Open CL-150 Cohort Lessons – Week 2 Posted by on Mar 24, 2020 in For Instructors, For Learners, For Program Managers

If COVID-19 is disrupting your language program, we’d like to help.

Last week we announced Open CL-150 Cohorts to help US Government language programs meet challenges presented by COVID-19. For at least four weeks, we will release all 36 of that week’s Cohort lessons for use by any learner, sustainer, or instructor in the US Government language community. While these open lessons don’t include any data tracking, they do provide two hours of current, relevant, level-appropriate learning materials for learners at ILR 2, 2+, and 3. You can find the first week of open lessons here, and this week’s brand new lessons are listed below. Please share with anyone you think might benefit.

Note: Those of you already using the CL-150 Platform for yourself or your program can ignore this! You already have access to each week’s lessons via the CL-150 Platform, and you should continue the same way.

For others, we hope these open lessons provide a bridge to learners and classes going remote in a hurry. As you cross that bridge, we know many of you will be thinking about longer-term solutions for remote learning and instruction. If you’re concerned about losing visibility into learner activity and progress, creating and assigning virtual learning materials, or efficiently providing effective remote instruction at scale, we encourage you to explore the CL-150 Platform and learn more about how we can help you seamlessly transition to more remote-centric acquisition and sustainment.

We’re here to help:

Find your Cohort Lesson from the list below or via the downloadable PDF*.

*Reminder, if you have a CL-150 account, please log in and access this week’s Cohort lesson from your Learning Path so your learning time is tracked and reported!
