Deutsch 102 Kultur-Texte

Instructions for Culture Assignments:

0. You will post your responses to the Kultur texts in Canvas Discussions.

1. For each chapter, you should spend about 40-45 minutes reading/browsing the materials listed for that chapter, which consists of (a) 2-4 short articles or websites on topics connected to the chapter; (b) an “Easy German” video; and (c) the list of “Brennpunkt Kultur” boxes included in the chapter. Note: Only the Brennpunkt Kultur info will be tested on the chapter tests. The articles and “Easy German” will not.

2. Now spend about 15-20 minutes writing a post (in English, but include as much German as you like!) with your reactions to what you read, and maybe some favorite quotes. It’s great if you can include images, or links to other relevant articles, videos, or websites (some, or even most, of your post can be about these related materials, if they’re relevant).

3. There is no length requirement, but your post should give your instructor the impression that you spent the suggested length of time reading the articles and writing your post. Remember to include your name as a label, as well as the appropriate “Kultur” label, i.e.” Kultur1″ for the Kapitel 7 assignment,” Kultur2″ for the Kapitel 8 assignment, etc.
