German Three Course Description
Types of Activities for the German Three class:
* class discussion
* homework assignments
* in class work / group work
The objectives of the German Three class are to further broaden the student's knowledge of German vocabulary, to introduce all of the grammatical concepts associated with the German language, and to practice speaking and writing everyday German. As emphasis will be placed on speaking the target language in the classroom. The students will also be introduced this year to a selection of German geographical capsules in the textbook and will be expected to respond in written and oral form. (based on readings and videos) Cultural aspects covered this year will be: German holidays and observances, famous Germans, and an overview of the German-speaking countries and their inhabitants.
The students will be using the Komm Mit II textbook and may use the workbook for extra exercises to practice their grammar skills. Handouts of grammar and culture will also be distributed throughout the year. The students will be expected to maintain an organized notebook (a three-ring binder) and should have a German/English dictionary at this time.
Hershey High School rules and regulations (found in the student agenda book) are to be followed in class along with the following rules expressly for German students:
a. All homework is to be completed by the student on his/her own. This is a practice exercise designed to reinforce the day's lesson. All homework will be graded for COMPLETION.
b. Quizzes will be given periodically to assess the student's understanding of a particular concept. Quizzes may be announced or unannounced. Tests will be given at the end of each chapter or after each section. Tests will always be announced.
c. All work missed as a result of an absence must be made up by the student. The student has a week after the absence to complete the missed work. This does not include homework which is due the day the student returns back to school. Failure to complete the work will result in a zero percentage grade for those assignments or assessments.
Viel Glueck dieses Jahr und mach Spass in der Deutschklasse!
