TOP is looking for new lesson plans to complement the “Ransomed to the West: The Lippmann Stasi File” video (see above) which was recently created as part of a TOP Mini-Grant project. Educators are invited to create and submit a lesson plan based on this video. TOP will select appropriate lesson plans and will feature them along with the video on our website!
Criteria: Lesson plans that use this video can be for any grade level or subject. Each lesson plan should have a connection to current issues in Germany and North America and should include an extension involving online exchange with a German class. We envision that this subtitled video will work best with middle and high school students, but we are open to receiving lesson plans for all grade levels. You are also welcome to create a lesson plan for a grade level or class you do not currently teach.
Formatting: Lesson plans should follow the format laid out in the TOP Unit Authorship document, available on our website (see box to the right).
Submission Process: Please submit your completed lesson plan as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: Lesson plans will be accepted on a rolling basis.
