Drama Pedagogy for Foreign Language Teaching and Learning
Drama Pedagogy provides foreign language students with intensive and lasting learning experiences through techniques from the performing arts. The hands-on seminar introduces drama pedagogy activities and familiarizes participants with their use. The seminar content can be tailored to conversational practice, literary texts, grammar, or the teaching of culture. Keywords: Literatur im Unterricht

Drama Pedagogy for the Teaching and Learning of Foreign Language Grammar
In drama grammar, techniques from actor training help create fictitious situations that raise learners’ awareness of grammatical phenomena. Grammar is experienced not only cognitively but also personally, emotionally, socially, and kinesthetically. The seminar introduces drama grammar teaching phases and shows participants how to integrate them into their daily teaching. Keywords: Literatur im Unterricht, Teaching Strategies

Improv Theater for Foreign Language Teaching and Learning
This hands-on seminar introduces the basic techniques of improvisational theater and how to effectively use them in the foreign language classroom. Participants will be familiarized with various activities from improv theater for vocabulary building, conversation and interaction. Keywords: Teaching Strategies

Bilingual Novels for Adolescent Readers
The bilingual book “Mensch, be careful!” (Rösler/O’Sullivan) is great reading for learners in their second or third year of German. The seminar will show how a bilingual text can enhance students’ willingness and motivation to read, lower their anxiety, and increase their ability to understand from context. Keywords: Kinder- und Jugendliteratur

Fine Arts and Foreign Language Learning
To be able to see and observe is called the “fifth skill.” Seeing always happens in combination with listening, speaking, reading, or writing. This workshop focuses on various ways to use fine arts (pictures, sculptures) as starting points for intense and diverse verbal exchanges, reading assignments, or creative writing activities. Keywords: Kunst im Unterricht, Teaching Strategies
