Conversation Class Lesson Plan

Section: Advanced Conversation
Date: 24. November 2009

Class theme/topics discussed: Games

How did you pick this theme or topic? Since this was the last lesson before Thanksgiving Break, I thought it might be nice to have a more relaxed lesson where we would play German games.

How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I told the students that we could play German games that day and asked them to chose their favorite(s). They both immediately agreed on Tabu Extreme. The time went by very quickly and we played this game till the end of the lesson.

How did students react?
The students were very excited when I told them we would spend this lesson playing games. They even stayed longer after class to finish the game.

Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they were talking very much!

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Game: Tabu Extreme

Would you recommend this activity for a future class? Why or why not?
Yes, definitely. We had a lot of fun and we spoke in German the entire time of the lesson.
