Austria; Its People and Its Culture.
This curriculum guide details a 10-week German language course on Austria for advanced high school students. It is intended to help students develop skills of listening comprehension, reading, speaking, and writing German; to add to their knowledge of German grammar and vocabulary; to acquaint them with Austrian history and culture, and to have them read and discuss works of Austrian literature. The course focuses on five basic areas: (1) Cultural patterns in Austria, including geography, population, cities and states, ethnic patterns and folklore, sports and recreation, education, religion, politics and government, business and industry, theater, music and cinema; (2) Austrian literature; (3) Austrian music; (4) History; and (5) Austrian art. For each section the guide provides a list of resource texts, films, slides or maps, student learning activities and educational objectives. Lectures, seminars, field trips, reading, and written essays are some of the planned activities. Evaluation will include quizzes, tests, and individual conferences. A list of sources providing information, films, and maps on Austria is appended. (CHK)
