Still Here (sort of)

This is really just a quick post to say that I'm still around.  I've been busy the past few months because I was pregnant, I'm still busy because I'm on maternity leave, BUT... I still love teaching and want to help out other German teachers, so I will start writing again soon (it's surprisingly hard to type with a newborn in one arm...).

If you're following me on TPT, I did put up a few new activities over the summer and plan on adding more.  If you've left a comment recently, I will reply to them ASAP!  I'm still a little behind but am working on it.

I also want to note that although I am a German teacher, I am also certified to teach French, Latin and Math 7-12.  My hope is to include some entries that are specific to some of those other content areas that I teach.  So even though this blog is focused on helping German teachers (there are so few of us...), I want to talk about strategies that can be used in other content areas and teaching in general.

Upcoming topics:

  • Answer Bank (activity idea for Math)
  • IPAs: Integrated Performance Assessments (which I will be doing with my German 3/4 class this year)
  • Mosaics (activity for Latin)
  • Model EU (activity for Globalisierung in upper level classes)
  • AP Student Feedback (I've only taught AP German, but strategies pertain to other languages)
  • Product Reviews
