German, Oral Presentation, Kroeker, Dec. 10

Present on Dec. 10
G-2 Oral Project
This presentation will be worth 10% of the G-2 Test. Students will present an oral project with the following items (not
necessarily in this order):
1) a greeting
2) asking or answering someone’s age
3) asking or answering the time
4) asking or answering where someone is from
5) asking or answering someone’s name
6) a description of a person
7) asking or answering how someone is doing
8) a good-bye
Students may work alone or in groups. If working in groups, each member of the group must cover each of the 8
items. Students may look off pictures to remind them of their stories (as we often do in class), but students may not
use a written script.
Ideas for presentations: skits (with props), puppets, video, storybook, interview, day-time talk show, etc.
