Open Educational Resources for the preK-16 Second Language Classroom

The Pathways Project

Launched in 2018 as an initiative from the Boise State Department of World Languages, the Pathways Project is an open and collaborative network of K-16 language staff, teachers and students who retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute instructional language teaching materials and professional development.

What is the Pathways Project?

Teachers and students participate in the Pathways Project and come from different fields of study and schools across the globe to create open, digital activities that support the teaching and learning of world languages and promote intercultural competence.

The Francophone Project

The Francophone Project, developed by Emily Blackburn and Taylor Sharp, is a resource that was created to bring awareness to the various French speaking countries throughout the world. Because culture is so important and not always covered in the classroom, we created a website for educators and learners of the French language to use as a way to access information about culture through natives. The website includes individuals from France to Canada, Algeria, The Ivory Coast and more. Through short videos, these individuals share certain aspects about their cultures while reflecting what it means to be Francophone to them.
