Conversation Class Lesson Summary
Language Resident Name: Mirja Schoderer
Day and Date: Wednesday , 4/15/15
Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): German intermediate
Class theme/topics discussed: Sentence structure
Goal of the class: repeat sentence structure
How did you structure the class?
Ice Breaker: talk about the rest of the week and their plans for the weekend
Activity One: review sentence structure with an example sentence
Activity Two: I had prepared cards with different words and sentence parts on them and they had put them in as many different combinations as possible
Activity Three: I gave them postcards, some of them my own from around the US, some of them leftover from the Open House with German cities and asked them to write a fake postcard, starting every sentence with a different part of a sentence
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
Printed cards, postcards, whiteboard
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
It was a great class! They really enjoyed the game and the postcards and I feel that after the rather dry grammar part of our last class, this was the perfect end to this grammar unit
How could this class be improved/ modified?
