Celebrating the World's Languages: A Guide to Creating a World Languages Day Event

WLD Guide

Download
the *free* guide Celebrating the World's Languages: A Guide to Creating a World Languages Day Event (see below for more information)

World Languages Day is an award-winning, all-day event that brings over 700 Wisconsin high school students to the UW-Madison campus to participate in over 50 language- and culture-focused presentations, workshops and performances led by UW-Madison faculty, staff, and students.

To assist other institutions in planning an event similar to World Languages Day, Catherine Reiland, former Language Institute outreach coordinator and founding organizer of World Languages Day, has co-authored a new publication that provides step-by-step guidance in how to design, plan, and implement a successful event. Reiland's co-authors are Joy Campbell (Michigan State University), and Stephanie Treat (University of Minnesota), in collaboration with UW-Madison associate director Dianna Murphy and director Sally Magnan. The guide is published by the Center for Language Education and Research (CLEAR), a national Title VI language resource center at Michigan State University.

The publication Celebrating the World's Languages: A Guide to Creating a World Languages Day Event is available to download at no cost through the Center for Language Education and Research (CLEAR) at Michigan State University. You must, however, create an account with CLEAR first.

To learn more about World Languages Day, visit our website or contact Language Institute outreach coordinator Wendy Johnson.
