                           Introduction
      
    The theme of my work of course is “The role of homework and the development of knowledge interests”. Presentation concludes the chapters at which I shall mention every point of view. In the first chapter I’m going to increase the main role of homework. I’m going to answer the questions how to organize pupils’ homework and how to make it successfully.            Y.B. Zotov writes that “Task for homework organically is rubbed out of preceding lesson and it is proved to be its continuation and prepares following lesson”. And we can see from Zotov’s opinion that homework plays an important role in teaching. Correctly organized lessons for home habituate children to the independent work, bring up the sense of responsibility, help to master the knowledge and habits.
   Also I’m going to explain what criterions will make homework successful. With that homework issues teachers will understand that without home task the educational work not only few effective, but often impossible.
   Homework is always differentiated with that aim, in order most of all prepared children would show maximum independence, creativeness and less prepared pupils would inquire on themselves the help from the side of the teacher and also pupils would aspire to do home task and strengthening obtained knowledge at the lesson, they would raise to more higher step of their development.
   In this chapter I’m going also to show the factors by the scheme, which influence to the doing homework. Checking homework also plays the main role. Because it brings up in children right connection to the homework.   
   The second main chapter is about the development of knowledge interests. My presentation concludes complete information about the knowledge interests. There are many admittances and ways of developing pupils’ interests.
   In the chapter 2 I’m going to show how to develop knowledge interests at the lesson of English. This chapter concludes types of activity, information about creativity, games as the main kind of knowledge interests and etc. Also I’m going to explain the power of story in the classroom and telling stories through songs. There are several types of activity in this chapter which help teachers of foreign language to enrich the knowledge interests of pupils. Stories and telling stories through songs are also useful for language teachers.
   From the theoretical point of view, I’m going to touch on the theme the Direct Method which may be used by teachers in enlarging of knowledge interests. 
   In fact the Direct Method receives its name from the fact that meaning is to be conveyed directly in the target language through the use of demonstration and visual aids, with no recourse to the pupils’ native language.
   From the practical point of view, I’m going to mention the teaching aids and materials and also my opening lesson at which I used different admittances. These teaching aids and materials are really useful for teachers to focus knowledge activities of pupils. The teaching aids and materials conclude the activities such as board drawing, realia, cue – cards, wall – charts, real and imaginary objects and etc. 
   One of the ways to deepen the knowledge interests of pupils – is teaching listening. In this chapter there are several steps to becoming a good listener for the pupils. Because seeing and listening the complete information about knowledge interests at the lesson pupils can develop their knowledge activities and of course their interests.
   I hope everything and the whole complete information which I present in my work of course will be useful for the teachers of English and for me for the further our activity.    
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Chapter 1. The role of homework. Two types of homework.
   I can call the discussion of homework issues as the strategy. Strategy use is reinforced outside the classroom through two types of homework. In the first type, pupils finish reading the material that we have begun chapter, they may preview the rest of the assigned text and predict what it will be about. While reading, they note questions they have and describe what other strategies they are using or could be using while they read. After reading, they can summarize the chapter and predict what future chapters will be about. At the same time that they use these strategies, they also explain why using them is helpful or worthwhile. In this way, strategy homework does not become simply rote skill learning but requires thought and concentration. 
   In the second type of homework, pupils keep track of the reading they do outside of class for pleasure or for other courses. They note down what they have read, how much they have read, what strategies they have used in reading and their evaluation of the text. This type of homework is meant to reinforce strategic behavior and to encourage transfer of strategy training to other tasks. In completing these assignments in recent semesters, pupils listed a wide variety of strategies. Their evaluations of the texts also indicated that they were reading in an attentive, thoughtful manner. Occasionally, the pupils would note that they had not used any strategies to read a given text. This point makes it probable that the strategies the pupils did list were ones they had genuinely employed and that they did not simply put them down after the fact to finish off a homework assignment.
