The focus of this instructional unit is reading fairy tales by the brothers Grimm and Wilhelm Busch. By focusing on the texts and accompanying activities students will improve their reading skills and expand their vocabulary, while simultaneously solidifying their grammatical competence of the simple past tense. This unit will be taught using a hybrid approach. Students will read the texts online, study the vocabulary and the irregular forms of the verbs, and drill them online before taking an assessment test in class. The assessment test will include all the verbs compiled on the "Verbenliste" as well as the vocabulary from the "Biografie Grimm", "Biografie Busch" and "Rumpelstilzchen".

The online quizzes allow students to practice the vocabulary and to drill the irregular verbs through repetition.
