Traveling Around Germany!
In conjunction with Staff Appreciation Week, we are featuring student work as a daily post on TL2014.org. Today, we feature Salisbury High School and Mrs. Krista Spradlin, German teacher along with Mrs. Robin Burns, Library Media Teacher. Thank you Mrs. Spradlin and Mrs. Burn for sharing this story!
This marking period German teacher, Mrs. Krista Spradlin, and Library Media Teacher, Mrs. Robin Burns, worked with German III and German IV students to create movies for a unit on travel. The students were tasked with planning a vacation to a region of Germany that interested them and then researching the sites visited using specific websites and subscription databases.
The German IV students’ movies were the culmination of the study of various regions and were based upon past units of vocabulary and grammar. Students worked in pairs and conducted research on different tourist sites, then learned how to assemble their information in a movie spoken completely in German. They also had to find photos, maps, and charts to help tell their stories.
Students were able to work in the library and received individual support from the school library media teacher, Mrs. Robin Burns, and building technology coach, Miss Jennifer Brinson, on research techniques, proper MLA citations, iMovie editing, and the use of green screen to embed themselves into photographs.
All of the information and digital resources for students are located on the high school library LibGuide.
