"Apuntes sobre los principios y características de la metodología AICLE" en V. Pavón, J. Ávila (eds.), Aplicaciones didácticas para la enseñanza integrada de lengua y contenidos. Sevilla: Consejería de Educación de la Junta de Andalucía-Universidad de Córdoba.171-180. Está basada sobre todo en la experiencia práctica a la hora de diseñar unidades y conversaciones con expertos y compañeros. También he tenido en cuenta la teoría de las 4 Cs de Do Coyle, expuesto en numerosas publicaciones como por ejemplo: Coyle, D., Hood, P. and Marsh, D., 2010. Content and Language Integrated Learning.
