Differentiation - German sentence starters - word order and opinions

Differentiation - German sentence starters - word order and opinions

I designed this lesson for a group of students who struggled to give opinions in German, whilst using sentence starters such as Meiner Meaning each, Meines Erachtens, Ich denke, dass...... 4 powerpoint slides contained. Slide 1 & 2 should be laminated and given to students and put onto a keyring to support leaners. (This helps weaker students and it is a good strategy to help PP students, who may not have access to self-help guides). Slide 1 details 5 complex sentence starters and gives examples of how they work. Slide 2 contains 'wow words' to finish opinions - positive and negative phrases. (Relating to the topic of marriage) Slide 3 - Contains rules for an exciting game of 'Sentence Auctions.' Each student starts off with 140 Euros. Sentences displayed worth different amounts. Sentences displayed are both correct and incorrect. If you bid for a correct sentence, you win that amount. If you don’t bet, and the sentence is incorrect, nothing happens. If you bet, and the sentence is incorrect, you deduct that amount. If you don’t bet and the sentence is correct, you deduct that amount. Slide 4 - Students compete against each other, responding to a mixture of correct and incorrect sentences on mini-whiteboards, focusing on word order.

Great German Insults (classroom-friendly) Aimed at Y9

Great German Insults (classroom-friendly) Aimed at Y9

Some non-rude German insults aimed at a small group of year 9s. Aim of making the language seem a bit more fun. This is supposed to be a bit of funny lesson, and it's all fairly light-hearted. Ways to use resource: 1) Give out copy of the sheets and go through pronunciation of each one. Make sure pupils know where the stress lies - call and repeat. Included in one example is a video from Friends to demonstrate Joey's cute simpleness. Stop it after 20 seconds, as that gets the point across. 2) Sheet three is to see if they can correctly identify the appropriate insult for the people listed :D 3) If you felt it was appropriate (though I think you'd only do this with certain classes), you could get them to write an insult for a friend - be careful though in case some pupils are not high attainers, as they might take it to heart if they get called an "Evolutionsbremse") This will take roughly 20-30 minutes.
