Product Description
"Since thou art not sure of a minute, throw not away an hour." Benjamin Franklin (American Founding Father ~ 1706 - 1790)


Here is a clear, concise explanation of the use of du / ihr / Sie in German with background information on how these forms used to exist in the English language - as in Benjamin Franklin's quote using 'thou' - but have disappeared over time.


I show this on the overhead projector, having a student read each point out loud, then point no. 19 is a practice exercise to be done orally in class.


Included here are:

1) An overhead explanation of background information and when to use du or ihr or Sie plus an oral practice activity

2) Hausaufgaben 1 ~ A ready-to-use homework assignment to practice the difference in these forms of address

3) An answer key for Hausaufgaben 1

4) Hausaufgaben 2 ~ A ready-to-use homework assignment to reinforce the difference in these forms of address

5) An answer key for Hausaufgaben 2

6) A test on using these two forms of address appropriately

7) An answer key for the test.


Everything is classroom-ready to make your job easy. (15 pages)



* EXPANSION ACTIVITY *
Andrew Bossom, an Englishman living in Germany, has some interesting videos on life in Germany.

Here is one called 'You, you and you'.


* 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.'
