CREATE is a curriculum authoring and sharing platform designed especially for world language educators.

At the center of STARTALK CREATE is an interactive Learning Plan Template that guides instructional design based on the three stages of curriculum planning. When using this template, teachers are guided through a backward design process to build a standards-based and thematically organized curriculum based on STARTALK-Principles for Effective Teaching & Learning.

Sharing, Search, Discovery

Teachers publish their curriculum into the CREATE library for search and discovery by other teachers. Resources are tagged by the Can-Do statement(s) addressed, target language, target proficiency level, program level, and other educational metadata, so world language educators can search our growing library of learning plans and discover resources relevant for their unique context. Educators will be able to save and bookmark resources to their profile for future use.
