NEW Primary German - Early Years

The AGTV is purchasing puppets for this course, which can be used by teachers with limited to advanced skills in German with limited time for German. All elements of the course can be downloaded free from the website: whyteboard materials, song (sung and karoake and text), teacher's handbook) for Band 1 - Making a flying start with German, and  Band 2 - Getting a grip on German. More materials are being developed to continue the course.

NEW Readers and Stories

 

Teaching Ideas for Eurovision 2015

A few years ago, Melissa Bond from South Australia shared her ideas for using Eurovision in the classroom. The AGTV has revised and updated these materials for Eurovision 2015 being hosted in Wien after Conchita Wurst's win in 2014.

The materials are for A1 level students. If teachers have any further ideas, please forward to share.

Languages Online & EAL Resources

The Victorian government's Languages Online is a curriculum tool that has so much more than just online language learning activities for beginners. There are several tools to support teachers planning and teaching languages: Game Makers, Comprehension Task Maker, Cartoon Story Maker, LOTE Rubric Maker and Cross-curriculum toolkit.

Teaching Strategies for English as an Additional language naturally relate to all teachers of languages.

 

AGTV Sharing of Materials

This website is a comprehensive portal to online resources in a digital world, a service provided by the AGTV.

The AGTV occasionally produces curriculum materials and always has a supply of promotional materials for sale from our Goethe Boutique.

Materials are routinely shared at AGTV PDs, Network meetings and Conferences. In the past few years, a CD of materials from presenters at the Victorian State Conference is sent to delegates completing the online evaluation survey.

Here are some examples of materials shared through the AGTV.  Please acknowledge the source if you use them.

 

Victorian Teachers of German

We are fortunate to have many creative teachers in our ranks who are wiling to share their ideas and experiences.

If you have an open access resource to share, please forward the link and/or consider presenting at a conference.

Goethe-Institut weltweit

Materials and ideas are developed and supported by the Goethe-Institut throughout the world. Many of the challenges faced in other English-speaking countries are shared by Australian teachers of German. Their materials are therefore useful for our situation. And the very existence of Goethe-Institutes and networks throughout the world provide substantial evidence of German as a language of global importance.

PROTOCOLS FOR KOORIE EDUCATION IN VICTORIA

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture has existed in this land for around 50,000 years. The uniqueness of these cultures and the wisdom and knowledge embedded in them, are things to be highly valued by all Australians. To this end, these protocols seek a way to protect the integrity of these cultural expressions and a way in which all Australians can engage respectfully and feel connected to this identity.

Protocols and principles for working with Victorinan Koorie communities:

Ideas for Intercultural Understanding

Researchers for a DFG project at the Heidelberg Collaborative Research Centre "Ritual Dynamics" want to find out what meaning the rituals have in a particular culture: can in fact differing rituals from far-removed cultures even be compared with one another, and should they even be rendered comparable?
