“The literary in the every day,” is a textbook for a transdisiplinary approach to reading/writing at the first and second year levels of college French. The files that make up the textbook serve as foreign language templates in the form of an OER to bridge the well known divide between lower level language courses and upper level literature “content” courses. Language teachers, with the help of these templates, can develop their own reading and writing activities to highlight the metaphorical nature of language. In our continued commitment toward making our resources more open and remixable, the resource is published in a publicly accessible Google Drive. With a Google account, users can even make their own copy and remix the content.
