This course enlarges upon selected topics of the Grundkurs (“Introduction to TEFL”), and applies them to classroom practice. Issues such as dealing with heterogeneity and facilitating communicative competence are linked with teaching methods and techniques. The course also covers related practical topics such as lesson planning and classroom management skills.
Students are expected to attend class regularly and to participate actively, which includes a presentation (“Impulsreferat,” approx.10 minutes, with handout). The term paper (Hausarbeit - requirements to be found in the style sheet) can be written either in this course or in the first part of the Basismodul.
The Storyline Approach has been developed in Scotland fifty years ago for the subject of “environmental studies”. Within the last decade its value for teaching foreign languages has been realised, especially at primary and lower secondary level. It is a project-oriented method which is well suited to come up to the principles of foreign language teaching and the challenges in education today – to name just a few buzzwords: task-based learning, differentiation and individualisation, inclusive education, learning to learn, lifelong-learning, motivation, creativity. After a general introduction an example of a Storyline will be experienced hands-on and later be reflected upon. In the second part of the seminar students are going to develop their own Storylines.
