Creating Classroom Materials and Classtests in Sek II
Analyzing and interpreting different kinds of media are essential activities in the EFL classroom at Sekundarstufe II and mandatory requirements for classroom-based assessments and examinations. Learners at this level are expected to be skilled in this particular area. At the same time, a considerable number of teachers seem to struggle with the question of how these basic skills can be developed, and depend on educational publishing companies to supply them with ready-made teaching materials. Relying on this aid is becoming more and more problematic, as modern language teaching needs to flexibly respond to the needs of the learners and the content- and outcome-based specifications in the curricula and central exit exams, such as Zentralabitur. Accordingly, this class focuses on the analysis and interpretation of different media (film, fictional and non-fictional texts, advertisements, etc.), and on the development, administration and evaluation of various relevant assessment procedures.
Please note: This course cannot be taken if you have already taken “Analysis and Interpretation in Sek II” with M. Pentzek!
