Let’s try to do that together recently many of you have seen ‘The Jesuit», one of the films of the popular sci-fi serial «BABYLON 5».

How did she try to answer it? What would 3011 say if you were in her shoes? How would you IDENTIFY yourself?
Students give answers to the question «Who are you»( name, family and its ethnic and other roots, their participation in school life , loco! community events, the region where they live in Russia, the continents (Europe & Asia) and they start becoming aware of the complexity of the notion «identity».

And here we may start speaking about such a concept as «EUROPEAN IDENTITY» . And what do many Europeans have in common and in what way can they differ from each other? Students express their ideas on similarities and differences in terms of:
• political structures
• cultural heritage
• being members of the Council of Europe, the European Union
• tolerance to their cultures
• quality of life
• attitudes to such European values as human rights, non-violence in conflicts, democracy, common heritage, etc.

What do you like most of all in your country? Do the Irish people have much in common with other Europeans or not
What other questions would you like to ask?
Students make suggestions on questions to be included in the questionnaire and all of them are written on the blackboard .Then they discuss which of them should be or may be included , and which of them are not very helpful in exploring the area under consideration.
