Reality Czech: A Course in Contemporary Czech Language and Culture

Grant: ,

Project Description:

Reality Czech is a contemporary, interactive, and personalized curriculum for beginning language students. Designed using techniques of blended and flipped learning, it spans several platforms (Reality Czech website, Canvas course site, Quizlet) as well as various media types (online and print). Each module follows a sequence of pre-class activities (Quizlet vocabulary activities, video and audio with comprehension questions, culture notes, grammar exercises), in-class activities in an activity book that encourages interaction and language production, and post-class activities that use both exercises and authentic texts as a catalyst for students to create language.
