Vocabulary Activities

Choose a thematic group of vocabulary items from your first-year textbook. Create a series of activities that progress from less contextualized to more richly contextualized language samples within a structured input to structured output framework. Your activities should demonstrate recycling of the vocabulary. Be sure to provide translations for your classmates.

Here are some of the activities created by the beginning language teachers:
