German A1

Die Grenzen meiner Sprache bedeuten die Grenzen meiner Welt.

– Ludwig Wittgenstein

About the Course

Abraham LincolnHerzlichen Willkommen! Welcome to German A1, Paul W. Bell Middle School’s first foreign language course dedicated towards getting students on track to learning German.  This course is specifically designed to cater to the physical and cognitive learning needs of young learners who have little or no exposure to German, but seek to develop a strong foundational competency able to facilitate more advanced language study at higher grade levels.  During the course students will learn how to read, write, listen, and speak high German at level (sprachniveau) A1 as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

A1 Spracheniveau:

Students can…

  • understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type.
  • introduce themselves and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where they live, people they know and things they have.
  • interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

In course German A1 students will also familiarize themselves with important aspects of German history, including an entire 20th century unit focusing on World War II and the European Holocaust. The course will also explore German culture, including art, literature, music, film and television. Students will also get a glimpse of everyday life for people living in German speaking countries. Instruction during this course is designed to accommodate the various learning styles of mainstream, gifted, and ESOL students. Parents and students are welcome to blog or e-mail me with any questions or suggestions regarding the course or student progress.  äöüß

ECM II Detailed Instructions

Phase 1

The phase requirements will be explained as we progress through the project.  The first step, however, is to choose a Holocaust topic that intrests you.  Click the Holocaust Projekt Topic Chart link to lock in one of the topics under Gruppen und Themen. 

Phase 2
Based on the specific topic chosen in Phase 1 of the project, students will research information about the topic and its significance to the holocaust and the world today.  The research for the holocaust project depends greatly on the topic you have chosen. However, most projects, regardless of the topic, must cover the following information:

 – Topic Definition?

 – What happened?

 – Who was involved?

 – Where did events take place?

 – When did events take place?

 – Why did events take place?

 – How did events take place?

 – What were the causes of the events?

 – What information about the events are surprising?

 – 2 German terms with English translation that is particular to your topic.

How to Submit the Research

Copy and paste research from the Internet onto a Word document and save in the Holocaust Projekt Phase 2 Research folder in OneDrive. 

Include the research text, images, and the url addresses to where the text and images were found.  Please to do not include search engine url addresses.  See “Projekt Gruppen und Aufgaben” for details. 

Once you have decided which questions you would like to address for your piece you will search for answers on the Internet.

When you locate a website with information you would like to use, copy and paste that text information onto a Word document along with the website address.   You will also copy and paste pictures related to the text information.

Keep copying and pasting until you are sure to have enough information to allow you to eventually complete for Phase 3: 5 Paragraphs – 5 Sentences (per paragraph) – 20 Pictures of insightful and interesting information about your piece.  

Save the copied and pasted research and pictures into a folder with your name as the file name.  Then you will upload the folder to a folder in the OneDrive ECM shared folder labeled “ECM II Research”

Phase 3
Provide a variety of images that support the information researched in Phase 2 of the project.  The images are to be appropriate in content, clear and sharp with no pixelation and watermarks.  Copy and paste the images onto a Word or PowerPoint document along with the source url (not the google search engine url).  Save the document of images to the OneDrive Holocaust Projekt Phase 3 folder. 

Phase 4
Visit pechakucha.com and start learning about this presentation form by reading “What is PechaKucha?”  After reading the description, scroll down and choose an actual PechaKucha of your choice and watch it.  After watching the PechaKucha video, complete and submit the following online form.  Please be complete and as honest as possible. 

Phase 5
Provide an overview of how you intend to incorporate the research you have already done into creating your own PechaKucha.  In other words, you should make a list of 20 items with each item representing what you will take about for a given slide. For example:

For example topic: Nuremberg Military Trials
1. Introduction: Name of narrator, topic name, and definition of topic
2. Purpose of the presentation
3. Historical background behind why there were Nuremberg Military Trials 
4. Context: Where and when did the Nuremberg Military Trials take place?
5. Who were the main people that conducted the trials?
6. Who were the main defendants? Why were they on trial?
7. What were the arguments on both sides?
8. 1st German term with English translation that is particular to your topic.
9. 2nd German term with English translation that is particular to your topic.
10. What is the significance of the Nuremberg Military Trials?
11. Etc.

Make sure that when the planning presentation, keep in mind that each slide is 20 seconds long and you want to cover the most important and interesting aspects of your research. 

The list is to be typed on a Word Online document and saved in the OneDrive Holocaust Projekt Phase 5 folder. 

Phase 6
Write the script or outline for your PechaKucha narration.  In order that the narration comes out more naturally, instead of writing a script, it is suggested that you create an outline and use it as a guide when recording your script for Phase 9 of the project.  

Unless sharing an occasional and significant quote, the script is to be based on your research and written in your own words.

Other than to provide an introduction, you don’t need to include narration for the slides featuring excerpts from the performances.     

Make sure that when writing the script/outline, keep in mind that each slide is 20 seconds long and you want to be sure that your information fits within this timeframe.   

Phase 7
1. Create your 20 slide PowerPoint to serve as the visual component supporting your narrative.  Each slide in the PowerPoint must adhere to the following criteria:

2. The title slide must have the name of the topic and the student name.

3. Each slide must have at least one picture not used for any other slide.

4. The only text recommended for slides are titles, names of people, and important concepts.  There are to be no sentences added to slides unless presented as an occasional significant quote.

5. You may use PowerPoint animations during transitions and during the slide presentation to enhance the viewers experience.  

6. The slide must be shown for exactly 20 seconds.  If available with your version of PowerPoint, you may program the application to change slides automatically.  Otherwise, you will later have to change the slides manually using a timer. 

7. Make sure you adhere to the following best practices when making a professional looking PowerPoint presentation:

Correct all spelling or grammatical errors.
Center and align text and pictures aesthetically and uniformly. 
Insert a thin to medium thickness border around all pictures.
Avoid placing pictures right up against the edge of the slide. 
Animations should be quick, smooth and minimal.
Make sure that text is easy to read and don’t clash against the background.

Phase 8

[Legacy PowerPoint Option] 

During this phase you will make a video of your PechaKucha Powerpoint.  The instructions provided here are for creating the video using a computer with the legacy or full version of PowerPoint installed.  Because of the higher results in video quality, this is the preferred option for completing this project.  If you don’t have the legacy version of PowerPoint at home, I could make the conversion for you. Just send me an email and make sure the final draft of your PowerPoint is already saved in the Phase 7 folder. 

This phase is not for recording the narration–only the Powerpoint video without sound.

Before beginning make sure that you are completely satisfied with the PowerPoint and that there are no spelling or grammatical errors.  

Part 1 – Converting the PowerPoint Presentation to Video

5. Click File > Save As > Name the file with a title followed by your name.
6. Underneath the file name change the file type to MPEG-4 Video > Save.
7. Wait for the file to convert (This may take a while. See status bar.)

Part 2 – Editing PowerPoint Video in iMovie

1. Open iMovie.  (If iMovie doesn’t open, try reinstalling.)
2. Tap the big + symbol > Movie to start a new project.
3. On the right column tap your PowerPoint video(s) then Create Movie.
4. Be sure to also include your performance video(s).
5. Connect all the PowerPoint videos together in the correct order.
6. Be sure to disable the Ken Burns and transition effects.
7. Shorten or lengthen slide segments so they are exactly 20 seconds long.
8. Once you are satisfied with the iMovie video, click Done. 
9. Tap the title “My Movie” then rename it: “Your Title by Your Name”.
10. Tap on the share icon at the bottom > Save Video > HD – 720p.
11. Open Photos > Select > Your Movie > Share icon > OneDrive
12. Once the video has uploaded to OneDrive, move it to the Phase 8 folder. 
13. Don’t forget to change the name of the video once it’s in OneDrive.

Your movie should be 6 minutes and 40 seconds long in total. 

[iPad Only Option]

During this phase you will make a video of your PechaKucha Powerpoint.  The instructions provided here are for creating the video using an iPad with iMovie.  You will also need a stopwatch to keep time. 

This phase is not for recording the narration–only the Powerpoint video without sound.

Phase 9

During this phase you will add your voice narrations to the PechaKucha video using your iPad.  If you have available another device or application that would allow you to delivery a better quality voice narration, I would suggest you take advantage of it.  Otherwise, if you follow these instructions you should be able to create a nice quality audio with just your iPad.

In addition to your iPad, you will need the following: a quiet place to record without any background noises, a microphone (Apple EarPods have a good microphone when attached to the iPad. I haven’t yet tested it with AirPods), and a separate device or sheet of paper with your script. 

1. Open your video in iMovie.
2. Attach the microphone (EarPods).
3. Swipe to the beginning of the video where the narration starts.
4. Tap on the little microphone icon on the left of the screen.
5. An ideal and quiet enough location displays no more than 3 green bars.
6. Tap Record and start narrating immediately after the count down.
7. Unless you are feeling confident, record during one slide at a time.
8. Tap Accept if you are satisfied with the take, otherwise tap Retake. 
9. After narrating the entire video set the volume level one block at a time.
10. Tap the audio block > Volume > and adjust to about 200%.
11. Test and make sure the volume levels are even throughout the video.
12. Tap Done > Share > Save Video > HD 740.
13. Once saved on your iPad, upload to the OneDrive Phase 9 folder.
14. Rename the file with the title and your name. 

Reid’s Suggestions for creating a Great Narration Recording

1. Practice speaking the script before recording.
2. Be natural.  Don’t sound as though you are reading a script.
3. Use inflection, emphasis, tone variety, and smooth/ clear pronunciation.
4. Speak loud and confidently like you know what you’re talking about.
5. Speak as though you are in front of a very friendly audience.
6. Let your voice reflect that you enjoying sharing and are having fun.
7. Do not read the script.  Perform the script.  
8. Remember the mistakes you observed on the PechaKucha site and be better.   

Phase 11

(Extra Credit – Replace any “Z” grade earned for the Holocaust Project with an “X”)

Holocaust Projekt Research & Images

The research for the holocaust project depends greatly on the topic you have chosen. However, most projects, regardless of the topic, must cover the following information:

 – Topic Definition?

 – What happened?

 – Who was involved?

 – Where did events take place?

 – When did events take place?

 – Why did events take place?

 – How did events take place?

 – What were the causes of the events?

 – What information about the events are surprising?

How to Submit the Research

Copy and paste research from the Internet onto a Word document and save in the Holocaust Projekt Phase 2 Research folder in OneDrive. 

Include the research text, images, and the url addresses to where the text and images were found.  Please to do not include search engine url addresses.  See “Holocaust Projekt” for details.

Guidelines for Your Powerpoint Templates

The process of setting up a template is quite simple and we’re going to tell you how to get started. The rest of the creativity is up to you.

  1. Open PowerPoint. In slide view, right-click on the first slide on the left and select Layout and Blank. This creates a blank canvas.
  2. Right-click again on the slide and select Duplicate.  This creates another slide just like it.
  3. Since the Duplicate command is already in PowerPoint’s memory, use the shortcut Ctrl-Y to repeat the duplicate (or just right-click duplicate again) 18 more times, for a total of 20 blank slides.
  4. Use Ctrl-A to Select all slides in the left, and then go to Animation, advance slide and set it to 20 seconds.
  5. You can also select transition styles and speed here. Just don’t choose Dissolve—the simplest is the best. Maybe nothing more than a simple fade.

Getting the Most out of Pecha Kucha

Here are some tips for creating your presentation the Pecha Kucha way:

  • Insert images as usual, resizing them to your liking.  Best practice is to fill the screen unless using space for emphasis.
  • Avoid writing out a script for your narration. Write a simple outline for the big ideas of each slide. The best situation is when you know your topic so well that you don’t even need an outline. Use the outline for planning purposes, then impress everyone without it when you present in person.
  • Practice your masterpiece repeatedly until you get it just right. If you are new to presenting, use the narration the tool/rehearse timings in PowerPoint. The general word count is dependent upon your own pacing, but no more than 60 words per slide is a good start.
  • You can also record your narrations within PowerPoint for each slide. But be sure not to “save timings”  when you’re done, as that will negate the automatic 20 seconds you put in place previously.
