The Student-Centric Path to AP® Success

Scaffolded tasks engage learners in the three modes of communication, bringing them from basic concepts, such as school and university life, to more sophisticated topics, like environmental sustainability and identity.

You can choose from a variety of interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational activities to address the areas where your students need to develop the most. We also added more opportunities for working with German cinema in class.

Provide your students with solid preparation for the AP® exam while delving into the culture, history, and arts of Germany.

Take a quick look at Neue Blickwinkel

"I like this book a lot, because it is so well structured with: reading material in different length, useful grammatical explanations and exercises, plenty of room for the students to apply what they have learnt in each lesson, vocabulary lists that cover the respective topics beautifully. My favorite part are the topics: I think every student can relate to these, making it an awesome textbook."

Barbara Kauderer

"Neue Blickwinkel touches on themes of interest to my teens. The vocabulary is divided into function and color is used throughout. (I am a big advocate of color in learning, as it helps the whole brain become engaged.) It's not too large a text but functions in themes that I use (and that the AP reading/listening themes often use as well). There are ample opportunities for students to research more deeply a theme that interests them and because the reading texts are interesting, to improve their reading comprehension as well as their vocabulary."

Janey Haynes

"I love the thematic approach. Great for expanding vocabulary and teaching culture!"

Each book comes with a subscription to Learning Site®

The Interactive Digital Textbook

Your FlexText® is the page-by-page digital version of the textbook and is available through your Explorer® class or the FlexText® Library link on your Dashboard. Don't want to bring home your textbook? No problem! FlexText® is available wherever there is internet access.

A Community Bulletin Board

Learners and teachers alike use the Classroom Forum anytime as their online community bulletin board. Teachers love posting lesson openers, polls, links to external resources, and more. And students can comment, exchange GIFS, and upload audio, videos, and photos.

Learning to hold a conversation

Mock conversations with pre-recorded conversation prompts challenge your learners to hone their conversational skills. Learners record themselves replying to comments and questions, and the recorded conversations can be added to their portfolio as an artifact.

Tracking Their Own Progress

Online student portfolios follow learners from unit to unit, level to level. Students can upload evidence of what they can do in the language - assigned Can-Do statements, activities, quizzes, audio files, PowerPoint and Word files, and more. This allows them to set goals and reflect on their progress related to Can-Do Statements.

Efficient, Integrated Grading

Use the online calendar to remind students of upcoming assignments and deadlines, assign tasks to specific learners or an entire class, and more. Explorer® lets you know when your students complete their work and alerts students as soon as you’ve graded. Grade each quiz question response without opening each question in Explorer®. Automatic grading is available where appropriate.
