Materials helping to teach about culture and connections

Authorized users only:


The National Capital Language Resource Center: Culture Club

Added 11/20/2009
Easy to access page about culture around the world. Features an interview with two teenagers from Berlin in German, with transcripts.

CAPL: Culturally Authentic Pictorial Lexicon

Added 11/20/2009
Images from Germany, culturally authentic and license free. I might be able to contribute a few of my private photographs to this site. Compare to Realia Project.

Free Internet TV. I am not familiar with most of the Channels. I will first have to watch them myself.

New York Public Library Digital Gallery

Added 11/20/2009
I am pretty sure I will be able to find images about German immigrants in this database. German immigration is part of the German SOLs. In the long run I will probably have a separate list on this topic.

Deutsche Fotogalerie, Davidson College

Added 11/20/2009
This picture gallery is available for teaching. The pictures were taken in 1998, therefore some images are outdated. However, I found very interesting images from modern Germany. This site is definitely much more than the usual tourist images of old houses. Bilder: Hameln, Der Rattenfänger von Hameln

Kaleidoskop: Alltag in Deutschland

Added 02/04/2010
Alltag in Deutschland, Texte mit Bildern, wenn man sucht, findet man auch Videos. sehr gute Qualität, vom Goethe Institut alles auf Deutsch!
