Conversation Class Lesson Plan

Section: Advanced Conversation
Date: 20th Jan 2011

Class theme/topics discussed:
The political parties in Germany

How did you pick this theme or topic?
Students expressed their interest in watching and reading recent news about Germany, therefore it is helpful to know about the political parties.

How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
We read a short text for introduction together. After that we went to the FLRC and each student had to find out something about one party (when was it found, color, famous politian, goals). They had 20 min to do that. After that each student presented their party to the group. Then we had a discussion which parties we like.

How did students react?
Liked it a lot.

Did they engage with each other and you?

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
PC and internet.

Would you recommend this activity for a future class?

Why or why not?
My students told me after this class, that they enjoyed it a lot.
