Product Description
"When I was in first grade, everyone made fun of my name … I think it's kind of a big name to hold up when you're nine years old. It seemed goofy." River Bottom (stage name River Phoenix) ~ (American actor ~ 1970 - 1993)


Did you know that there are laws in Germany that regulate how you may name your newborn baby?


Want to call your precious little boy Duke ?


Baby girl born in November and you want to call her Herbstwind ?


Think again if they're born in Germany. There are regulations about names like that.


The potential pitfalls a parent faces - Modenamen, embarrassing initials, awkward nicknames - are lessened with laws that have the future welfare of the baby at heart.


Here's another fascinating way to weave Culture into your instruction.


Several of the most important naming laws pertaining to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are explained here in English enhanced with pictures that you can show on your overhead projector. I like to have students read each point out loud to promote class discussion.


Included here are:

1. A 20-page overhead explaining in English some of the most important naming laws

2. A follow-up quiz

3. An answer key to the quiz

4. A handout summary of these laws for absent students

5. An overhead of German girls' names

6. An overhead of German boy's names



On the first day of class, I allow students to pick a German first name and that is how they are known in our class. I read all the girls' names out loud so students can hear how they sound, then randomly call on the girls to select a name only if they want to.


Then I say all the boys' names out loud and randomly call on the boys to select a name if they want one. Since I was the only German teacher, that is the name they had for each year they were in my German class.


This helped make German class a little bit special and I only ever had positive feedback from students on this (probably because they had a choice to select a name or not).



Everything here is classroom-ready to make your job easy. (28 pages)

* OF SPECIAL NOTE *
I have created my products as Word documents because that is how I use them. They are unlocked so teachers can change vocabulary words or modify things if they wish.

If you prefer a different format for the overhead, below are some suggestions, however the pictures may have to be inserted separately.

To Make A Slide Show In ActivInspire
If you use ActivInspire, you can save the Word document as a pdf (this is easily done with the newer versions of Word), then you can simply import the pdf to ActivInspire and have a document for that format.

To Make A Slide Show In PowerPoint
If you prefer to use the PowerPoint format, you can easily convert a Word document to a PowerPoint.

This link explains it clearly: 'Creating A PowerPoint From A Word Document.'
