How can we make literature meaningful to our students? Based on short literary texts ranging from "traditional“ to "modern" genres, this webinar will discuss benefits and principles of working with literature in the German language classroom. You will get to know not only several short literary texts from or about Austria, but also activities that focus on different levels, skills, and communication modes. Although the materials are geared towards learners between 12 and 18, they can easily be adapted for adult learners. 

Julia Ruck is a PhD student in German and Second Language Acquisition at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research interests focus on literacy-based approaches in foreign-language-teaching, teaching culture with film, and contemporary Austrian literature and culture. She has taught German as a Foreign Language in Austria, Russia, Uruguay, and the US and organizes teacher-training seminars on behalf of Kultur und Sprache (Austrian Federal Ministry of Education and Women’s Affairs).
