    About the Boise State World Languages Resource Center (WLRC) Language Activity Repository

    The activities provided by the Boise State World Languages Resource Center (WLRC) serve as foundational activities which can be adapted by any language and scaled up or down on the proficiency scale. Many of these activities offer an English Version that is “language-agnostic” to provide language instructors from around the country a platform to remix these instructional materials, infusing them with their target language and culture! The activities within the Pathways Project OER Repository seek to help students solidify their interpersonal speaking and interpretive skills through task-based situations or communicative activities. These activities should be facilitated in the target language for approximately 90% (or more), per the recommendation of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

    How to use the WLRC Repository’s Activities:

    1. Use the Activity as is:

    Before you begin:

    • Most activities are 30 minutes in duration, unless otherwise specified.

    • Be sure to read through the activity description, and review the list of required materials. You will notice that the activity materials are also highlighted in yellow throughout the activity instructions.

    If you have any suggestions about grammar, syntax, and content, please kindly contact pathwaysproject@boisestate.edu

    2. Remix for Your Language Classroom:

    When you are ready to begin remixing the activity, in order to adapt it for the needs of your language classroom, simply click the blue “Remix This Resource” button at the top of your screen. This will then take you to a screen with a NEW, editable version of this activity. The text provided in purple is a suggestion of what you might say to your students in the target language, and may be altered for different levels and age groups. All activities have “NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do” statements, a warm-up, a main activity, and a wrap-up.

    Many of the activities include printable cards and other instructional materials such as Google Slideshows. If you would like to make changes to these materials for your language follow the instructions below:

    • Google Slideshows:

      • To begin, go to File -> Copy to create an editable version of the slideshow.
