This activity encourages students to think deeply about the meaning and different aspects of the term "Heimat" to compare different definitions and develop their own. As this may be the first time students meet on Elluminate, the tutor notes also include suggestions on how to familiarize students with the medium.
Poems in German on the theme of "Heimat", to help students to explore the concept and how it changes under different historical circumstances.
A matching activity,to help students broaden vocabulary and develop a varied writing style. This is useful for both TMAs 1 and the final project. The interactive version can be used as a whole-group warm-up or assessment activity. A computer and data projector are required for face-to-face tutorials. It is not suitable for Elluminate tutorials. This activity was made with Hot Potatoes software, which can be downloaded free of charge from http://hotpot.uvic.ca/index.php The print version works well as a pairwork activity. Print the sheets(1 set for every two or three students),cut them into separate cards and distribute one set to each pair or group. Many students find working with cards much easier than matching items on a printed page.
