In this workshop Doris Liederer will provide an insight into module-based teaching of various topics relevant to American culture as well as literature. Her handbook (published in 2020) is intended to guide English language students (CEFR B1-B2+) through a variety of chapters of American history and culture. In parts, it contains materials to help them to prepare for their school-leaving exams (Matura) in English, including not only reading and listening tasks but also language in use and speaking exercises. The use of a variety of types of activities as well as various forms of media enhances students’ motivation and makes the featured content as memorable as possible. Doris Liederer firmly believes that anyone can acquire a foreign language and that teachers and their competencies can be highly supportive whether the language learning process is based on joy, intrinsic motivation and sustainability.
Dr. Doris Liederer has been a teacher of English and Italian at BORG Dreierschützengasse Graz since 2012.
