Patriot into Traitor Reference to the Context
This is stanza has been taken from the poem “Patriot into Traitor” written by Robert Browning.
This poem is a criticism of politics and people’s opinion. When a leader comes into power, people call him a patriot. When he is dethroned, the same leader is considered a traitor. This is the tragedy of modern politics. The leader in this poem fell a victim to the same state of affairs.
When he came into power, people showered flowers at him as a patriot. But after a year, they declared him a traitor, when he was no more in power. They took him to the gallows. But Browning has ended his poem not on a tragic, rather on a next world optimistic note.
Note: The use of modern technologies at the lesson promotes the development of information literacy. Technologies penetrate into the most diverse spheres of our life. In many professions, even seemingly not directly related to IT, the ability to use technology competently becomes a necessity. There is a point of view that modern students who are related to the digital generation can figure out everything themselves. But it is not so. The majority will learn only the simplest things, and mainly associated with the consumption of content, rather than its creation. In addition, there are things that many of them have not heard about, and which will probably want to learn more, for example, creating and reading QR codes. Not to mention that not all children (and judging by some pages in social networks, and not all adults) have heard about such things as security and privacy on the Web, and do not think about how the “digital footprint” can affect their future life.
