Unterrichtsentwurf aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Englisch - Padagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 2, Studienseminar fur Gymnasien in Offenbach, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Bilder konnen aus urheberrechtlichen Grunden nicht angezeigt werden, finden sich aber in Lehrwerk S. 81, Abstract: Der Fokus der heutigen Stunde liegt auf der Einfuhrung des Past Perfect. Ziel des Fremdsprachenunterrichts ist es, dass SuS kompetent kommunizieren konnen. Aus eben diesen Bemuhungen, kommunikative Kompetenz zu erwerben, ergibt sich nach Hass die Notwendigkeit zur Klarung grammatischer Probleme" . Die Bildungsstandards fordern, dass die SuS am Ende der 8. Klasse den Ablauf eines personlich erlebten Ereignisses beschreiben konnen . Um ein Ereignis in der Vergangenheit beschreiben zu konnen, das sich bereits vor einer anderen Begebenheit ereignet hat, benotigen die SuS die Struktur des Past Perfect. In der heutigen Stunde wird das Past Perfect im Kontext eines Eishockeyspieles eingefuhrt. Dabei wird ein situativer Lernanlass geschaffen, der relevante Wortschatz wurde bereits in den vorangegangenen Stunden eingefuhrt. Das Past Perfect wird zwar auch in der oben genannten Unit des Lehrwerks (Unit 4 des von der Fachkonferenz als Leitmedium beschlossenen Lehrwerks English G21 A3) thematisiert, dort geschieht die Vermittlung jedoch eher im Sinne einer deduktiv ausgerichteten Grammatikunterweisung."

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The latest from Danielle Steel, Past Perfect is a spellbinding story of two families living a hundred years apart who come together in time in a startling moment, opening the door to rare friendship and major events in early-twentieth-century history. Sybil and Blake Gregory have established a predictable, well-ordered Manhattan life—she as a cutting-edge design authority and museum consultant, he in high-tech investments—raising their teenagers Andrew and Caroline and six-year-old Charlie. But everything changes when Blake is offered a dream job he can’t resist as CEO of a start-up in San Francisco. He accepts it without consulting his wife and buys a magnificent, irresistibly underpriced historic Pacific Heights mansion as their new home. The past and present suddenly collide for them in the elegant mansion filled with tender memories and haunting portraits when an earthquake shocks them the night they arrive. The original inhabitants appear for a few brief minutes. In the ensuing days, the Gregorys meet the large and lively family who lived there a century ago: distinguished Bertrand Butterfield and his gracious wife Gwyneth, their sons Josiah and little Magnus, daughters Bettina and Lucy, formidable Scottish matriarch Augusta and her eccentric brother Angus. All long since dead. All very much alive in spirit—and visible to the Gregorys and no one else. The two families are delighted to share elegant dinners and warm friendship. They have much to teach each other, as the Gregorys watch the past unfold while living their own modern-day lives. Within these enchanted rooms, it is at once 1917 and a century later, where the Gregorys gratefully realize they have been given a perfect gift—beloved friends and the wisdom to shape their own future with grace from a fascinating past. Past Perfect is Danielle Steel at her bewitching best, a novel for the ages.

From bestselling author Susan Isaacs comes her "feisty, funny, and smart" (New York Times) novel about a successful TV writer who once worked for the CIA. Katie seems to have the perfect life—a great husband, a precocious and winning ten-year-old son; and a glamorous job as writer for the long-running TV series, Spy Guys, based on her own surprisingly successful novel. But for Katie, writing about the spy business isn’t as satisfying as working in it. Fifteen years ago, she was working at CIA headquarters. She loved her job, and especially her boss. Then, suddenly, for no apparent reason, she was fired. Katie comes from a family of Manhattan achievers, so it’s been tough to accept such humiliation. She’d give almost anything to know what falsehoods lay in her personnel file. A surprise call from former colleague Lisa gives Katie hope. Lisa says she urgently needs Katie’s help on a matter of national importance and promises to reveal all if Katie will work with her. Then Lisa disappears. One person is dead, then another. Who will be next? With some help from a couple of colorful ex-spies, Katie embarks on a scary mission, leading her back to the extraordinary and eerie days as the Berlin Wall was about to crumble. Flawlessly crafted, witty and suspenseful, Past Perfect is classic Susan Isaacs in top form.

Henie pushing forty, never married, and wanting a fresh start, arrives at the door of Sylvia Blum. She rents the guest cottage from the widow and former socialite, a pleasant twist of fate for both. In spite of the age gap, they become close friends and confidants, though neither is given to discussing personal or unpleasant matters. Sam Bradley is a happily divorced man. The successful attorney and Henie find the greatest love in their September years when they have enough experience behind them to know the difference. They are meant for each other. Things begin to unravel when two unrelated events occur. First, Sam and his old friend, Brian Flarhety, are attacked outside of Brian's apartment by a raging schizophrenic. Second, the arrival of a rogue cop, Deputy Bentley Bowman, newly assigned to the beach community where Henie and Sylvia Blum reside. Bowman snoops around looking for a "mark." An innocent bit of gossip from a fellow cop who is about to retire, gets his full attention. The death of Sylvia Blum's husband was listed as accidental. This hard on the heels of another accident just down the road, a fatal shooting, within a year, stretches Bowman's idea of credibility. He decides blackmail is his path to early retirement. There is yet another accident, payoff, a trip to Mexico, and payback. To further complicate matters, a new will on which the ink is barely dry. Don't expect tidy and predictable. Nobody ever told you that life is like that. The characters are so natural, they leap from the pages. Their interaction and dialog will tug at your heart and expose the vulnerable side you keep carefully concealed.

freedom from perfection in life and faith

We seem to be obsessed with perfection. It's everywhere, permeating our conversations, our language, our advertising, our films and our religion. It's not only widespread across our culture; it has roots deep in the beginning of our civilization. For the sake of our well-being and our faith we need to be liberated from this pre-occupation. Past Perfect unravels some of the confusion surrounding our use of the word in many different contexts, and shapes an understanding of God that is free of this notion. 'Stephen Mitchell's lively, original and sometimes brilliant book is a sustained attack on that idea of absolute perfection. It is also part of the process by which modern Christianity is struggling to renew itself.' Don Cupitt, author of The Sea of Faith

Tense and Aspect - The Past Perfect

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Würzburg, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction: Tense and aspect A foreign learner of the English language has to struggle with many tasks concerning vocabulary and grammar. Especially the correct usage of the verb phrase includes a highly difficult problem and has to be analysed very detailed. It includes not only the grammatical category of tense but as well the category of aspect, mood and voice. This paper is supposed to concentrate on the grammatical categories tense and aspect. Tense is used to express the location of an event or state in time. It can be divided into future, present and past tense. By contrast to that “aspect” expresses the way in which the action or the state is experienced. It reflects the meaning of the verb in relation to time. That means it shows whether the action is finished or is still in progress. The English verb system includes the perfective aspect, the progressive aspect, the simple aspect and the perfect-progressive aspect. (Quirk et al. 1979: 40) In the following an overview of the tense past combined with the perfective aspect will be given. First of all the definitions of this tense and aspect will be compared in three different grammars: “Meaning and the English Verb” by Leech, “A Student’s Grammar of the English Language” by Quirk and Greenbaum and “Longman Student Grammar of spoken and written English” by Biber et al.. In the second part of the paper the application of the past perfect will be analysed in an excerpt of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” written by Joanne K. Rowling.

Abandoned by her husband, Eastman takes a job as head of analytics for an archaeological company and heads to Antarctica, where scientists have discovered the body of a man preserved in ice for at least five thousand years. It is not long before an intrigued Eastman begins secretly speculating whether the frozen man’s sperm could become a viable component in her mission to become pregnant. After overcoming ethical hurdles, Eastman relies on chemical skills to extract the man’s sperm and impregnate herself. Nine months later, she gives birth to an ancient man’s baby boy, suddenly transforming both her and Jemmy into reluctant scientific celebrities. Eventually an unhappy Eastman secretly travels to Rio de Janeiro with Jemmy to begin an anonymous life. Years later when she finally returns to America with Jemmy so he can attend college, he learns the truth about himself—and his inherited abilities. Unfortunately, Eastman has no idea that the decision she made long ago is about to lead to lethal consequences.
