TEACHING THROUGH CONTENT: What does this mean? JMBG. CLIL. content culture language social context learning Educational Project Introduction of a variety of topics (CONTENT) that come from the academic disciplines or the CULTURE of the target language and transferring through the means of LANGUAGE. These conversations promote an appropriate social context in which communication occurs ,and therefore, a content LEARNING. (Tedick, 2003:8)
TEACHING THROUGH CONTENT. ADVANTAGES. JMBG. CLIL. Content teaching creates a context where meaningful communication takes place because the focus is on content and not the language. The opportunities to use the L2 are more frequent and lead to increased motivation and interest. Content-based information is easier to remember than information based on aspects of grammar and thus leads to deeper learning. Integrating content and language takes into account the interests, needs and cognitive levels of students. Speaking and thinking in another language not only improves communication skills but also cognitive skills.
JMBG. CLIL. TEACHING THROUGH CONTENT. DISADVANTAGES. Language teachers lack knowledge on the subjects while subject teachers have minimal knowledge of foreign languages. Possible differences between the professors responsible for non-linguistic and linguistic areas (of teaching). The production of materials . (Finding materials). Content specific expressions in the L2 can be a barrier in the process of teaching / learning. The assessment of student performance. What/How to evaluate?
HOW TO PLAN CONTENT LEARNING IN THE CLASSROOM? JMBG. CLIL. OBJECTIVES: concepts CONTENT: (academic and cultural) LINGUISTIC ADAPTATION (required / compatible) LEARNING THROUGH TASKS a. Pre-task b. Task c. Post-task (Follow-up) WORK INDIVIDUALLY, IN PAIRS AND IN GROUPS CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION
CONCLUSION JMBG. CLIL. Teaching through content is a useful educational strategy in multilingual education. The emphasis is on content (with grammar embedded within) and on communication. Implications for teaching and learning process in L2.
JMBG. CLIL. POINTS TO THINK ABOUT -What do you notice about the instruction in science class? How does the class in the video differ from our typical science classes? -Have you heard before about this type of learning/teaching? -Do you believe team-teaching is positive or negative in CLIL? -Do you agree or disagree with our Autonomic Government's strategies to prepare teachers for bilingualism or multilingualism classrooms? -Do you think CLIL is here to stay or it is only something temporary? -Do you believe the school have to spend more time in literacy and maths instead of this kind of projects?
