Project Grade

Please see the requirements for each product listed (click here for the Skit rubric, Game rubric, and the Poster rubric). I expect every student to be able to earn a "B" by following these minimum requirements. In order to earn an "A-range" grade, more than this minimum is expected in your product.

To Create a Skit:


You must perform the skit along with no more than two other students, using props and without using note cards/script copies. A typed copy of the script must be turned in completed one day prior to the presentation, and should include at least 15 lines each. In order to be considered for credit, each "line" must consist of at least a three-word sentence. The skit will be video-taped.
  • The script is to be memorized.
  • Lines are to be clearly spoken ("delivered") in German.
  • All players are to move during the presentation ("staging" & "blocking").
  • Some attention is given to costumes (although these are not elaborate).
  • Use of props is appropriate and well-delivered.
  • Scenes are clear and sequential (the skit has beginning-middle-end).
  • Actors all support each other, and participate equally and sufficiently.

To Create a Game:


You should work with only one other person to create your game(s). If you create a classroom competition for German (e.g. Jeopardy), you may be asked to produce more than one "round" of the game.
  • The game board/pieces should be legible and well-made.
  • The labels are clear.
  • The board needs to be large enough for all players to play.
  • The pieces are to be muli-colored.
  • Cards, spinners, tokens, dice are included (if required).
  • Rules (in English) are easy to follow.
  • If you're making up rulles and play for a new game, try to make a clear winner emerge as a result of play. Non-competitive games may be permitted (just ask).
  • All players are able to participate equally, during game play.
  • See the Rubric Here

To Create a Poster:


You should work alone to create a poster on poster board. It must include multiple colors and clear labels. A rough drawing must be submitted on regular-sized paper, prior to completion of the actual poster.
  • The poster is to be made on large size poster-board (not supplied).
  • It has clear labels in German.
  • Some "white space" surrounds the picture & words (It's not "crammed full").
  • The poster is colored and visually appealing.
  • The poster includes the Germn words for body-parts.
  • The Poster includes (possibly) injuries, actions, illnesses or remedies associated with the body part. These words are displayed near the picture of the body part itself.
