Each file contains a reading activity for students to complete. The texts are differentiated. The first file is the lower level text, second the mid-level and the third the higher level. On the pages after the four profiles there are a series of questions for students to complete, culminating in a writing task. The higher text also draws on prior knowledge from the self and family unit.

Listening activity based on a short report by ZDF heute - Onlinesucht bei Jugendlichen
The listening activity is differentiated - one set of questions is completely multiple choice, the other the students have to fill in their own answers.
The headphones image on the first slide of the powerpoint hyperlinks to the video in the ZDF Mediathek. The video does show some of the answers in text so you might not want to have the video showing when the students do the activity.
There's also a set of answers to the questions.
You can download the video from the following link (right like "save link as" [chrome]/ "save target as" [IE] on one of the "Abspielen" links):
There are 3 messages which students can listen to. It can be used as either a listening activity where students have to pick out key information or as a stimulus for students to draft their own responses to the messages, write them up, and record them as if they were calling the person back and leaving them a message. It should also familiarise students with the standard answerphone vocabulary should they make calls to German phones in the future.
Recordings made by a friend of mine who is a native speaker. Sound breaks up sometimes and is quite quiet in places so will need turning up.
There are two model texts for different target levels, students use the text as a model for writing their own text about a family.
There are questions in English to prompt them as to what to include. On one of the sheets there are also some 'sentences starters', which marry up to the question prompts.
