Course outline
–
Use the following table to organize the topics to be taught in the course. If you need to include topics that cover other requirements you have to teach (for example,
national syllabus), make sure that you do so in an integrated way, but also differentiate them using italics. Add as many rows as you need.
–
This document should not be a day-by-day accounting of each unit. It is an outline showing how you will distribute the topics and the time to ensure that students
are prepared to comply with the requirements of the subject.
–
This outline should show how you will develop the teaching of the subject. It should reflect the individual nature of the course in your classroom and should not
just be a “copy and paste” from the subject guide.
–
If you will teach both higher and standard level, make sure that this is clearly identified in your outline.

IB Internal and external assessment requirements to be completed during the course
Briefly explain how and when you will work on them. Include the date when you will first introduce the internal and external assessment requirements, when they will be
due and how students will be prepared to complete them.
Each month, students will have at least one assessment in each of the test components: Paper 1 (Receptive Skills), Paper 2 (Written Productive Skills),
Written Assignment (Receptive and Written Productive Skills), Individual Oral and Interactive Oral (Productive, Interactive and Receptive Skills), and this
routine will begin immediately (August of Year One) with an early introduction and overview of the class expectations and goals. These frequent assessments
are formative and used for learning purposes (identifying strengths and weaknesses). At the end of each semester for Year One and Year Two (December
and May), students will be given a summative assessment in the five IB test components, and these tests, given over two weeks, will serve as their semester
exams. In order for the students to feel confident in facing the internal assessments, I will begin by modelling possible oral responses and vocabulary
consideration. And to prepare for the external assessment, we will engage in progressive group writing exercises (from teacher - whole group - small group individual).
4.
Links to TOK
You are expected to explore links between the topics of your subject and TOK. As an example of how you would do this, choose one topic from your course outline that
would allow your students to make links with TOK. Describe how you would plan the lesson.
Topic
Link with TOK (including description of lesson plan)
ToK: Linguaculture
Discussion of Linguaculture – what does it mean to “know” a language?
Gestures, body language, taboos, proximity, handholding, kissing, eye contact, grammar & syntax, subconscious expectations (frames) and
judgements.
ToK: Educational Reform
What educational changes are currently being made in Germany? Compare/contrast to American views on public school education.
Reform in the German Educational System: An Ongoing Process
ToK: Aphorismen und Sprüche.
Aphorismen und Sprüche. What can a collection of sayings tell you about a culture and their values? Quotations and discussion.
http://www.zitate.de/
5.
International mindedness
Every IB course should contribute to the development of international mindedness in students. As an example of how you would do this, choose one topic from your
outline that would allow your students to analyse it from different cultural perspectives. Briefly explain the reason for your choice and what resources you will use to
achieve this goal.
Topic
Contribution to the development of international mindedness (including resources you will use)
Social Relationships
Message Board: Students will be asked to examine the perspective of European students. What responsibilities do they take
upon themselves? What is their self-identity and how is it related to the culture in which they were raised? Specifically, what is
their approach to world issues? And how does the stance they take affect the future of their country? I want the students to
consider these questions and stay abreast of world news. Anytime they hear about or read something related to this line of
questioning, I would like them to bring in the article, post it on the message board, and write a short 100-word response to the
article. Students will also be asked to read the articles submitted by other students and write a short 100-word reply to their
classmate’s comments.
6.
Development of the IB learner profile
Through the course it is also expected that students will develop the attributes of the IB learner profile. As an example of how you would do this, choose one topic from
your course outline and explain how the contents and related skills would pursue the development of any attribute(s) of the IB learner profile that you will identify.
Topic
Contribution to the development of the attribute(s) of the IB learner profile
Global Issues
Reading a novel from an immigrant or minority point of view, studying environmental issues, and writing resumes support openminded, knowledgeable, and reflective communicators.
Open-minded -- Read choice of Yildiz heiβt Stern or Papa, Charly hat gesagt
Knowledgeable -- Text handling: receptive and productive. Read short articles about environmental concerns. Create a tip sheet along with 5 FAQs with
short responses.
Reflective -- Official Report – Written Assignment. Topic: Lebenslauf
