I gave my German 2 final exam on Google Forms today. At the end, I asked some questions about the class. This is what I found.
The reason I took German this year was because
|of family heritage||4||21%|
|of interest in German cars, music, history, culture||6||32%|
|it's easier to learn than Spanish or Latin||1||5%|
|a friend recommended it||1||5%|
|I wanted to take a class from Mr. Dittes||1||5%|
|I hate paper||1||5%|
I wish I would have had a broader "other" category. When that comes second, you're missing out on key data.
I am interested in taking additional courses in German online or later, in college
One goal I have for my German class is to encourage kids to learn more German. Half the class has a high likelihood of studying more--and that's not including six students who were exempt.
This class made me want to visit Germany, Austria or Switzerland.
I feel comfortable trying to speak German with people I meet outside of class.
This is actually a pretty good result, considering that they're just beginners.
I would like to read more about German history.
Which history segments did you learn a lot from.
|Romans v Goths||5||19%|
|World War I||4||15%|
|World War II||6||23%|
|Berlin Wall/Cold War||8||31%|
The Berlin Wall comes in at most popular, with World War 2 right behind. Not a surprise
I would recommend this class to a rising sophomore.
I practiced my German outside of experiences in the class.
This was a disappointment for me. Too many kids in German 2 who didn't bother to do homework...or make-up work. I will need to emphasize homework more next year.
I liked learning German at my own pace.
My bold experiment this year was using Deutsche Welle's Deutsch Interaktiv as an independent learning experience. This answer was skewed by the lack of exempt students from this survey. Still, it shows what I observed. The kids who benefited were the ones who learn any way you teach them. The ones who failed, failed worse than if I held their hands. This mirrors my experiment with a Flipped Classroom in German 2 last year. I'll keep trying.
