Die Wolke - German A2 literature

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by rosee, Jul 6, 2010.

  1. Hi there!
    I was just wondering if anyone had read 'Die Wolke' by Gudrun Pausewang with their A Level group? I have just started it with my year 12 (going into 13) as I remember reading it at school and enjoying it. Now that we are getting into it, however, I have remembered how sad it is and am wondering if it was a good choice or not! Has anyone out there studied it with their groups and if so how did the students react to it? Am I being too sensitive?! Any feedback would be appreciated.
    Danke!

    Sad it may be, but I remember I couldn't put it down when I first read it! It should give students plenty to think about and debate.

  3. Hi
    I couldn't put it down when I first read it. It's a good read. Did you know that a film was made of it in 2006 and has been published on You Tube in 10 episodes each 10 minutes in length.
    It is very well made and I have used it even with a Y9 set 2 class with no sub-titles!
