    About the Pathways Project

    Please Note: Many of the activities on the Pathways Project OER Repository were created by upper-division students at Boise State University and serve as a foundation that our community of practice can build upon and refine. While they are polished, we welcome and encourage collaboration from language instructors to help modify grammar, syntax, and content where needed. Kindly contact amberhoye@boisestate.edu with any suggestions and we will update the content in a timely manner.  — The Pathways Project

    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 amberhoye@boisestate.edu.

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 in Spanish, follow the instructions below:

    • I can use simple sentences to answer questions related to familiar topics I have learned throughout the semester
    • I can be answer questions about my personal preferences
    • I can talk about vocabulary that I have learned throughout the semester

    Materials Needed:

    Warm-up

    • 1. After introducing the can-do statements, go over some warm-up questions. The questions ask students what their favorite topic this semester was and which was the hardest. Have students explain why they liked one the most and why one was hard. They can answer that it was the vocabulary, the topic itself, etc. This is just to have students reflect on the semester and remember all the topics they talked about. 
      • Para el calentamiento, vamos a hablar un poco de este semestre. Quiero saber sus opiniones. ¿Cuál fue su tema favorito? ¿Cuál fue el tema más difícil? ¿Por qué te gusto uno y por qué fue más difícil el otro? ¡Este calentamiento nos ayuda a recordar un poco todo lo que hemos hablado este semestre!

    Main Activity

    • 1. For the main activity, students will play jeopardy. The jeopardy has vocabulary and questions related to each of the five topics they learned this semester. 
      • Para la actividad principal, vamos a jugar “Jeopardy!”. Este jeopardy va a ser un repaso breve de todo el semestre. El juego tiene preguntas de vocabulario y preguntas para charlar de los 5 (cinco) temas que hicimos este semestre. 
    • 2. Students will take turns choosing a level and a topic. The 100-300 levels for each topic are all vocabulary. 400-500 are personal questions that must be answered in at least 1-3 sentences. If a student does not know the vocabulary word, the instructor should not reveal the answer so that another student may attempt it. If a student is not sure how to answer a question, the instructor must allow another student to attempt it as well. 
      • Cada uno de ustedes va a tomar un turno escogiendo un número y un tema. ¡OJO, los números más grandes son un poco más difíciles! Hay números que preguntan sobre el vocabulario y hay otros números que hacen preguntas personales que deben responder con 1-3 oraciones.  
    • 3. The lab instructor should go through as many of the levels and topics as time permits. Five minutes should be allocated before the end of the lab to go over wrap-up questions. 
       

    Wrap-up

    • Leave at least 5 (five) minutes to wrap up and say goodbye for the semester!
    • En tu opinión, ¿qué actividad fue la más divertida este semestre?
      ¿Cómo vas a continuar practicando el Español?
