Welcome to the German Outreach website!
Since 2003, the USC German Program has supported an Outreach Program to area elementary schools. The Program started at Brennen Elementary School and expanded to A.C. Moore Elementary School during the spring of 2005.

The Program is taught by undergraduate students studying German and supervised by graduate students in the German Program. As part of their preparation for teaching, the undergraduate students meet once a week in German 401 "Teaching German to Young Children" to discuss teaching methods and review the lesson plans. Then the USC students visit either A. C. Moore or Brennen once per week and teach a 45-minute lesson that was prepared by the supervising graduate students. After the lessons, the graduate student supervisors send weekly feedback emails to let the students know what they did well and to give them tips for improvement.

Students who have taken German 401 or who are planning to take it, can apply for the Checkpoint Charlie Summer Program to teach English for a month in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany. Click on the Checkpoint Charlie Program for more information about this program.

Please contact the coordinator of the program, Dr. Lara Ducate, if you have any questions.
