WEBQUEST BERLIN

WEBQUEST BERLIN

Students will complete a general knowledge quiz prior to investigating Berlin. The idea behind the quiz is not to demonstrate a lack of student knowledge, but rather to show how varied the history of a particular monument, building or site can really be. The quiz in section 1 along with the questions in section 2 will help build a general overview of Berlin and aid them in their choice for their presentation. These sections will hopefully highlight curiosities rather than just the basic facts about the city, which may be helpful in the presentation phase. In the presentation phase students should be encouraged to present minimal written text on their slides. They are taking the role of a tour guide and should try to develop a presentation to reflect this. They should be reminded that the best tour guides weave a story rather than presenting just the basic facts. They should draw on sections 1 & 2 for ideas of the type of curiosities which might appeal to tourists. The strictness of the presentation guidelines can be decided by the individual teacher, taking into consideration the ability and knowledge of their students. Note though this is primarily designed for students who are older and have a good command of ‘English’ it can be modified for native speakers as well as those students who are learning about Germany and who are studying German. Student should be encouraged to cite sources and provide a bibliography.
