Possible topics: – The American Dream – Immigrants – Civil Rights/Slavery – American Environmentalism – Economic Inequality in America – The War on Terror – Gender/LGBTQ – Race/Ethnics – Split Society, Populist Movements Further topics on request Venue: Library of the DAI Heidelberg Duration: 3 hours (in the morning) Costs: 3,50 € per student, minimum amount 70 € Send us an e-mail! Note: On request, our native English speakers will also visit your school. We will be happy to respond to your requests and put together an individual package for you. The costs here usually differ slightly and are made up of the duration of the workshop (at least 2 school hours) and the distance of the school from our location in Heidelberg. Special: Election Year 2020 Election year 2020 in the USA – on the occasion of the presidential elections in November, we are offering a special topic special within our U.S. Topics this year. Will Trump remain or will there be a new incumbent – perhaps even the first incumbent? Topics such as Electoral College, Super Tuesday or Gerrymandering are dealt with in the current socio-political context and can be supplemented by further focal points if desired. The expansion of media skills is also an integral part of the U.S. Topics program. Send us an e-mail! New program for 6th & 7th grade We offer a U.S. Topics Workshop on “American Holidays and Celebrations” especially for 6th and 7th grade students. Why is the Chicago River dyed green on March 17 each year? On what day do Americans put mayonnaise in their toothpaste? And what does “Mele Kalikimaka” actually mean? The workshop begins with a paper chase through the DAI library, during which the children also get to know the library system. This is followed by a presentation about the most important US American holidays and vacations, followed by the popular American quiz “Jeopardy”. Finally, hot chocolate or homemade lemonade is served, depending on your wishes and the season. Send us an e-mail!
