Shayan Youssef, Schülerin der German School campus hat am ersten Jugend debattiert Wettbewerb West in den USA mit jeweils drei anderen Schülern/Innen an Diskussionen und Debatten in Runde 1 zu Themen “Soll der Verkauf zuckerhaltiger Getränke und von Schokoriegeln in der Schule grundsächlich verboten werden?” Runde 2 “Sollen Plastiktüten verboten werden?” teilgenommen. Die Diskussionsrunden dauerten jeweils 25 Minuten.

Shayan belegte einen tollen 8. Platz. Glückwunsch!

Frau Schöneich , sowie andere Schulleiter der Sprachschulen waren als Juroren tätig. Unsere Deutschlehrerin Frau Roche hat am Sonntag als Juror teilgenommen.

Ehemalige Finalisten die auch schon am Bundesfinale in Berlin teilgenommen hatten, waren als Juroren aus Deutschland zugeschaltet. Sie haben über ihre Erfahrungen berichtet wie die Harmonie in dem Ablauf, Glücksmomente nach den Debatten, der Applaus der Zuschauer, die Anerkennung als schönes Erlebnis und vor allem dabei zu bleiben, auch wenn es mal nicht so gut laufen sollte.

Mrs. Maiss-Minkler (ZFA) and Mr. Ingo Matthias (ZfA) moderated the program. Mr. Matthias (ZfA) brought Jugend debattiert to the USA.
Frau Maiss-Minkler (ZFA) und Herr Ingo Matthias (ZfA). Ingo Matthias hat Jugend debattiert das erste Mal nach USA gebracht.

Die SchülerInnen haben über zehn Wochen hin mit Frau Maiss-Minkler und Herrn Matthias Jugend debattiert gelernt, geübt und getestet.

Dabei sollten die Schülerinnen und Schüler das Debattieren probieren: Sie probieren selbst aus, wie eine Debatte nach Regeln von Jugend debattiert auf einfachster Stufe abläuft.

Position beziehen: Sie lernen, aus einer Streitfrage einen konkreten Vorschlag zu entwickeln, ihn zu begründen und zu bewerten.

Aufeinander eingehen: Sie lernen, die Freie Aussprache einer Debatte so zu führen, dass jeder Beitrag den Gedanken eines Vorredners aufgreift. Sie lernen, Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen den Positionen zu erkennen und widerstreitende Werte und Interessen abzuwägen.

Schlüsse ziehen: Sie lernen, die Debatte in der Schlussrunde zusammenzufassen und den für sie wichtigsten Grund entschieden zu vertreten.

Voraussetzungen klären: Sie lernen, sich auf Debatten vorzubereiten, indem sie herausfinden und darstellen, was der Streitfrage zugrunde liegt und worauf sich Positionen stützen können.

Debattieren trainieren: Sie lernen, eine vollständige Debatte nach Regeln von Jugend debattiert zu führen und auszuwerten. Bei den Debatten kommt es darauf an, dass jeder schon in den Schulen lernt, wie und wozu man debattiert, und regelmäßig übt, auch selbst zu debattieren.

Es war eine tolle Erfahrung für die Schülerinnen und Schüler und sicher sind sie auch wieder im kommenden Schuljahr dabei und können auch ihre Mitschüler begeistern teilzunehmen.

Shayan Youssef, a student of the German School campus, participated in the first Youth Debate competition West in the USA with three other students. Each student in discussions and debates in round 1 on topics: “Should the sale of sugary drinks and candy bars be banned in principle at school?” and round 2 “Should plastic bags be banned?”. The discussion rounds lasted 25 minutes each.

Shayan scored a great 8th place. Congratulations!

Mrs. Schoeneich, as well as other principals of the language schools, served as jurors. Our German Teacher, Mrs. Roche, participated as a juror on Sunday. Our student, Sinead Roche, will participate on Sunday morning on the same topics.

Former finalists who had already participated in the national finals in Berlin were present as jurors from Germany. They reported experiences, harmony in the process, moments of happiness after the debates, the applause of the audience, the recognition as a beautiful experience, and above all, to stay with it even if it should not go so well.

Mrs. Maiss-Minkler (ZFA) and Mr. Ingo Matthias (ZfA). Mr. Matthias (ZfA) brought Jugend debattiert for the first time to the US.
Mrs. Maiss-Minkler (ZFA) and Mr. Ingo Matthias (ZfA). Mr. Matthias (ZfA) brought Jugend debattiert for the first time to the US.

The students practiced and tested Youth Debate with Mrs. Maiss-Minkler and Mr. Matthias over ten weeks. In the process, the students have asked to try out debating: They try out for themselves how a debate runs according to Youth Debate starts at the most simple level.

Taking a position: They learn to develop a concrete proposal from an issue in dispute, to justify it, and to evaluate it.

Responding to each other: They learn to conduct the free debate of debate so that each contribution takes up the thought of a previous speaker. You will learn to identify commonalities and differences between positions and to weigh conflicting values and interests.

Drawing Conclusions: They learn to summarize the debate in the final round and decisively argue the most critical case.

Clarifying preconditions: They learn to prepare for debates by identifying and presenting what underlies the disputed issue and what positions can be based on.

Practice debating: They learn to conduct and evaluate a whole debate according to Youth Debate rules.

With debates, everyone must learn how to debate and what it’s for a while they’re still in school and regularly practice discussing themselves.

It was an excellent experience for the students, and I am sure that they will participate again in the next school year and that they will be able to inspire their classmates to participate.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for being here this morning and we do not want to take too much of your time.

My Name is Ursula Schoeneich. I am the founder and Principal of the German school campus. With me is Frau Kerstin Roche and Frau Alexandra Wuerfler.

Once a student is enrolled in school, you become a member of it.
Our core curriculum is in accordance with the CEFR – Common European Framework of References for Languages as a guideline for Learning, Teaching, Assessments.

Its main aim is to provide a method of learning, teaching, and assessing which applies to all languages in Europe and is widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.

The European Framework Level is on our website. A1 – C1

”How do we teach German.”

https://www.germanschoolcampus.com/european-framework-level-a1-a2/

Our classes are structured in K/1st Grader-, 2nd Grader classes, Heritage speaker classes, Beginners of the German Language, Intermediate and Advanced German, AP German Language and Culture, High Advanced German class.

This gives the opportunity to grow into a Language assessment, get High School credit, receive Certificates, and Honors.

Our yearly curriculum is structured in accordance with the study books. We include special events like the German Reunification, we add short movies, speak about inventions and add Austria, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein as German-speaking countries.

We are a little bit limited with online classes right now rather than having action-oriented lessons with many activities in classroom settings.

We also teach German Culture in which we add to the following events in the calendar year, St.Martin, St. Nikolaus, Christmas, Fasching-Karneval, Easter Eggstravaganza.

I love to give students what they deserve especially when they work so hard in the extra afternoon hours or in between all their other classes, to learn German.

Therefore I founded the German school campus in 2015 and within these 5 years we reached ( I say we reached as there are also the teacher’s Frau Roche and Frau Wuerfler who create wonderful classes).

Tests-Exams in Spring 2021

ZfA A1 age 8 or 9 in March and A2 age 12/13 to 18

NGA age 12/13 to 18 Level 1,2,3,4

ZfA B1/DSD I at least age 14 and C1/DSDII age 16

We come now to the first AATG NGA National German Exam for High School students, in which we participate already with 6th graders Middle School level.

aatg.org/general/custom.asp?page=NGE

We do testing early to reach level 4 one day and to guide the students early enough to a test system. Every student on each level will be prepared.

Out of this membership we hold with AATG students receive certificates medals, honor roll letters, can become members of the Delta Epsilon Phi Honor Society.

We can start as early as Middle School.

It is time to enroll our students for this German Exam by next week the 10th on Level 2, 3, and 4, Exam by End of January.

Level 1 students will be enrolled in January, Exam Mid April.
For all testing, I need parents written acceptance. We let the parents know by email about the upcoming Exams.

Teachers have a Conference about the ZfA testing every year and the Exam days are set by the Ministry of Education in Berlin.

Testing A1 Vergleichsarbeit

Students will be in 3rd grade-9 years old up to 5th grade 11 years old.

It is an official Test we turn in to ZfA Central Agency of Schools Abroad
It is about 10 sentences reading, understanding, and answering questions with right and wrong. Then we read a part and students draw the elements of the story. They write an invitation to for sample a Birthday Party with words given. We have a conversation with all.

Students get really nice certificates with stars.

Mrs. Roche will tell you something about the A2 and DSDI Exam of the ZfA.

I will open the Powerpoint.

We get clear guidelines on what we have to do to cover these Exams. We are all trained in it by ZfA.

I will then take over again at the DSD II of the ZfA, which we were able to compete successfully in the Thanksgiving week.

DSDII PowerPoint

We have the AP German Language and Cultural class where we have the exam on May 5th by the College Board.

All these exams cumulate in the Seal of Biliteracy in which our students will get another great certificate and medal to stand out of the crowd once it comes to employment or university studies. These students earn much more money one day.

What do you the parents expect from a School like the German School campus?

Seeking student programs and contests that can demonstrate a level of quality in terms of its educational value, its operation.
