This is a writing exercise for a novice German class focussing on writing a fictional personal ad. The exercise is built around the tool PADLET which allows students to share their writing in real time with their classmates. This project comes with a video that talks about the advantages of this exercise but it also points out what instructors need to be aware of. An additional tutorial that shows you how to set up PADLET is added as a link.
"Gesundheit" is designed for students on short-term study abroad in Germany to learn about practical and cultural aspects of the German healthcare system. The project includes short explanatory texts, vocabulary, links to videos, and worksheets, all found on the website, as well as instructions for study abroad leaders.
This activity is designed to have your students engage with German film - an important cultural product - by using a couple of simple tools to narrate film clips in the target language. Using Quicktime (software that is already found and accessible on a Mac), you as the instructor can prepare a film clip for your students; students can then use Quicktime to record their own audio, and iMovie to add their audio narration to the clip.
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.
