German 3

UC Scout World Language courses are intended for high school students. Each UC Scout World Language course is based on the themes of Global Challenges, Beauty and Aesthetics, Families and Communities, Personal and Public Identities, Contemporary Life, and Science and Technology. UC Scout World Language courses are standards and proficiency-based, weaving the California World Languages Standards of Communication (Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational), Cultures, and Connections with the ACTFL World-Readiness Standards Comparisons and Communities into each level of instruction. Conversational practice is a requirement in World Language courses. To meet this expectation, students will meet with their instructor, via Zoom, for a total of three sessions throughout the term. These conversations, called "Interpersonal Communication Assignments," allow students the opportunity to engage in spontaneous discussions in the target language with immediate support and feedback.

Course topics include education, plans for the future, diversity, feelings and value systems, historical and economic influences, cultural expressions, and hypothetical situations in the past and future tenses. Both semesters of this course introduce students to economically and historically important cities, pets and their care, subcultures, the senses, differing abilities, advertising, school systems, careers, personal priorities, astrological signs, identity, workplace behavior, artists, parts of literature, movie awards, values, social priorities, cultural diversity, emotions, wildlife, and fairy tales. This class is almost entirely in German.
