Why German Theater Project at Indiana University?
Would you like to reward your German students for their creativity and use of the German language?
The German Theater Project for High Schools is an annual creative endeavor that culminates in a one-day festival and competition on the Indiana University Bloomington campus, where groups of up to ten students from at least ten different Indiana High School German programs present video recorded versions of brief theatrical productions in German and participate in tailored-made interactive workshops on all things German and theater.
- Awards will be given to the best performances in two categories, original and adaptive scripts. The quality of video production is not the winning criteria; rather it is the theatrical performance of the students that merits the awards. The committee will also select "Best Acting" and "Best Use of German" from all of the submissions.
- Students participate in interactive workshops to hone their acting skills, German pronunciation, and dialect appreciation.
- Additionally, German teachers accompanying the students will participate in a professional development workshop on theater and foreign language teaching and receive official Professional Growth Plan Experience Documentation.
- See how this project complies with the Indiana Common Core Standards (INCC).
