When it comes to learning a world language, there’s no better way than to immerse students in the culture of the target language. That’s where the language comes alive and provides the depth in which students can explore, discover and understand on their own what makes the language what it is.
We believe extending the classroom to the real-world and giving students the opportunity to learn experientially is the absolute best way to empower students to become global citizens. That’s why we’ve enlisted the help of retired world languages teacher and ACIS Academic Travel Advisor Nicolette Miller to create these 6 Lesson Plans based on The New Bloom’s Taxonomy for World Language Instruction. She uses an Online Tour of Neuschwanstein Castle in the Bavaria region of Germany as the subject matter for 6 different lesson plans.
This guide is for German teachers who wish to make their language instruction and cultural lessons about the target language come alive through virtual tourism in the world language classroom.
Taking an online virtual tour of Neuschwanstein Castle provides a lesson in 19th-century German architecture, an opportunity for German students to use the target language, and to learn about the role of the castle in German history while using Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational communication.
These 6 Lesson Plans engage students in all 3 types of communication according to the ACTFL Standards:
- Interpersonal Communication
- Interpretive Communication
- Presentational Communication
While experiencing Neuschwanstein Castle in person is a life-changing experience, we hope exposing your students to German culture via these lesson plans gives your students the inspiration to take the leap into exploring Neuschwanstein Castle in the real world.
