(German Culture) BUNDLE- German Air Pollution Articles and Guides (5 Articles)

(German Culture) BUNDLE- German Air Pollution Articles and Guides (5 Articles)

This is a set of 5 articles written in English about Germany and it’s impending air pollution situation I use this resource as a class background knowledge builder before starting our chapter on the environment. I have the whole class read the main article regarding air pollution in Germany. The guide for this article is 2 pages and has students answer questions regarding the written text. They need to go online to visit the article so they can view the audio/visual supplemental items listed within the online article. The 4 additional articles are listed within the main article for additional topic support. I divide my class up into groups and have each group read a supporting article and do the 1 page guide. Then we share out our findings together. The entire project would last about 60 minutes. These articles are suited for high school level students. FILES IN WORD FORMAT. The articles are hyperlinked within the titles for quick access and also included as PDF for easy printing.

AQA-style AS/A Level Speaking Card: Familie im Wandel, Adoption

AQA-style AS/A Level Speaking Card: Familie im Wandel, Adoption

This AQA-style speaking card for A Level/AS was inspired by this resource (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-german-2016-speaking-card-familie-im-wandel-11801641). I've used the original source text (link given in resource) to create a speaking card and questions which very closely mirror the specification. This card falls within the 'Familie im Wandel' sub-theme, and focuses on issues of adoption.

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.
