Possible learning experiences

Although links between specific key competencies and achievement objectives have been provided for each example, language students can be developing all of the key competencies as they work towards the core achievement objectives.

1.

Selecting and using language, symbols, and texts to communicate – students receive and produce information.
Listening, reading, speaking, writing, presenting

Using the familiar expressions and everyday vocabulary they are learning, students produce a computer presentation about electronic gadgets, mobile phones, pets, or anything that is part of their interests or current topic of study and allows them to use the expressions and vocabulary in supported situations. At this early point of learning, they are also beginning to compare and contrast cultures. Students can then share the presentation with the class or use a printed version as part of a display in the classroom or around the school (e.g., library, foyer, or office). The presentation can be uploaded to a shared wikispace about favourite things and used as a text for reading or listening activities.

See example 1.

2.

Selecting and using language, symbols, and texts to communicate – students receive and produce information.
Listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing, presenting

Using the familiar expressions and everyday vocabulary they are learning, students work in groups to create a computer presentation of information to share on a social networking site. (Note: Discuss online safety with the students, identifying what information is safe to share, for example, a description of the situation of their house rather than the street address, a generic email address instead of an address linked to personal information, a screen name rather than a real name.) These profiles can be shared on the school intranet to use as a starting point for reading, listening, viewing, writing, speaking, and presenting. The slide could also be uploaded onto a wikispace as part of an exchange with a partner school within New Zealand or in a German-speaking country.

3.

Selecting and using language, symbols and texts to communicate – students receive and produce information.
Managing self and relating to others – students produce and respond to questions and requests.
Participating and contributing in communities – students show social awareness when interacting with others.
Listening, reading, speaking writing, performing, viewing:

Using the familiar expressions and everyday vocabulary they are learning (for example, for expressing opinions or making social arrangements), students work in groups to create and perform playlets for other beginning learners. They use formulaic expressions to give feedback on the performances, for example, super – any expressions they may need).

The short dialogue used as a base for the playlets could also be turned into rhythmic speaking or a rap for the students to memorise, for example, Tag, Meike, wie geht’s, wie geht’s? Gut, danke, und dir, und dir? Prima, prima (thumbs up), Heut’ geh ich ins Kino, ins Kino. Kommst du mit, kommst du mit?, and so on.
