Joyeux Noel (movie) Worksheet -- with answer sheet

Joyeux Noel (movie) Worksheet -- with answer sheet

Joyeux Noel is one of the greatest movies ever made, and I like to show it just before introducing a U.S. History segment on World War One. My wife, a French teacher, also shows it in her French classes. This worksheet has a variety of content-based questions requiring 1-3 sentence answers, along with a few that require outside research on the topics of international law and other issues. The questions are designed for a U.S. history class, but can be adapted for the cultural aspects of a French or German language class. Questions preceded with a “►” can be used as DBQs for longer 5x5 essays. – Thomas R. Eddlem

Zonenkinder Reading Tasks

Following the introduction resource, these 2 cover up to chapter 5. Given the students have the same edition, I could work with page numbers. Tasks include discussion questions, partly based on quotes from the text, some translations, comparisons etc. The intention is to either put in on Moodle or send it to the students, then use it as we go along, do some tasks in class, have some for hwk, allow some individual pace, use some of the questions for writing.

Musik zum Thema Grammatik für Fortgeschrittene SET 1

Musik zum Thema Grammatik für Fortgeschrittene SET 1

Enrich instruction by using my Musik zum Thema Grammatik für Fortgeschrittene sets. Have upper level students at A.2 level listen to authentic songs and then follow a set of text codes to analyze 5 of the grammatical structures used within the lryics. Students get to listen, analyze, build vocabulary and see their grammatical knowledge grow. In my classroom I introduce the song to the class and let them listen to it. Then I have them work on the grammatical analysis, following the text codes. Many of the concepts are familiar to them and some are new. When they come across new concepts I encourage them to look online to try and determine more information about that concept. This empowers them to use the web for a research purpose. The analysis worksheet included asks students to list the coded word/s, identify their grammatical name and give an additional example of the grammatical topic not listed in the song. This forces them to extend beyond what is just listed in the song and helps them to grow their grammatical competence. Each set has 3 German songs by recent artists of various genres. The sets include a PowerPoint slide show that includes the songs embedded, a song analysis worksheet, and the song lyrics with various grammatical concepts coded. The PowerPoint is editable for customization and I also provide the set in PDF form to share with students as well. Songs in this set: Set 1: Du bist die Sonne - Die Drogen (modals, accusative pronouns, coordinating conjunctions, accusative prepositions, da-compound) Erkläre mir die Liebe - Philipp Poisel (interrogatives, accusative pronouns, accusative prepositions, dative pronouns, dative prepositions) Krieger des Lichts- Silbermond (subordinating conjunctions, accusative pronouns, genitive, imperative, infinitive construction) More Song Sets Coming Soon in My Store!
