Mr. Robert Veley was the head ot the German
Language department and the only teacher in the depart-
ment for the 1975-76 school year.
The German classes used many aides in learning this
language. Some of the aides were practice records for stu-
dent use at home, video tape machines, headphones and
tapes so that the student could hear the right way to pro-
nounce words and also so the instructor could hear each
studentarid help him.
Benson offered only first and second year German.
Students studied German for many reasons: to learn
another language, to enable them to travel in Europe with
more understanding, to use as a basis for future college
courses, and to earn a high school credit.
Mr. Veley was assisted this year by a student teacher,
Mr. Ron Senter, who arrived in the middle of the third
grading period ond stayed until until the end ofthe school
