Deutsch 102 - Stunde 12 [die Stunde = hour]

Outline plan:

  • Go over Test 7 as needed OR "5 Minuten sprechen"
  • Kapitel 8, Aktivität 1, number 3: Rate statements as: oft/manchmal/selten/nie [Work in groups on this question about group assignments smiley]
  • Review vocab from the "Anlauftext lesen" assignment. Students review the list briefly; then instructor asks some questions, pointing to the relevant items on the list:
    • Instructor leaves room, knocks on door [==> Students yell "Herein!"]
    • Wie sagt man: I have to give a presentation tomorrow.
    • Wie sagt man: Did you catch a cold? [Use "du"]
    • Wie sagt man: He broke his leg.
    • Wie sagt man: I was really unlucky!
      • Time permitting: Wie sagt man: I was lucky! [Review of "Schwein gehabt" from 101; or of course "Glück gehabt"]
    • Wie sagt man: I can't remember. [accept responses with or without "daran"]
    • Wie sagt man: This topic is currently very relevant. [Dieses Thema ist sehr aktuell]
    • Wie sagt man: Concentrate on the most important things! [==> "Konzentrieren Sie sich auf _____________"]
    • Wie sagt man: I'm already looking forward to the presentation.
    • Wie sagt man: We'll get that done!
    • Wie sagt man: I have to lie down.
    • Instructor points to "Haben Sie sich überhaupt für ein Thema entschieden?" on the list and asks: Was bedeutet "Ich muss mich entscheiden"?
  • Play Anlauftext (eBook pp. 290-1) ==> Aktivität 4
    • Read the questions first
    • Project vocab from the "Anlauftext lesen" assignment while students work on Akt. 4.
    • For qu. 2, note that it's Karl who visits the professor, and that Stefan asks him how it went when he comes home at the end.
  • Aktivität 6 quickly; then Gruppenprojekt role play (groups of 4)
    • 2 Studenten haben nichts gemacht & machen Ausreden [=make excuses]; die 2 anderen Studenten stellen kritische Fragen [i.e. the other 2 ask critical questions about the excuses]
    • If time is short: Just brainstorm Ausreden for not getting a project done on time
  • "Wissenswerte Vokabeln: die Tägliche Routine" (p. 298). Repeat vocab; then:
    • Sagen Sie dem Partner: Was machen Sie gern? Was machen Sie nicht gern?
    • Sagen Sie dem Partner: Was machen Sie nicht, oder sehr selten?
    • Sagen Sie dem Partner: Ich muss mich oft beeilen oder Ich muss mich nicht oft beeilen.
    • Sagen Sie dem Partner: Ich ziehe mich gern elegant an oder Ich ziehe mich nicht gern elegant an
  • Repeat ich-form of example sentences below pictures on p. 300
    • Aktivität 16: Ignore directions. Machen Sie das morgens immer, manchmal or nie?
  • Preview Aufsatz 1 topics.
    • Review details on citing sources. Above all:
      • Any part of the text students got help with (e.g. from a peer or in the German Lab) should be in bold print, and the name of the helper should be stated at the end.
      • Any word/phrase students looked up should be underlined, and the source(s) for it given at the end of the essay.
      • Any other sources students consulted should be listed at the end.
      • Students should read through these instructions carefully BEFORE starting to write.
    • Review advice in bold before the actual essay prompts. Above all:
      • Look for ideas by leafing through the book rather than brainstorming in English and then trying to translate
      • You will learn more from practicing what you've learned than from trying to say things you will say only once…
      • Getting ideas from the book will mean much less need to cite sources
    • Look at the topics and brainstorm with a partner
