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.
