This guide, designed to be accompanied by computer software, contains classroom activities and instructional techniques to be used in implementing the first-year core German language curriculum for Georgia's public schools. Activities are correlated with goals and objectives specified in the state curriculum. Each provides information and directions for teachers and/or students and includes suggestions for evaluation. Introductory sections discuss the philosophy of foreign language education, the planning process for learner-centered foreign language instruction, and suggestions for promoting students' cognitive awareness in the classroom. A series of classroom activity units based on core curriculum objectives and language functions follows. Each unit outlines the function, the activity objective, language needed, specific skills addressed, suggested time frame, materials needed, procedures, evaluation methods, and supplemental activities, and includes student worksheets. Unit topics include: animals; classroom objects; classroom routine; clothing; colors; days, months, and seasons; family; geography; rooms of the house; numbers; body parts; time and time expressions; vacations; and weather. Notes to students on the value of German language study, a sample German lesson plan, and a list of print, nonprint, and computer resources for instruction is included, and a series of handout masters is appended.
