Am Beispiel "Anatomie": A Proficiency-Oriented Approach to Film for First- and Second-Year German
Rogers, Jeff
Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, v40 n2 p171-182 Fall 2007
This article presents a proficiency-oriented approach to teaching feature films in the first- and second-year classroom. It argues that film is currently under utilized at the Basic and Independent User levels, particularly as a means to create context in the classroom. Strategies are presented to tap the potential of film for communicative exercises. A discussion of the general didactization process is then followed by sample exercises developed around the recent German horror film "Anatomie" (2003).
