KS2-3 German-Reading strategies arrow-whole lesson introduction to staged approach

KS2-3 German-Reading strategies arrow-whole lesson introduction to staged approach

Although the skills to access a text come naturally to some students, many others need to be supported in developing the necessary strategies. This tried and tested approach to reading provides a visual strategy which can be applied to a wide variety of texts in a second language or in English, improving not only language skills, but also general literacy. Particularly useful when exploiting authentic materials, it can equally be applied to more traditional texts and, once embedded, enables students of all ages to work successfully with more complex source materials than would otherwise have been the case. This resource models the strategy with a simple German text, however it can be applied to texts of a wide range of difficulty. It includes a ten slide teaching presentation to introduce the strategy, comprehensive teaching notes accompanied by thumbnails of all the materials, plus student sheets and the strategy arrow, which can be laminated for repeated use. The resource is also available modelled with a French text and with a Spanish text.

Russendisko Chapter-by-Chapter Guide

Russendisko Chapter-by-Chapter Guide

This is a guide I made for my Year 13 German class (AQA) to help them while reading 'Russendisko' by Wladimir Kaminer in German. I have provided the English translation of key words from each chapter, as well as a summary of each chapter in English. Students can use the guide while reading the book in German to help them understand what is happening in the text. This could, of course, also be used with Year 12 pupils if they are studying 'Russendisko' for the new AQA A level.
