The following articles I wrote for Teach Secondary magazine have recently been published on their website:
KS3: Discussing Halloween
KS4: Olympic values
Did you know that Regional TV programmes are the second most popular type of TV programme that Germans like to watch? In the number one slot come news programmes with sport at number 3. Crime and detective series are number 4 followed by programmes about politics and economics.
All this is according to the statistics put out by Statista.de and comes from a section entitled Toplisten. This section of the website includes picture galleries of favourite snacks (fruit and raw food comes in at number 1), the most annoying things that women say (!), the actual most watched TV programmes in Germany, what Germans like to do in their free time and the most popular uses of a mobile phone amongst other things.
Statistics are an example of an authentic resource that can easily be exploited in the classroom:
This website also has infographics which are ideal for use with KS5 classes, although some like this one on fast food could easily be used at KS3 and KS4 as well.
