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: [log in to unmask].
