Objectives: Listen to and comprehend German-language videotext; analyze and discuss both content and form; construct own narrative using narrative past tense in German
Students will complete a variety of pre-viewing, while-viewing, and post-viewing activities that check for both content and form. Students will organize information from the videotext, then analyze both content and form. The ultimate goal is the homework assignment. Drawing inspiration from the video, students will create an image (digital or handmade) depicting an event from their childhood and deliver a spoken account using the narrative past tense.
Using the music video "Territory" from French musicians The Blaze, students will interpret a representation of an Algerian family with a worksheet designed using a multiliteracies pedagogical approach. Before watching the video in class, students will read an excerpt of an interview in French with the musicians and answer true and false comprehension questions for homework.
At the beginning of the semester every student across all sections of a language course will brainstorm a medium (digital and/or physical) that has the capacity to include input from each student in GER 1101 this semester. Then, all students in each section will vote on one medium for the project. Examples include, but are not limited to: newspapers, magazines, a Youtube channel, a tumblr page, or website for a fictitious business or city. Over the course of the semester, journal assignments will act as drafts for the media submissions. Once the journal is revised, a final draft can be published via the collaborative medium.
