DE S10 ADV Creative Writing

Conversation Class Lesson Plan

Section: Advanced Conversation
Date: February 9, 2010

 

Class theme/topics discussed: Creative story telling

How did you pick this theme or topic? The students had really enjoyed the previous lesson and working creatively, so I thought of another exercise, where they had to use their imagination a lot and create something new.

How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
To get my students’ imagination going, I played a game first. I put a sheet of paper on the table which showed a little guy, we called him Manni. I asked the students to describe Manni, think about what he might like to in his free time, what he likes to eat, where he works, etc. The students were supposed to work together while describing him: Each student was only supposed to say one word, and then the next student would continue the sentence and so on.
Then, I gave each student an ABC-list, which they were supposed to fill with German words starting with letters A-Z. After that, the students were supposed to share their words and write a story or dialogue, using as many words out of their lists as possible. Then, they presented their product.
Finally, we played a well-known game to end the lesson: 20 questions. Every student (one after another) was supposed to think of a German word and the other two were supposed to ask questions to guess the word.

How did students react?
The students love Manni! They had fun doing teamwork in order to describe him. They also liked to write their own story and present it.

Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they talked a lot. They seemed to have a lot of fun too.

 

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Sheet of paper with ‘Manni’ picture
ABC list

 

Would you recommend this activity for a future class? Why or why not?
Yes, I would. The first exercise could also be used at the end of lessons, if you need to fill a couple of minutes, because you can end this game whenever you want, there is no certain time range required.

Manni

1. Game: Guess Who?
One student thinks about their classmate from Russian-33 group, the others guess – ask questions about his/her appearance.

2. Students read and translate the following story by Daniil Kharms (see file Oct 6_Text in the Visuals folder on Sakai):

Голубая тетрадь № 10

Был один рыжий человек, у которого не было глаз и ушей. У него не было и волос, так что рыжим его называли условно.
Говорить он тоже не мог, так как у него не было рта. Носа тоже у него не было.
У него не было даже рук и ног. И живота у него не было, и спины у него не было… Ничего не было! Так что непонятно, о ком идет речь.
Уж лучше мы о нем не будем больше говорить.

Даниил Хармс (1937)

Занятие 10. Внешность

1. Brainstorming: distribute the handout Oct 1_Brainstorming

Draw the same scheme the whiteboard and ask the students to think about the aspects of physical appearance that we usually mention when describe a person and fill out the scheme.

In the end there should be the following words in the circles:
«рост», «возраст», «фигура/телосложение», «волосы/прическа», «лицо», «особые приметы.

After that ask the students to develop the scheme and add more circles around the secondary ones. For example, around the circle “лицо” there will be several circles for «цвет лица», «форма», «черты лица» – and for the latter there will several circles for «глаза», «губы», «нос», «лоб»…

2. Distribute the handout #2 (from former LRs’ archive, exercises on physical appearance vocabulary).
Do the exercises.

3. Role play: «Фоторобот».

Students work in pairs, each student chooses to be either a police officer or a witness. The police officer gets a handout with the guidelines for the interrogation (Oct 1_Instruction); the witness gets a picture of a criminal (Oct 1_Suspect). Police officers have to draw a “photo robot” following the description provided by a witness. At the end the photo robot and the original picture are compared.
