Lasst uns feiern! (Let’s celebrate!)

Level 7, 8
Check Resource
This Year 8 German unit of work is designed to engage students through innovative use of technology, strategic use of High Impact Teaching Strategies and meaningful opportunities to learn and use the German language. It is based on the Victorian Curriculum: German (7-12 pathway) and includes the unit planner and all teacher and student resources required for the 14-lesson sequence (11 resources in total).

In this unit, students work together to plan a celebration, discussing possible dates and times, as well as needs and preferences relating to food and drink and quantities required. They learn about the near future tense and use this to make plans with friends. The unit culminates in a celebration of learning with a class ‘party’ which will allow students to share work created throughout the unit.

The 11 resources in this package include:

Unit Planner 
Resources Powerpoint
Pre-test and Start of unit reflection   
Class Survey Activity
Lesson 6 Pulse Check
Lesson 9 Pulse Check 
Exit ticket - Adverbs of preference
Glossary - Telling the time
Glossary - Grammatical terms
Glossary - Party items & quantities
End of Unit reflection & Self-evaluation

Ideas for using this resource

The unit planner is comprehensive and provides the HITS alongside the learning activities.

It would also be a useful starting unit for Year 8 and a textbook alternative (as a way of organising your own units and moving away from course books).

The Teacher Powerpoint provides all the audio files and links to quizzes/Quizlet/videos in one place.

The resources for student goal setting, reflection and exit slips/pulse checks give the students a starting point with the language they need to articulate their reflections. 

The glossary of grammatical terms is handy for students to stick in their books for reference.

The range of activities and products are meaningful and engaging to students at this level. 

There is scope within this unit to revisit or consolidate concepts from Year 7.
