Special topics in Teaching German as a Foreign Language

This course will introduce participants to four special topics in foreign language pedagogy. An introductory week (E. Steding), focusing on current methods in and approches to teaching German as a foreign language, will set the framework for our modules with specialists in the following fields:
1) Curriculum development towards advancedness (H. Byrnes)
2) Teaching AP German (J. Strecker)
3) Teaching writing, teaching literature: an integrative approach (J. Redmann)
4) DaF in Germany
Individual topics will then be synthesized during a week of debriefing and further exploration of their place in the dynamic field that is foreign language pedagogy in the US and beyond (E. Steding).

A course reader will be made available.*
