German: East Germany Stasi - Simulation Class Project

German: East Germany Stasi - Simulation Class Project

This lesson is in German. It can be adapted for levels 3-AP. It is a great activity to do after watching the Lives of Others (FYI make sure to edit this film before showing in a class!) After prepping student to understand the basic history of East German Life have them better understand the concept of the Stasi through this engaging lesson. A brief section on adjective endings is included. Includes: 1. A power point called Stasi Universität where you learn to become a Stasi. Start each class with simple regular physical exercises, then discuss what a traitor is, some basic Stasi rules and how to tell a liar! The powerpoint focuses on simple language and some key vocab. Have students memorize these things as a part of their Stasi exam! 2. An observation form. Assign students to observe and monitor another student in class. Make sure they understand it is a secret! Then they fill out their "report" on their suspect. Share these reports a week later in class. If a student was uncovered then they are not allowed into the Stasi! 3. Have students complete the Stasi exam! 4. A certificate of completion for those who are able to make it ;) Print this description if you decided to purchase.

Berlin Travel Agent Research and Speaking German Project

Berlin Travel Agent Research and Speaking German Project

This assignment is designed as a research project that encourages students to research authentic websites for information and uses web 2.0 resources to complete the presentation portion of their project. I have the students complete the assignment as a Google Document, but it could also be done as an in-class project or used in a online German class. If done in class this project would take about 3- 50 minute class periods. The students are travel agents in the city of Berlin and they need to access the web ( or have access to print outs of the web info) to complete 4 activities: 1. Research 6 sites in the city of Berlin 2. Use googlemaps.de to give directions to lost tourists 3. Record themselves giving the directions using the online free recorder Vocaroo.com 4. Record themselves giving a sales pitch to tourists and why they should visit Berlin

Song Lyrics Analysis Worksheet

Song Lyrics Analysis Worksheet

Worksheet in English. The link to the monthly top 10 hits in German from Germany is listed in the directions and provided by the Goethe Institute. So, you don't have to list hunt or create playlists! Just assign this once a month! I usually do it in the middle of the month to make sure the list has been updated ;) My students love having the ability to choose the songs they want to listen to. Students can learn a lot from listening to authentic songs! Songs also tie to their emotions and keep them interested in learning the language. This sheet I generally assign as homework or schedule in the computer lab. I encourage kids to check out other songs by artists they like and follow up with questions like: What did you download? What videos did you like? Did you subscribe to anyone?

Die Schlagzeilen der Welt und Deutschland: New Headlines

Die Schlagzeilen der Welt und Deutschland: New Headlines

Teenagers are more connected that ever and yet they seldom have any understanding of major world events. This handout is targeted toward broadening student's global horizons in a format that is not overwhelming for them. Instead of picking single articles for students to read I have them research world headlines (link to Deutsche Welle site included in handout directions), thus reducing the stress or frustration they may feel when assigned full articles. I assign this to all levels of German even upper levels. I find that the more background knowledge students have about world events the easier it is for them to understand target language text I choose to work on. The purpose of this activity is to show students how big of a player Germany is in the world news. Now more than ever Germany is leading Europe through turbulent times. Students should be aware of how their language skills and background knowledge about Germany could be an asset in their future careers if they choose to work in an industry involving the global market. Evolving into a successful German student and Global Citizen is an essential goal for any language program! I generally take my students to the computer lab to do this for a 50 minute period. That way I can walk around and discuss the topics they are looking at together. The conversations have been very interesting and I can tell they learn a lot. I also don't force them to only focus on Germany, because knowledge of all world news help them to develop an interest in the large world, thus increasing their interest of foreign study, which would increase their interest to continue with the language.
