This is a workbook designed to accompany the Stimmt textbook for GCSE German.
There are 29 pages, including grammar summaries and activites, reading activities, writing tasks and a speaking mat for the topic.
It follows the topic content of the book and provides a range of complementary and supplementary activities. It has references to Bloom’s taxonomy and there is also a poster/diagram to explain these. The second booklet is the Edexcel GCSE German vocabulary for the topic of school in a booklet. The pupils need to translate and then the booklet can be used as a basis for vocab tests and revision.
There is plenty of opportunity for WWW and EBI with spaces for reflection and feedback.
We are using these this year to signpost feedback, AFL and a range of working techniques, including questioning and activities related to Bloom’s taxonomy and I thought I’d share. This has taken a long time to produce, hence the fact that I am putting this one on for sale rather than sharing free of charge (although please do browse my free resources, too). I hope that you find this useful.
There is also a link on the main page to a quiz on Memrise where you will find all the Stimmt Chapter 1 vocabulary.
The document is in publisher and is completely editable. I have supplemented our copy with activities from the Stimmt online course as we have a subscription, but obviously can’t share that version! You could, however, add pages in to match up to the coursebook if you, too, have a subscription.
You can use this document to explain to the pupils how the markscheme for the AQA Higher Writing 150 word essay is marked.
It can also be entered into the rubrics on Google Classroom and used to give online feedback (for content, you need to set 10 grades out of the 15 that you will use - I used top and bottom of each band)
It then automatically gives the pupils detailed feedback and all you have to do is enter the grades.
This booklet is set up with a mix of topic pages and grammar exercises:

p2 - The imperfect tense summary

p11 - The conditional tense

It assumes a reasonable level of understanding and would be best suited to year 10 and above.
A menu that allows pupils to choose their homework activities - the idea is that the starters, mains, sides and desserts are differentiated so that pupils have to choose a number of activities at different levels.
The design seems to appeal to boys in particular!
This is a PowerPoint that you can use to show pupils how to write a nice answer to the topic of Global Issues.
It covers the following language:
How to say what worries you most
A list of problems, economic and social
How to explain what you think is unfair about the situations
Saying what you think should be done about the problems using the subjunctive
Including imperfect and preterite tenses
Using the future tense to say what you will do to help in the future
Using the conditional to say what you would do if you had the chance
This is a video that leads pupils through using a variety of tenses to write a 150-word essay for the Global Issues Topic.
