*Call for Proposals: American Association of Teachers of German / American
Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages joint annual conference - New
Orleans, November 16-18, 2018*

*Letting Go of the Textbook in Second-Year College German Courses*

Many faculty express dissatisfaction with commercial textbooks for
second-year college German: they are expensive, difficult to tailor to
diverse groups of learners, and offer few opportunities for extensive
reading or project-based learning. This session invites proposals from
faculty who have gone textbook-free and created literacy-oriented thematic
units for second-year college German courses (on themes such as "Heimat,"
"Sustainability," or "War and Peace"). Ideally, such units integrate
authentic materials, grammar instruction, all three communicative modes,
and innovative assessments.

Send a short description (250 words) for a 15-minute presentation by
January 5, 2018 to the session organizer Jennifer Redmann:
