German Restaurant Play

Flipped Classroom

This lesson plan outlines my strategies for implementing a flipped classroom into my units. I made a short
video that explained to students what modal verbs are and how they are used in German. Students watched the video
on Youtube and completed the note sheet I gave them the class before. The note sheet was to help them follow along
and also to show me that they watched the video. The intention for the flipped classroom was instead of me
presenting the grammar lesson in class, students learn the grammar at home so that we can spend more time in class
using the grammar in novel situations. This also gave students the opportunity to review the grammar at any later
point during the semester.
In this lesson, students reviewed the grammar rules about modal verbs together and then we practiced them
using the four learning strategies: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students first wrote a short journal and
traded it with a partner to read and correct. Then they start using the modal verbs to act out a restaurant scenario
with their small groups. Afterwards, students took a quiz on the unit vocabulary.

Flipped Classroom

I. Class Information
a. German 1/ 90 min
b. Prior Knowledge: Students watched a grammar video on modal verbs at home and
food vocabulary.
c. Purpose of Lesson: Practice the modal verbs using conversational German and begin
Restaurant vocabulary.
d. Other Information: This is the first time I am trying a flipped classroom and will
use todays results as to how I may proceed/alter the arrangement. Students watched a
grammar video on modal verbs at home and filled in the blanks on a note sheet.
e. Anticipated Problems: If not enough students watched the video or were unable to
watch the video, then the flipped classroom will not work. If some students did not
watch the video, I will work with them more closely throughout class.
