Language Activities Discussion

Let's get started with Language Activities!

In looking at the Language Activities component, there are many resources to use, such as films, magazines, newspapers, books, plays, journals, letters/emails, etc.

  • Which resources do you access most often in your language? Describe it so that others could access it too.
  • Why is this a good resource to share with your language learners?

Please reply to this post to join the discussion or, if you don't have a #GoOpenNC or NCEdCloud account, go to the Jamboard at and add your responses.

I usually access movies, tv shows, and video clips on different platforms. These resources are great for engaging language learners and exposing them to authentic uses of the language. The topics may be used to discuss language usage and structure, content knowledge, and cultural awareness.

There are educational platforms that develop educational videos. For instance, PBS At-Home Learning NC is a platform for educators to access audiovisual materials. These videos are organized in sections such as "Classroom Connection" with math and literacy lessons and educational programming through the "At-Home Learning" project, which addresses all content areas.

It sounds small, but captions for video!  A great way to brig students' attention to the words being spoken. It helps with vocabulary, spelling, and pronunciation!
