3-level German Program ©2017
Welcome to EMC's Deutsch Aktuell program, where students interact with German language and culture through engaging activities, and group or class projects. Students advance their language skills through real-life communication, cultural interactions and integrated technology.
An essential question anchors student learning, such as:
Interpersonal Speaking skills are developed in real-life communicative interactions with a partner or group. Interpersonal Writing may involve responding to an e-mail message or a message on social media. Presentational Speaking and Writing activities allow students to share their lives and opinions with classmates and other German-speaking communities online.
Interpretive Communication activities ask students to demonstrate their understanding through activities rather than answering questions.
Students interact with the products, perspectives, and practices of German-speaking cultures while making comparisons to cultural aspects of their own communities. Students investigate and analyze cultural perspectives that underlie the practices in the German-speaking world.
Students relate cultural products to understanding the meaning of divergent perspectives within the cultures of the German-speaking world.
Key words in activity models are highlighted in yellow to help slower-paced students. Additional vocabulary and literary selections allows advanced students to proceed at a faster pace.
Activities for different learning styles and subject area interests in which students make connections are provided.
Ideas for project-based learning and assessment are included in the Machen wir weiter! section. There is always one activity that designates the student to work in a group or as a class in order to build communities within the school or online.
