Language Resident Name: Lea Marie Uhlending                                                   

Day and Date: Monday, 04/08/24

Language and Level:  Intermediate

Class theme/topics discussed:

Vacation in Germany

Goals of the class:

For the students to plan a theoretical vacation in Germany that they might even turn into a real one.

How did you structure the class?

I began by asking them a few questions like “Where in Germany would you like to visit?”, “What would you like to do?”, “Beach or city?”, etc. And then I gave them a specific situation and told them to plan a vacation. Afterwards they each presented their plans.

What technology, media or props did you use? (Internet resources, handouts, etc.)

the map, powerpoint, whiteboard

What worked well in this class? What did not work?

The students came up with interesting plans and I know that at least one of them will put parts of her plan into action.

How could this class be improved/ modified?

I think that this idea works well, especially close to the end of the semester. Their attention shifts towards their full credit classes, and to their summer vacation plans. So something low stress is a good idea.
