Architekturstile

Architekturstile

Planned as introduction to AQA Linear Unit on Art and Architecture. Short introduction of styles, then recognizing/ naming task. Paragraph about the Voelkerschlachtdenkmal in Leipzig to trigger own writing which the students got really into after discussing possible places. 'My favourite place' can of course be adapted if need be.

Meilensteine der Architektur - AS level architecture

Meilensteine der Architektur - AS level architecture

This is to support AQA German A level, Hodder & Stoughton book Kapitel: Kunst und Architektur, page 74-77 I have used this in combination with semerson6's resources https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-german-a-level-hodder-and-stoughton-book-kunst-und-architektur-11486144. The first task is about the famous buildings mentioned in the “Zum Einstieg” box at the beginning of the chapter. The powerpoint “Berühmte Gebäude” contains pictures of each of the buildings, showing each one for a few seconds and then moving on to the next (it plays in a loop). While watching the presentation students should fill in the worksheet about the name, country and function of the building. The web tasks ppt contains a link to an overview sheet of different styles that I found online. After going through the vocab with the students, they then use their devices to go to 360cities.net to look at a 360 degree view of the buildings (they are the same ones from the text on p. 75 which can be used as the answer sheet) and work out what style they represent. My students enjoyed that task very much and I think it bring architecture a bit more to life.

Architektur (Vergangenheit) - Leipzig

Architektur (Vergangenheit) - Leipzig

Some examples of historical buildings in Leipzig. This follows on from lessons on art history (styles, time periods etc). Pupils can receive the pictures of the buildings and the time period/building style document, and then annotate the pictures with their knowledge (i.e. pointing out round arches, use of concrete etc). You could then take them through the pictures so the pupils can jot down the name of the buildings. Afterwards we discussed the different styles, what they individually "say" to the pupil (links to expressing emotion & reaction), and then put together our own tour of Leipzig's architectural styles (using comparatives, superlatives and modal verbs). The final task was to discuss the final quote (I need to find the author of the quote!) - pupils enjoyed linking in historical background with the actual buildings, although it may prove to be challenging for some.
