KS3/4 German: Writing about an Exchange and the Environment (includes verb guide!)

KS3/4 German: Writing about an Exchange and the Environment (includes verb guide!)

Originally conceived to encourage students to improve on an existing piece of writing, this Writing Challenge could be used as a motivational competition (with prizes for the best entries), as a guided writing task in-lesson or an independent homework task. Maturer classes may even be able to cope with this as a cover lesson. The task: write a letter home about your (fictional) German exchange experience - your German exchange partner is Detlev, whose family are incredibly environmentally friendly (no heating, no electricity(!)). This challenge allows all students to create an end-product by choosing one of the three on offer (article, interview, poster). On the back is a colour-coded guide to verb forms and word order (present tense, modal/future structure, and verb-comma-verb/subordination, which could be used separately, or indeed throughout a GCSE course, as a reference tool.

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.

Nature: German Vocabulary Card Sort

Nature: German Vocabulary Card Sort

This is a card sort to help students learn words related to nature (20 words in total). This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task. - The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched. - The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students. They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks. - The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed.

Die Umwelt

Die Umwelt

This lesson gives students a variety of sentences to use when talking about the environment as well as introducing students to the wide range of recycling options available in Germany. It begins with 'man kann' sentences and discusses their structure. The lesson then goes on to demonstrate to students how to change these 'man kann' sentences into sentences with 'ich' and questions with using 'du', then gives them the chance to put these into practice. For example, students are guided through the grammatical differences between 'man kann Wasser sparen' - 'ich spare Wasser' - 'sparst du Wasser?' A really useful lesson for groups who still find getting to grips with the present tense tricky or who prefer to understand the grammar behind sentences rather than rote learning.

Developing speaking in German: Shrink me, grow me!

Developing speaking in German: Shrink me, grow me!

A way of modeling and encouraging extended answers. Model a lengthy sentence, and students must take turns to remove one element but leave the sentence 'intact' (i.e. still sensical) until they get down to the most basic structure. Then it's their turn to build up again from a basic structure, element by element. Some students will want to race ahead and put in 5 things at once - this is ok if they can do it correctly; if not, encourage them to go step by step. The example here is on the topic of environment/Umwelt.

GCSE German Umwelt (Environment)

GCSE German Umwelt (Environment)

A full lesson (can also stretch to 2) I did as an observation with Y11 on the topic of "Umwelt". It concentrates on the skill of writing for the outgoing controlled assessments, but it will still be very useful in the new spec as it is also about general writing skill and translation. This lesson comes with a PP, handouts, a help sheet for foundation candidates and ABCD posters for the plenary, where students had to turn to the correct letter stuck around the room. This lesson has been awarded "outstanding" twice. It is based on the Heinemann Higher book for GCSE but includes a help sheet for weaker pupils. I can also send you the lesson plan on request.

Umweltprobleme

Umweltprobleme

Aimed at Y11 German (High ability) as part of the environment topic. A series of 2 lessons about environmental problems based on the Edexcel German Textbook. First lesson: Introduce problems, write in German any that they see in the video, use the tables to develop more interesting reasons for why they are worried about certain problems, speaking debate. Second lesson: Guess which problem it is by the description, listening from the textbook (helpfully prepared for by last lesson's table of reasons), reading comprehension (using some nice wenn clauses) and then more speaking.
