Pedagogy Projects

All participants will devote part of each week to projects adapting current and authentic materials for classroom use, including the use of new technologies. The use of new technologies will be coordinated by Donna Van Handle, Professor of German at Mount Holyoke College, and will include participation in Prof. Van Handle's TELI: Technology-Enriched Language Instruction: LEARNING ABOUT THE INTERNET project, a description of which follows:

Target Group and Purpose:

The TELI (Internet) web site is designed as a course for the professional development of K-12 teachers of German, for graduate students of German who are studying to become teachers of German, and for German teaching assistants. It offers an introduction to the Internet, as well as suggestions for using Internet resources in teaching and for developing teaching units using Internet resources within the framework offered by the "Standards Project." This module thus seeks to combine theory and practice so that teachers can begin to use the standards to describe and design curricula for their own instructional situations.

Structure of the TELI (Internet) Web Site:

The Table of Contents of the TELI (Internet) module is the primary navigation tool through the web site: return there for all shifts in course. Otherwise, screens are linked with "live" (i.e., linked) navigational arrows at the end of each section of each unit, thus allowing you to navigate correctly within the web site.

The TELI (Internet) web site is divided into six units. Within each unit there are links to exercises and to "Reflections," the discussion forum for the course. The module is designed so that course participants will navigate through the web site as directed by the navigational arrows at the end of each section of each unit.

Finally, a bibliography of selected sources as well as a listing of relevant web sites are included, offering additional research and theoretical treatments and discussions of the topics presented in each of the units. Also, a tutorial entitled Learn HTML in 20 Minutes! is available for course participants to consult so that they may learn how to write their own web pages.
