Pupils have to read the story, find the vocab as directed, and list/count the number of imperfect and perfect verbs - follows on from lesson on understanding when to use imperfect. Obviously delete the answers before giving to pupils, have filled them in for ease.
Lesson introducing rooms in the house, including a guessing-game for the starter, a match-up, a reading activity, battleships for speaking practice (handout version is already available on TES), a longer reading activity and an ongoing dictionary task as an extension activity. Successfully used as an interview lesson!
I use this activity during my lessons that include Lola Rennt. But it can be used in any subjunctive unit.
This presentation is meant to be done in small groups and their goal is to determine how they would get 100.000 DM (I explain about the transition to the Euro) in 20 minutes. They have to use the subjunctive tense and make make up a plan that could possibly work.
This product includes 1 power point presentation that includes 3 slides. 1st the introduction, 2nd the requirements and 3rd a grading rubric.
I use this during Deutsch Aktuell Level 2 Part A when I'm teaching students to talk about staying overnight places. This slide show fits well into any lesson that teachs about travel and requires the verb übernachten.
After learning the conjugation notes there is a video about a Baumhaus-Hotel that engages students interest in a modern and usual overnight option that is new in Germany. This video is embedded and is in authentic German, yet should have some recognizable words for most students.
After the video I ask them about whether or not they would stay in such a place using the subjunctive. There are 2 final slides. One that is for lower level students with just a scripted yes/no response and a higher level slide that asks students to explain why they choose yes or no. They would mostly be using the würden form of subjunctive, but you could modify it to require regular subjunctive II if you wanted or even change the situation into the past tense.
This is a Power Point presentation that I like to use to kick off teaching the Pluperfect in upper level German classes. The presentation is about 8 slides long and would take about 1 hour or slightly longer to go through. The slide show starts off with a narrative past tense review activity, which is circled back to at the end of the slide show.
There is a basic explanation of the tense, some examples, some practice sentences and finally the wrap-up group activity followed by a final group presentation.
