KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

A couple of help sheets and activities on the topic of the environment which revise the use of three different tenses. Based on Echo 3 Rot K4E4 Umweltschutz (pp.66-67). Included are: - helpsheet of sentence builders on present tense (ich-form); - helpsheet of sentence builders in three tenses, plus hints on how to use and extend them (NB the same verbs are used in all three tenses) (all in wir-form); - set of sentences to translate into German (differentiation is in the 'level' on which students attempt the task - details on sheet. I devised this for my year 9 beginners' class. They found it tricky - I think the challenge would be there for learners who have more years of German behind them.

The Moral Dilemma Generator - [200 Slide PPT with 'Randomiser'] GERMAN VERSION

This resource has been translated from the English version with the author's (godwin86) position so that German teachers can foster moral debates in their classrooms. This is a great way to contribute towards SMSC education in your MFL classroom. The original English version can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-p4c-the-moral-dilemma-generator-200-slide-ppt-with-randomiser-philosophy-for-kids-11381522 Uses: -P4C (Philosophy for kids) -Form time activities -German lessons (KS4 & 5) -Debating societies -Making best use of spare time at the end of lessons Discussions follow one of four formats, each asking students to move from one side of the room or the other to make their position clear: teachers should then use questioning to foster a debate between students, encouraging them to present reasons for their choice and defend their position. The formats are: -"Which is more moral?" (students chose between two options) -"Agree or disagree?" (where students respond to a presented statement about morality of a moral issue) -"Who do you save?" (where students need to save one of two people/options, and justify the morality of their decision) -"Moral or immoral?" (where students cast their judgement on a given action, event or person. This resource is great value at £4.99 and cannot be found elsewhere: -It clearly contributes to the Moral aspect of your school's SMSC provision -It allows for countless hours of discussion and debate to be structured in a focussed and engaging manner. -It would take days to reproduce yourself. -It can save vast amounts of staff time in preparing cover lessons -It is the perfect way to make the most of any time a teacher might have left at the end of a lesson. -It deals with cross curricular issues Please note: this resource deals with controversial issues, debates and questions that may be deemed unsuitable for younger children. It is designed for secondary school students, but can be easily adapted to younger years with appropriate amendments by their teacher.
