Lehrpraxis sammeln: Englisch
Seminar für Englische Philologie, Fachdidaktik,
Prof. Dr. Carola Surkamp
Shakespeare is very prominent in advanced English language classes. In order to understand his texts knowledge about the historical and cultural background is helpful. But what knowledge do pupils need? And how can they gain this knowledge, i.e. through which materials, media and methods? One approach is to design a learning circle for pupils (Stationenlernen), which allows them to work on various texts and tasks autonomously and cooperatively.
Participants will research materials and develop tasks for different stations of such a learning circle about the life, work and times of William Shakespeare. The tasks will be presented and discussed within the course and taught in a workshop for pupils at the Y-Lab on one or two days during the semester (date will be announced later).

A global simulation is a task-based teaching method which gives learners the opportunity to experience and use the foreign language in a fictitious but real-life scenario. By making use of different creative methods, material and media an authentic space is created – this can for example be an island, a different country, a village, a zoo, a circus, a house, a company, or in our case an award ceremony in Hollywood, – in which the participants take over different roles and master various communicative situations and tasks.
In this course you will learn about the potential a global simulation has to offer for the context of foreign language learning. You will also learn how to plan and develop a global simulation based on a textbook unit on Hollywood and get the chance to put your ideas into practice. In cooperation with different secondary schools we will design and carry out a simulation project at the YLAB and invite 8th grade students to join us in this creative adventure. There, pupils will enter the foreign language context we designed for them, including a specific time and place and take over new identities. Following different rules and instructions they will interact with each other, read documents they may find, write notes to each other, solve problems, create and explore. The aim is that you, of course also in role, motivate and encourage the students to actively use the foreign language and support them in doing so. There will be a preparation at school prior to the simulation project. The simulation projects themselves will be carried out on a weekday morning (8.00-12.30). Both the preparation at school and the simulation project will be part of your internship (Note: You will not have to do another internship at a school.)
Moreover you will learn how to do your own research project during your internship including methods and instruments which will help you to answer the research question which we developed in the context of the course.
Enabling students to speak fluently and spontaneously is an important goal in the foreign language classroom. Yet, many teachers are facing questions of how to choose appropriate material, develop suitable tasks and activate all learners most effectively. This seminar aims at looking at the theory of speaking as a skill, examining different teaching approaches and methods and develop and discuss own teaching materials and learning tasks.
Participants will get the chance to develop micro-teaching units, which will be discussed within the seminar and taught in a workshop for pupils of a year 10. This workshop will take place at the Y-Lab on one day during the semester. The date is now set for January 18th 2017, 7:30am to 13:30pm. You will also need to sit in at least one double lesson in school to get to know the students. Their English classes take place Mondays (7th/8th period, each 2nd week) and Wednesdays (3rd/4th period).Please make sure that you can attend all dates set for the seminar and the workshop.
