How to Access Reading, Writing, and Listening Tasks in Blackboard
Each World Language course is divided into six Learning Modules. Each Learning Module contains content to study and tasks to complete by the due date indicated on the Course Calendar. 

Each Learning Module contains a [Study] section, followed by [Reading], [Writing], [Listening], [Speaking], [Folium], and [Synthesis] tasks.

Four of these six tasks are designed to employ the content and complete the module objectives in each language modality.

  • Reading Tasks

Pieces of realia that students may encounter in their personal or professional lives. Emphasis placed on holistic proficiency and critical thinking skills when working with gaps of knowledge.

  • Writing Tasks

Technical proficiency of all aspects of written communication including spelling, vocabulary use cases, grammar use cases, syntax, and more. Focus placed on micro-elements instead of macro-works.

  • Listening Tasks

Recordings provided via YouTube. Students are encouraged to listen and repeat as much as they would like.
