Authentic Resources


Authentic Resources by Language, Theme and Topic

To develop proficiency, learners need opportunities to use their language in real-world situations, using authentic cultural resources (i.e., resources that are created by native speakers for native speakers). These lists of authentic resources, suggested by world language educators throughout Ohio, are categorized by themes and topics, and include an explanation of each website and suggestions for how teachers can use it with their learners.

Pursuant to ORC 3301.079 (B) (3) and 3313.60, it is the responsibility of Ohio's local boards of education to vet and approve curriculum and educational materials for use in the public schools within their district. The use of any materials posted or linked to on the Ohio Department of Education website, including materials within Ohio’s Learning Standards or Appendices or any state model curricula or other educational resource material, is entirely up to the discretion of each local board of education.
