This Storyline has been designed by me and then implemented by a seventh grade class in a lower high school (Hauptschule) in Schleswig Holstein, Germany. Starting with a fact file of Hurricane Katrina, the students decided to rebuild an area of New Orleans – the characters, the houses and shops. The Storyline has seven episodes. As part of my teacher training examination I wrote a dissertation about its design. The goals were to help the students to work on their speaking and writing skills in English and, in my opinion it was successful and the class participated well. My dissertation is, of course, in German.
