Um zum Thema der Englischstunde überzuleiten, liest die Studentin einer 6. Klasse eines Gymnasiums einen Text vor, durch welchen die Schüler*innen die Textsorte erraten sollten, um die es geht. Die Stunde findet im Rahmen der Schulpraktischen Übungen statt.

[Zuvor hat die Studentin die SuS nach ihren Ferienaktivitäten befragt.]


Okay. Somebody else? [Sie nimmt einen Zettel in die Hand.]
Okay. I didn’t do anything at all because I had to go to university and prepare this lesson.
[Sie schaut auf die Zettel in ihre Hand.]

Because today we are going to do something very special. We are going to talk about a special topic. But I am not going to tell you what it is. I want you to find out for yourselves. And therefore I prepared a short text. It’s really short and you have to listen very very carefully and try to find out what our topic for today is. Okay?
[Sie liest von dem Zettel ab.] So today we are going to talk about a special kind of story. In this kind of story is usually about people in history. But often these kinds of stories are not completely true. Writers have taken historical events and changed them just a bit to make the story more interesting or exciting. Or maybe to show the difference between right and wrong more clearly. These special stories that we are going to talk about today have usually very colourful characters like kings and queens or magical characters like wizard. There are usually heroes, the good guys, and the bad guys, villains, who have dangerous fights and of course, the good guy usually wins. Popular heroes are often brave knights, but sometimes they’re just normal men who do brave things to help other people. Villains, the bad guys, can be very dangerous criminals or very powerful people who use their power and very bad way. They’re also more modern examples of these special kind of stories like for example Sherlock Holmes, a private detective who solved mysterious crimes. Sherlock Holmes never lived at all but people all over the world love to think that he did. [Sie legt den Zettel auf dem Lehrertisch ab.] Alright.
Who has an idea what we are going to talk about today? What kind of story am I talking about? It is similar, a similar word in German, so it should not be too hard though.
[Die SuS reagieren nicht.] It is sometimes true but sometimes it isn’t. It’s about historical characters like famous character or queens. Yeah … And these kind of stories exist in different countries, in different cultures. What could it be? [Die SuS reagieren lange nicht. Eine Schülerin meldet sich. Die Studentin schaut auf den Sitzplan.] Yes, Olivia?
