Interactive text for pre-twentieth century texts for an upper-level
German literature class
Atherton (German, Connecticut C.)
The goal of this project is also to evaluate
the pedagogical value of using interactive texts by checking for an increased
students' level of understanding for set texts. This project is web based
and will include a text with vocabulary items, annotations, images, videos
and sound clips.

German vocabulary database
|Melissa Vogelsang (formerly of Connecticut C.), Annemie Arnold (Wesleyan U.), Johannes Evelein (Trinity C.), Vera Grant (Wesleyan U.)
They are creating a database of German words with illustrations and
sound. This database will be used as a source for exercises to be used
in intermediate-level German. Future projects include expanding this database
to include Russian and Hebrew as well as other languages. This group recently
received a grant from Ameritech
to continue this work with Denison College.

presentation on the life and work of August Sander. These materials will
include her videotaped interviews with Sander's daughter. She recently
received additional funding to continue her research for this project in
Germany. A report of the project is available.
