of politicians or the military. The main thing is to interest the young generation and direct it to further improve their education!
TRP and patriotic education in the opening lesson
In Soviet times, each student and his parent knew the meaning of the abbreviation "TRP" - ready for work and defense. But until recently, this formulation was incomprehensible to modern students. Everything changed in 2014, when V.V. Putin introduced the TRP into the school curriculum. The delivery of standards in this area is converted into special privileges upon admission.
Therefore, the patriotic theme of "Ready for work and defense" must be included in the educational program of students. It is thanks to discussions on classroom watches that patriotism is gaining popularity again, and the general spirit of the inhabitants of Russia is increasing.
The meaning of the introductory class hour in the further learning process
Knowledge Day is a holiday for children and teachers. This is the beginning of a new stage in the lives of children. This is the “opening word” of a teacher before a serious school year. Therefore, classroom time is of great importance in the general educational system. It is he who forms the patriotism, sympathy, understanding and humanism among the children. And a great responsibility in the effective education of these qualities lies with the teacher, who will not only organize a lesson, but understand the children and delve into their world.
This stage seriously affects the graduate student (9 and 11). It is at the last class hour on the Day of Knowledge that they seriously think about their future. And in this case, it is extremely important for them to receive the very instruction of the teacher, which would give faith in themselves and their strengths.
Recommendations to teachers on organizing the Knowledge Day
The world lesson for students in the 1st and 11th grade is fundamentally different. If in the first case the emphasis should be on the features of schooling, then in the second - on the approaching future. Therefore, it is necessary to approach the preparation of the lesson individually. The lesson should be developed taking into account the characteristics of the students (which should already be known to the class teacher). If possible, it is worth organizing children leaving the school - an excursion, a walk in the park, etc.
A huge amount of modern literature allows you to recreate an interesting and fascinating lesson on any topic. For a better perception by children of the material, try:
- Invite a guest to support discussions on the topic;
- Create an original conversation format (discussion, competition);
- Arrange (together with other teachers) a school flash mob;
- Use modern technology.
For students of all ages, clarity is important. And the more it will be, the better patriotic and moral questions will be learned by students.
