Zonenkinder: Chapter 1 study materials

Zonenkinder: Chapter 1 study materials

Suitable for A level German students studying Jana Hensel's Zonenkinder as their set text. This includes a set of detailed reading questions which test students' understanding of the German and form an English key to the events of the first chapter. The second document draws together quotations which exemplify various themes that emerge in the first chapter. I intend to make these for each chapter. The reading notes encourage students to read independently after we have completed the first section together in class. We will then use them in the following lesson to ensure they have a good understanding of the reading they have completed at home and to identify any misconceptions. The thematic quotation sheet demonstrates how textual evidence can be found for the emerging themes of the text. As they gain confidence I intend to give just headings or a heading and one quotation and ask pupils to find their own for further themes.

P-E-E Grid - Main Characters in 'Russendisko'

This is a Point-Example-Explain grid I made for my Y13 German class to study the main characters of 'Russendisko' - what they do/say and what their role within the novel is. The grid is in German but could easily be adapted/simplified. I have proof-read the document, but apologise if any errors remain!

P-E-E Grid - Methods in 'Russendisko'

P-E-E Grid - Methods in 'Russendisko'

This is an activity sheet I produced to use with my Y13 German class when discussing the methods/techniques employed in 'Russendisko'. The techniques and key examples of each technique are written in the table in German - students had to fill in the analysis/personal reaction column in their own words. There are additional pages at the end of the document if pupils have additional methods that they would like to analyse.

P-E-E Grid for 'Russendisko' Themes

P-E-E Grid for 'Russendisko' Themes

This is a Point-Example-Explain grid that I made containing arguments, evidence and analysis of (what I believe to be) the different themes in 'Russendisko'. The arguments are in German and the ideas behind them are quite challenging - I used this as my starting point and simplified the ideas for my Year 13 students. I have proof-read the document, but apologise if any errors remain!
