Useful Resources for Teachers of German

Useful Resources for Teachers of German

As teachers, we often look for great resources but when put on the spot, we don't know where to turn. This should (hopefully) be a situation of the past because now you have a whole - and long - list of great resources ready to go in your hands. These are my favourite resources, tried and tested and largely available on the internet - and most of it for free. Happy planning.

KS5 German: Introduction to the Passive (using recipes and eliciting)

KS5 German: Introduction to the Passive (using recipes and eliciting)

A really solid introduction to the passive voice (and another of my successful interview lessons)! Warning: many example sentences are based on recipes for e.g. Lebkuchen/Gluehwein - do not teach this on an empty stomach! There is enough for two lessons here, or perhaps one lesson and a homework. First lesson: focus is on UNDERSTANDING the passive voice, in the present tense only. Agents using 'von' are also touched upon. (.ppt and handout 1) Second lesson: the focus turns now to using the passive in a range of tenses: present, imperfect and perfect. This worksheet provides systematic practice in the style of a real-life situation.
