Workshop: Spiele und Teamgeist: Oral Peer Feedback in the World Language Classroom in the U.S.
At a university in the U.S. a space was created where beginning and intermediate level German language learners could provide each other oral feedback in a more relaxed setting, namely during an in-class test review game. Therein it was evident how the game proved to be a catalyst for students to create a sense of Teamgeist (team spirit) with one another in the classroom. Students also began to push each other to prepare more for future test review games and thereby more students were better prepared for the correlating tests. The game I created for my students will be broken down and demonstrated and participants in the audience will then be able to play the game against each other during this brief workshop. This workshop will be beneficial for those teaching German as a second/foreign language.
