This activity is perfect to use around week 2 or 3 of German I to review the chunks of language that students learn in those first few weeks - asking for name, age, where you're from, and how you're doing. This is a word doc, so feel free to adapt

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Most of my teaching experience has been in higher education - I've taught at the University of Illinois, the University of Texas at Austin, and, most recently, Vassar College. However, I also taught for a year at a bilingual German-English secondary school. I've also performed (and still work on) original research on second language reading development in beginning German learners, cultural learning, and curriculum development. In addition to teaching, I've also worked as a course coordinator, where I led teams of other teachers in designing teaching materials and tests/quizzes, and have collaborated on larger materials design projects.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I want all of my students to get something out of class that they can take into their lives - whether it's being able to write more clearly, an appreciation for other ways of thinking, knowing how to speak/write/understand more German, or expanding their toolbox of teaching strategies. I'm an energetic and caring teacher and I like to plan activities that require students to be creative, learn something new, and, if applicable, gain deeper insight into themselves and into the target culture(s). My approach to foreign language pedagogy is heavily influenced by communicative language teaching and content-based language teaching.
