"You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on my windscreen that said 'Parking Fine'." Tommy Cooper (British comedian ~ 1921 - 1984)
Everyone has heard of the Autobahn - that German superhighway with no speed limit
Well, that's not quite true.
On certain stretches there is
a speed limit and the Modern Marvels documentary on 'The Autobahn' explains that and so much more about this 'the sky's the limit' driving experience.
Included here are:
1. A 12-page introductory overhead in English on driving and getting a license in Germany
to be shown before viewing
'Modern Marvels ~ The Autobahn'
so that students can better appreciate the film.
2. A handout summary for absent students
in case you want to use these as culture questions on a quiz or test.
3. A Film * Fragen sheet with twenty follow-along questions in English
that go with the film.
4. An answer key for the questions
5. A vocabulary list in German and English with parts of the exterior of a car as a homework assignment
6. A vocabulary list in German and English with parts of the interior of a car as a homework assignment
7. A 'Mein Traumauto' project with instructions and a rubric
8. A multiple-choice quiz on the parts of a car
9. An answer key for the quiz
These can also be used as enrichment to a topic or as a substitute lesson plan (or emergency lesson plan).
Having students select from multiple choice answers allows
more time for their eyes to stay on the film and not spend it
looking down writing out answers and, thus, not miss
important moments in the film.
This is a nice introduction to this legendary superhighway and driving in Germany. (26 pages)
