Gestohlen - mystery task

Gestohlen - mystery task

Students have to pretend they are policemen investigating a theft. They have statements from 3 suspects and 3 pieces of evidence. One of the suspects has made a subtle mistake and the pupils must sift through the German to work out who has made an error. Its really just a way of getting them to read for detail in prep for examination tasks. I tell them they have to present a summary of their investigation as a list of bullet points of facts they have discovered in the course of the investigation. N.B. the answer is Willi who says he was dancing with his sister but the dance lessons at this time are for boys only therefore he is clearly not telling the truth. Still my students favourite activity every year.

The expert helper will be able to make corrections to any orthographical mistakes in the work. The student will immediately see some red underlinings in his/her writing. The student will not see the corrected answer, but will have an opportunity to correct the work by following some hints generated by the system.

When work has been corrected by the teacher (or expert mentor, such as a penfriend), the student's work on the same assignment continues ... they can improve their percentage accuracy (displayed on their work) by following an automatic hint system guiding them towards the correct answer.Equipment requiredThis browser activity is available on computers, tablets, iPads and smartphones.
