Wir Sprechen Deutsch: An Elementary Foreign Language Summer School Program. Grades K-8: A Guide for Teachers.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This guide contains daily lesson plans for a 4-week, 4-hour a day immersion program for an introductory German-as-a-foreign-language program. The program uses repetition, gestures, realia, puppets, and comprehension-based activities such as Total Physical Response; it also uses illustrations designed to promote the goals of comprehension, production, and cultural awareness at the level of Novice-High/Intermediate/Low on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages scale. The guide proper consists of a program description, a vocabulary list, a suggested daily activities section, and a basic materials list. By far the greater part of the guide is made up of five appendixes. These contain: (1) activity sheets; (2) visual aids; (3) suggestions for cultural activities; (4) a section on "The Three Bears" and "Little Red Riding Hood" for elementary and intermediate pupils; and (5) a section of word search and crossword puzzle activities. The illustrations, i.e., black and white drawings of visual aids, games, paper-doll cutouts, etc., are included in the appendixes. (JC)
