PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"The test of good manners is to be able to put up pleasantly with bad ones." Wendell Willkie (American lawyer ~ 1892 - 1944)


Should you say 'Gesundheit' when someone sneezes ?

Is it polite to drink out of your soup bowl ?

What about that cryptic 'u.A.w.g.' ?


There are guidelines for good manners in Germany just as there are here in the US.


'Der Knigge', named after a man who died long before Emily Post was ever born, is the standard for good manners and etiquette in Germany.


Included here are:

* 24 items explained in English
* A true / false quiz
* An answer key for the quiz
* A summary sheet handout for absent students.


All the facts are colorfully illustrated and explained in English.


I show them on my overhead projector and ask a different student to read each point out loud to promote discussion.


Teaching manners is part of building good character and an essential component of getting along in school and in society.


Yes, even today, our students need to know that 'Manners Still Matter'. (30 pages)


* EXPANSION ACTIVITY *
Some delightful videos have been done by Andrew Bossom, an Englishman living in Germany. He has a refreshing and fun way of looking at things, such as ~

'Ten Things About Germany'.



* 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, you may have to insert the pictures by hand.


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.'
