Level:

Made in Germany for U.S. schools, Portfolio Deutsch actively involves students in their own learning. The performance descriptors at the end of each chapter help students to identify and articulate what they can do and motivate them to reflect on their own learning. With instructions and grammar explanations in English, students can jump immediately into practice with a wealth of activities and exercises.Grammar is embedded in context, and students learn to connect structures with meaning. Listening comprehension, pronounciation, and grammar exercises are presented both as distinct practice and as integrated activites, making them authentic and engaging. 

 

Content: 

Students begin communicating on day one with a focus on self-expression, starting with introductions, speaking about oneself, one's family, friends, and immediate environment. Students then brach out into sports, the internet, clothing, etc. Texts and dialogues increase in complexity and sophistication and entice students to venture out into the world of German on their own. 

 

Structure (divided into two sections): 

  • "Classwork" introduces each topic, vocabulary, and structures in the context of the given chapter. The material is practiced in individual, paired, and group activities with various audio components. 
  • "My Portfolio" provides exercises that mirror the activities in "Classwork" and reinforce the material through additional practice with vocabulary and structures. The exercises correlate with the Language Portfolio (student self-assessments), which helps students to make the connection between effort and achievement.
