German Folk Dances: An Innovative Teaching Tool.
Wedekind, Almute
Mid-Atlantic Journal of Foreign Language Pedagogy, v1 p30-34 Spr 1993
This paper proposes the incorporation of folk dances into the German curriculum on all instructional levels, from kindergarten to college. Learning and performing folk dances provides students not only with cultural information about foreign countries but also with specific structural features of the foreign language. The teacher can select certain dances to teach numbers, prepositions, grammatical cases, imperative forms, etc. Additionally, current publications on the topic of teaching folk dances are evaluated and discussed, including booklets and videos available in the United States.
