The project focuses on developing lessons for beginning German classes that combine knowledge and understanding of German-speaking cultures with a focus on daily life, especially that affect students at the High School and College level. This approach reflects the current ACTFL standards for foreign language learning (preparing for the 21st century) and the South Carolina State Standards for Foreign Language. Since technology plays a vital role in student learning, Ms. Patinella will display Power Point presentations, as well as overheads to review documents. Ms. Patinella is able to show DVDs and you tube clips only once approved by the technology individual at her school. This academic year the school is transitioning to incorporate more technology into student learning so that students will have competence in technology.
