Knut Age Teigen Snöball Film, Norway
How can students learn a foreign language through the Storyline approach? A new film from Snöball Film documents how this is done in an 8th grade class at Ringstabekk skole in Bærum.
The students had been learning German for half a year when their teacher, Ulrikke Smith, introduced Storyline to the class. For the next six weeks the students created their own little town in Germany which they decided to call Kleinstad.
The Storyline film is part of a series of films showing different approaches in teaching foreign languages. The project is a collaboration between Snöball Film and the Norwegian Centre for Foreign Languages in Education.
In December 2009 the DVD with the films was sent to all middle and secondary schools in Norway.
