Meets MWF 11:00AM-12:00PM BUR 232

Description:
German 301 is designed to teach graduate students from other departments how to read German for their own research purposes.  During the course, German grammar is presented systematically, together with exercises designed to practice translating the grammatical features that have just been learned.

DAILY ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED!

Textbooks:
Jannach, Hubert and Richard Alan Korb. German for Reading Knowledge.  5th ed. (required)

For your work, a good dictionary will be indispensable.  The following dictionaries are recommended:
HarperCollins German College Dictionary, 2nd ed., ISBN 0062708171
Collins German Unabridged Dictionary, 4th ed.,  ISBN 0062702351

GRADING:

•    Participation and attendance:     20%
•    Vocabulary and Grammar Quizzes:     30%
•    Hand-in homework:             20%
•    Translation project:            30%


PARTICIPATION AND ATTENDANCE: Your attendance and participation are essential for your success.  You need to be present in order to ask questions, to get answers to  those questions, and to diagnose where you have gaps to fill. Your questions help the instructor assess how to teach the class. Only unavoidable absences will be excused.  Students are responsible for the material covered in the class they missed. In the case of more than three unexcused absences, a grade of zero will be assigned for “participation and attendance” in the course.

HOMEWORK AND ASSIGNMENTS:  Daily assignments of grammar and translation exercises.  You should spend one to two hours preparation time for each hour of class time.  Students should write out all translations in a spiral or loose-leaf notebook, leaving every other line blank as to have space for writing in corrections. For hand-in homework, typed submissions (also to be double-spaced) are preferred and may be required of students with handwriting illegible to the instructor.

TRANSLATION PROJECT: Students will find a text from their field to translate during the semester. Your instructor will help you select a text to make sure it is appropriate for your level of proficiency. Texts should be between 1,000 and 1,500 words long (≈ 4-6 double-spaced letter format pages) and may be book reviews, excerpts from scholarly books or articles, or primary sources. Individual meetings will be scheduled during regular class time to discuss any problems and to monitor progress. By the end of the process students should have produced an idiomatic translation of a text in their field and will be graded on the basis of how complete, idiomatic, fluid and accurate it is.

PREREQUISITES:  Graduate standing.    NO AUDITORS are allowed in GER 301.

GER 301 is offered on a CREDIT/NO CREDIT basis (a score of 70% or above is required to pass).

NOTE:  Check with your individual departments regarding language requirements.  The Department of Germanic Studies does not set guidelines for individual degree requirements.

Description:

The course is designed to cover vocabulary and improve the students’ basic facility with spoken and written German. It helps them to participate fully in classes where German is the language of instruction. Several methods of vocabulary building lead the students to an active control of the language and ease in expressing themselves in German. Review of grammar will be limited to specific points requested by class members  Tests will be given at bi- or tri-weekly intervals.  There is no final exam for this course.

 

The class period uses a core lesson plan (see syllabus) that I hope will serve everyone's needs and provide a consistent, predictable approach that allows students to prepare for class.  I request that you take notes in class on key words and related concepts. I may collect these notes occasionally at the end of class hours and return them next hour with notations about anything you missed or misunderstood.

Textbooks:

Class package (Paradigm).

Recommended: any good German-English Dictionary or Wahrig: Deutsches Wörterbuch.

 

Homework and Assignments

For the assigned sections, learn the vocabulary and complete all fill-in exercises so they can be covered quickly in class. A conversation class by nature is less structured and more spontaneous than a grammar class. Still you try to anticipate what you would like to say in class. It may be necessary to deviate from this syllabus, but we will follow the chronology.

GER 328 • Advanced German Grammar

37460 • Spring 2009
Meets TTH 2:00PM-3:30PM JES A303A

Course Description:

German 328 provides students with the opportunity to develop their understanding of and ability to use German grammar. The course reviews basic grammatical structures in German that students likely encountered in earlier coursework (e.g., past tense forms, adjective endings), as well as introduces them to new grammatical concepts (e.g., extended attributes, nominalizations).

The course uses a content-based instructional approach to language learning. Through engaging with content material in German, students will be able to observe language in use and, importantly, have opportunities to practice grammatical structures in real, meaningful contexts. Three interconnected topics related to contemporary youth in German society (e.g., protest culture, military and civil service, and changes in the university structure) serve as the backdrop for class discussions and writing assignments. Additionally, students will have the chance to explore aspects of German grammar specific to their own individual interests and needs through a semester-long learning portfolio. 

The course prepares students for advanced coursework in German literature and culture, as well as study in a German-speaking country. With this goal in mind, students are expected to take greater initiative in actively participating in class discussions than at the beginning or intermediate levels of language instruction.

Prerequisites: Students must have completed second-year German at UT (GER 612) or have earned credit for second-year German through a placement exam, AP exam, or transfer credit in order to enroll in German 328.

 

Texts:

Rankins & Wells, Handbuch zur deutschen Grammatik. Wiederholen und Anwenden, 6th edition (2016), available at the campus bookstore. Additional texts and handouts will be distributed in class or posted on the course management site.

Description:

This course has two central goals. The first is to introduce you to several core and controversial issues in contemporary Germany and the ways in which these topics are discussed there. To this end we will read and/or listen to a wide range of material (film, music, poetry, news reports, and print media) that relates to several major themes in post-wall German society, politics, and culture. The second goal of the course is to provide you the opportunity to improve your written and spoken German. Course assignments will help you to expand your active vocabulary, increase your grammatical accuracy in using basic structures, and use more advanced grammatical structures to increase the linguistic register at which you can produce German. We will practice these elements in writing and in informal interaction (dialogues, conversations, role-playing) before you use them in exams and formal presentations.

Objectives
:
By the end of this semester you should be able to:
• compose short written essays in German with a high degree of grammatical accuracy, a varied vocabulary, and in a formal register;
• participate in day-to-day verbal interactions in German using colloquial phrasing and in more complex discussions with fluency and sophistication;
• understand and comment on primary sources about contemporary Germany; and demonstrate a solid grasp of issues central to current events.

Texts/Readings:
All required material is available online or via Canvas. Students will be expected to print out most completed assignment sheets and bring them to class. The grammar book for GER 328 (Handbuch zur deutschen Grammatik, any edition) is highly recommended.

GER 343C • Contemporary German Civilizatn

38495 • Spring 2008
Meets TTH 2:00PM-3:30PM JES A303A

Description:

This course follows the radical changes in German politics, society, culture, and literature during the twentieth century. Its goal is to improve your understanding of the interplay between the forces of modernization on the one hand and modernism in the arts on the other. In terms of politics and society we discuss the events leading up to World War I and its impact on Germany, including the Revolution of 1918 and political developments of the Weimar Republic. We consider the society and racial ideology of National Socialism and the origins and course of World War II followed by the post-war occupation of Germany, the development of two German states (the FRG and the GDR), and the process of German unification. Alongside this material we engage with the significant literary and cultural shifts that took place during this century including: fin-de-siècle literature, Expressionism, and Dadaism; cabaret and Neue Sachlichkeit of the 1920s; the emergence of German film; Nazi control of cultural production and works of political exile; and, finally, the impact of a divided nation on the cultural and literary output in the post-war era.

Materials for this class consist of readings and films. Assignments range from daily preparation and participation in class discussions (including organized debates) to quizzes, essay papers, and written exams. It presumes a sixth-semester language ability (i.e. completion of GER 328 and 331L) and is structured to build on the skills acquired in those classes in a systematic way to prepare students for more advanced work in German seminars. We will read texts that were written for native speakers of German and are not glossed or simplified. As a result we will need to work on comprehending complicated grammatical structures, such as indirect discourse (subjunctive I), passive voice, and extended modifiers. Students will be expected to acquire and use new vocabulary relevant to the course topics.

 

Course Objectives

By the end of this semester students should be able to:

  • define and explain key social and political issues and events of the 20th-century
  • analyze and compare literary works within their social, cultural, and historical context
  • orally present diverse perspectives regarding an historical problem or dilemma
  • compose interpretive essays in German with good organization, a high degree of grammatical accuracy, and a varied vocabulary.

 

Required texts:

Geschichtsbuch 4: Die Menschen und ihre Geschichte in Darstellungen und Dokumenten (Berlin: Cornelsen); ISBN 3-464-64204-6.
