Teaching Materials for Teachers of German

With Germany’s most important national election, the „Bundestagswahl”, coming up on September 24th of 2017, the Goethe-Institute Boston has developed a set of teaching materials to serve as a tool for teachers who wish to deal with this topic in their class. You can find information about the materials, the work sheets and an answer key as PDF-documents on this website.

The tasks and corresponding sources are predominantly in German and are catered to students with an A2 – B1 command of the language. The sources and work sheets no. 2 and 4 are available both in English and in German. The English version is designed to allow students with very limited knowledge of German to engage with the subject of German elections. In collecting and developing these materials, the Goethe-Institut Boston has mainly drawn on existing sources and materials of others, the details of which may be found in the bibliography.
