Deutsch 102 Stunde 47

Outline plan:

  • Informal activity before class begins: Practice with one or two of the “Sprechtest 2” index cards
    • Find these on Canvas > Files > Oral Tests
  • Aktivität 22, 23 and 25 [Preview of tonight’s reading assignment; also assigned for homework!].
    • Notes for Aktivität 25:
      • Beitritt = joining
      • By “das zweite deutsche Reich,” Vorsprung means the period from 1871-1918, so they’re looking for 1871 for that. Normally, no one really talks about “das zweite deutsche Reich.” Some obscure historian coined this term in the 1920s, predicting that a third reich would follow, and the Nazis got very excited about this terminology.
      • For die Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft in Deutschland, list BOTH years found in the text!
  • Video:simpleshow erklärt den Fall der Berliner Mauer
  • Video:JFK: Ich bin ein Berliner
    • Smartasses will sometimes say that this means that Kennedy said he was a jelly donut (“ein Berliner”). This is a myth. Yes, technically the “ein” should be omitted when stating one’s city or country of origin – but in this case he was correct to include it for emphasis – and in any case no one would have misunderstood what he meant!
  • Work with the vocab worksheet that was due today
    • Share Collocations/Examples/Mnemonics for Section A
