13 Jahre Deutsche Vereinigung: A Sample Project for Advanced Learners of German
This group project is an "inquiry project", in which students research in-depth the continuous process of unification in Germany. Students' research develops from a text (a speech), which they read initially. In this speech, several key issues surrounding German unification are raised, which can be transformed into project questions or sub-topics worth investigating. After identifying key concepts, students select a set of sub-topics to be researched and do so in small groups. The product, which they develop is a written report on their sub-topic and an oral presentation.
