This presentation will show a project that aims to facilitate the use of authentic reading texts throughout the Russian language curriculum. In first- and second-year Russian, students will complete a series of lessons that focuses on various aspects of learning vocabulary and understanding words in context, and finish by beginning to read their first full authentic texts in Russian. In third- and fourth-year Russian, students will use a set of materials that help them to read works of classic Russian literature with exercises that help them to continue to develop their skills in understanding words from morphology and retain vocabulary across readings. The presentation will include some examples as well as a description of the process with lessons learned to benefit others who may want to undertake a similar project.
