A resume of the 1954 World Cup scores which I have used to support teaching of the film Das Wunder von Bern. Give students the second sheet and read the text to them. They fill in the missing info. This was useful as my class struggle whenever they hear large numbers. The football theme kept their interest.
A power point which aims to introduce learners to the concept of compound nouns. This is useful for younger learners as well as KS4 pupils who may benefit from breaking down longer words when reading or translating.
Starter/Plenary activity to promote thinking skills and revise 'Stadt' vocabulary. Pupils must study the images and work out the German word. I got mine to write out the word and awarded points with extra points for perfect spelling. The answers are on the last slide.
I produced these resources to get students thinking about Integration. All the German opinions are taken from Online Forums and the texts from online newspapers. Was useful to provoke discussions / elicit opinions from the students. Hope you can use it too !
Powerpoint of facts and images to assist in delivery of a lesson about globalisation and fairtrade. While the structure and linking of ideas are my own, some of the slides may be from colleagues and other TES contributors. Hope it can be of use to others.
Put pupils in pairs and supply each pair with a map of the London Underground (print off from Internet) They must use their knowledge of German plus the map to work out which station is being mentioned. A 10 minute fun activity which the boys especially seem to enjoy.
Pupils are put into pairs and must sit back to back. One pupil is given sheet A and the other B. One pupild reads the beginning of a sentence and the other must scan through the possible endings and read what they believe to be the correct one. Both must write in the missing part of the sentences. Took my class about 15 minutes. Translate and manipulate the sentences at the end.
I have used this with weaker groups at the start of Year 10 (and before any wretched controlled assessments) to show pupils how translators cannot be relied upon to produce accurate language. We highlight the importance of good spelling in English and focus on choosing the correct translation where there are several available options. Sadly all of these are real examples !
I have found a German trailer for a film to be released in January 2014 about Mandela. I have transcribed the words and made a gap fill activity. Have given this to Year 9 and 10 and made a harder version for my AS class. Hope someone else can make use of it.
A selection of music artists translated into German for pupils to translate. A light hearted starter which my class enjoyed. Includes some recent artists to make me look cool...just wish I knew who they were.
