This course is designed for students interested in a combined language and literature course. It begins with an overview of German history from the year 9 to 1933. Students will engage in discussions about the major historical events that helped shape modern day Germany. Each student will complete an individual project, on the topic of their choice, covering the years 1933 –1945. All students taking this course should be prepared to do on-line research about this time period and present a five minute talk to the class in German. Students will begin their study of German literature with a series of short stories. Several relatively difficult units on German grammar will also be covered throughout the year. This class will prepare students to enter the Advanced Placement German course.
