Niagara Falls, NY
This session will discuss approaches to teaching lexis in various current formats of and approaches to German language curricula - e.g., content-based instruction, high-frequency vocabulary, or open educational resource materials - in order to share contextual challenges and best practices. How do self-study techniques interface with the instructed curriculum? How do instructors utilize principles such as spaced repetition, frequency, or authentic examples inside or outside the classroom? What criteria drive glossing and definitional practices for textbook materials and additional textual/audio/visual materials? How do these practices and considerations influence or surface in assessment? These and other questions are welcome from instructors of German language, literature, and other topics taught in the target language.
