In addition to the German Honor Society at Plainfield South, there are other avenues to earning honors and awards by learning German.
Students enrolled in AP German have the option to take the Advanced Placement exam in May. This rigorous exam can earn you college credit. Practice sessions after school are available between March and May. Throughout the year in class we will do many activities to prepare as well.
Seal of Biliteracy
This is newly available to Plainfield students in the 2018-2019 school year. Check back later, when Herr Harring has more information.
National German Exam
This exam, sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of German is available to all levels of students. It is an excellent way to prepare for the AP exam, and students can earn awards by their scores.
UIC German Day
This event every spring includes many different events. Students can prepare a skit or a video, write an essay, or participate in other challenges. Herr Harring currently only takes fourth year students to this event. Students wishing to attend, but not participate, may visit a 100 level German course or take a tour of UIC.
