Continuing with an emphasis on communication, students will move away from patterning exercises and onto open-ended language construction. The third level of the text will be used during the first semester. The text and its ancillary materials cover more age appropriate topics such as environmental issues, military vs. alternative civilian service, youth hostels, alcohol use and driving. Grammar will be taught as an adjunct to the goal of communicative proficiency. Speaking skills and the acquisition of vocabulary remain the focal point. During the second semester, students will read three fairy tales and each student will be required to participate in the enactment of a Grimm’s fairy tale. Assessments will include traditional tests and quizzes, posters, skits and power point presentations.
