Description

OER provided the chance to create a needed text for an initiative to bring the Oregon State Seal of Biliteracy to Higher Education, starting at Chemeketa Community College.

This text differs from a traditional 200 level languages course as it includes a broader focus to incorporate ACTLF's four language domains, and the materials are presented in-context to meet the unique needs of a Heritage Language Learner. The relevancy of the content has also been updated to touch on contemporary issues and themes, as well as bring-in new forms of media.

Information on the Biliteracy Seal initiative and the role of this text will be provided.
