Deutsch 102 Stunde 33

Outline plan:

  • Informal activity before class begins: Play hangman with the Kapitel 10 vocab.
  • Write 4 sentences in the Narrative past about Aschenputtel with books closed
  • Freie Kommunikation: Aktivität 10, p. 387.
    • Use Conversational Past, since this is a conversation, but e.g. "hatte" and "war" and also "konnte," "wollte," "sollte," "durfte," and "musste" when these come up.
    • Alternative topic ideas:
      • Die zwei Stiefschwestern erzählen dem bösen Wolf die Geschichte von ihrer Perspektive. Der Wolf stellt viele Fragen (z.B. Warum hast du sie nicht gegessen?)
      • Aschenputtel und der Prinz erzählen ihrem Kind, wie sie sich kennengelernt haben (für drei Personen; das Kind soll viele Fragen stellen).
      • Aschenputtel spricht (vor dem Ball) mit Schneewittchen über ihre Probleme (much of this would be in the Present tense).
  • EITHER:
    • "Narrative past quiz"
    • Each student writes three sentences in the narrative past about a famous person. Instructor collects the pieces of paper and reads them in turn to the class as a whole, which has to guess who is being described.
    • See overhead with examples
  • OR:
    • "Wiedersehen" overhead
    • Read the poem
    • Figure out the infinitives of the verbs
    • Note the 2nd line is a preview of Plusquamperfekt (Past Perfect). It means "They hadn't seen each other for a long time."
    • Compete with a partner to memorize and then recite as much as you can of the poem
    • The poem gives you a model of the two basic narrative past forms [i.e. strong and weak verbs], and war.
  • Video: "Rhabarberbarbara"
    • Watch the video
    • Identify the narrative past verb forms in the text of the video, which is included on the webpage
    • There are links to two versions of the video. The 2nd is spoken more clearly; the 1st is the original.
  • Work with the vocab worksheet that's due today:
    • Section D
    • Discuss the Aschenputtel question from the worksheet
    • Lieblingswörter and "Was passt nicht" questions
  • Preview the next Känguru reading
    • In the Reading Notes for tonight, read the notes on the first chapter ("Zensur").
    • Read the first few lines of dialogue on p. 70 aloud with a partner
      • Instructor clarifies what's going on here:
        • Das Känguru weiß, dass der Erzähler im Radio über das Känguru spricht. Findet es das gut? Was bedeutet "Lügen"?
        • Der Erzähler sagt im Radio, dass das Känguru sehr viele ____________ isst. Und er sagt, dass das Känguru viele Aschenbecher stiehlt.
          • Was bedeutet "Aschenbecher"? Und "stehlen"?
          • Sagt das Känguru, dass das stimmt?
          • Aber was ist neben der Schlafstelle des Kängurus? Und was ist im Schrank?
          • Also: es stimmt: das Känguru frisst viele Schnapspralinen und es stiehlt viele Aschenbecher.
    • Now read the rest of the "Zensur" chapter
      • What was the word "versu" supposed to be at the end?
      • Why does the story end in the middle of the word?
    • Time permitting, tell your partner whether you waste viel, wenig or keine Zeit im Internet.
      • Zeit verschwenden = to waste time
      • Was tun Sie im Internet, was nicht produktiv ist? Wie viel Zeit verbringen Sie damit?
      • This is a preview of the "Pandora" chapter
