CROSS-CURRICULAR TEACHING
IN THE MFL CLASSROOM
by Magdalena Bobek, mag.
CROSS-CURRICULAR TEACHING IN THE MFL
CLASSROOM
 Cross-curricular teaching and learning has been interpreted by teachers who use it
in their lessons, in many different ways. One of the basic objectives in cross-
curricular teaching is to cover as many subject areas within the lessons of a
particular subject as possible to enable students to do activities that will access as
much knowledge from as many subject areas within the curriculum. It also enables
teachers to not stick so rigidly to their coursebooks, but rather expand the given
objectives being taught to other subject areas while keeping in mind the main
objectives within a certain unit.
 Today's MFL coursebooks are often written by authors who are not natives of the
country where a particular coursebook is being used, and sometimes the reading
content presented in the books is not close to home for students who come from a
different cultural background from that of the author. This can have a negative
effect on them because they cannot identify themselves with that particular
content. With little or no prior knowledge of the content's background, learning
grammar from this perspective can be very difficult.
 However, if teachers can bring content, which has already been taught in another
subject area into the MFL classroom, even though foreign at first, it will serve as a
basis from which to build vocabulary as well as grammar, and make it easier for
students to understand.
 MFL can be incorporated into any subject area in the curriculum. In MFL the cross-
curricular approach can be used when introducing a new topic or grammar point,
when reviewing grammar and expanding it to another subject area, expanding
vocabulary as well as reading and writing skills.
 The cross-curricular sample of a lesson presented here shows how a geography
lesson on Japan can be used in the L2 language classroom when revising the use
of the degrees of the adjective and expanding vocabulary.

LESSON PROCEDURE
 English will be referred to as L2
 Slovenian (mother tongue) will be referred to as L1
 Step 1:
 Introduction for motivation purposes based on prior knowledge of Japan
from the geography lesson:
 - Using a power point presentation of the rising sun and the Japanese
anthem, the students are asked if they know why Japan is known as
*'the land of the rising sun'.
 - Looking at the Japanese flag with the red sun on a white background,
students discuss its symbolism*
 Step 2:
 New vocabulary linked to Japan:
- The teacher projects some English (L2) words (these are translations of newly-
acquired L1 words and expressions from their previous geography lesson on
Japan
- With the help of their geography notes, students are asked to read the words
projected silently to themselves and discuss their meanings with their neighbours
as well as help those students who have difficulty finding a link between the L2 and
L1 equivalents.
- Students are invited to explain the L2 word in L1 or give its L1 equivalent
 Step 3:
 Gap Fill:
- the students are then directed to individual L2 sentences containing known
information about Japan, but filled with gaps
- the students are asked to fill in the gaps using the newly-acquired L2
vocabulary already discussed in the first exercise
- the sentences are shown on the powerpoint one by one, so that everyone
concentrates on and/or discusses the same sentence.
 (Once an answer is given by a student, the correct answers appear under the given
sentence in yellow)
 Step 4:
 A revision of the degrees of the adjective:
- the new vocabulary is shown once again on the powerpoint
- students are asked to find adjectives among the projected words
 (= the biggest, the strongest, restless, overpopulated)
- with a raise of hands individual students give all three degrees of the adjectives found
and the L1 equivalent
- students are invited to check their geography notes and produce more L2 adjectives
with which they could describe Japan and its people, which the teacher randomly writes
on the board.
A revision of the expressions used with the degrees of the adjectives:
- the teacher projects and reviews L2 expressions used with adjectives
as ______ as
too ______
______ enough
_______ than
_______ in the world
- students add the appropriate degree:
as __1°___ as
too ___ 1°___
___1°__ enough
___2°__ than
___3°__ in the world
- this is followed by a short exercise again containing information of Japan, which the
students must complete with the correct degree of the given adjective and with the
help of the underlined words
 Step 5:
 PROJECT WORK:
- students are told that they are going to learn more about Japan
- each student is given an envelope containing material for project work:
 = one adjective, one thing/person/place that is linked to Japan, the
 name of another place with which to make a comparison; the
internet site
 where to look for information
 Instructions: (the instructions are explained and projected on the powerpoint as
well)
TASK:
- Write three sentences:
= in the first sentence use the superlative degree of the given adjective
to describe the thing/person/place in Japan
= in the second sentence find a fact, a piece of information to describe
the thing/person/place
= in the third sentence compare the thing/person/place with a similar
thing/person/place from a different country or place
= add a picture of the thing/person/place presented in your project
= prepare the material on A4 paper and print out
= exhibit in the L2 classroom
EXAMPLE:
Envelope material:
• Beautiful / park in Tokyo
• Write a fact about the park.
• Compare it to: Hibiya Park
• http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_records_of_Japan
1. The most beautiful park in Tokyo is UENO PARK.
2. It has got Sakura blossoms, a famous Japanese flower.
3. UENO PARK is more beautiful than Hibiya Park.

Cross curricular teaching in the mfl classroom

  • 1. CROSS-CURRICULAR TEACHING IN THE MFL CLASSROOM by Magdalena Bobek, mag.
  • 2. CROSS-CURRICULAR TEACHING IN THE MFL CLASSROOM  Cross-curricular teaching and learning has been interpreted by teachers who use it in their lessons, in many different ways. One of the basic objectives in cross- curricular teaching is to cover as many subject areas within the lessons of a particular subject as possible to enable students to do activities that will access as much knowledge from as many subject areas within the curriculum. It also enables teachers to not stick so rigidly to their coursebooks, but rather expand the given objectives being taught to other subject areas while keeping in mind the main objectives within a certain unit.
  • 3.  Today's MFL coursebooks are often written by authors who are not natives of the country where a particular coursebook is being used, and sometimes the reading content presented in the books is not close to home for students who come from a different cultural background from that of the author. This can have a negative effect on them because they cannot identify themselves with that particular content. With little or no prior knowledge of the content's background, learning grammar from this perspective can be very difficult.
  • 4.  However, if teachers can bring content, which has already been taught in another subject area into the MFL classroom, even though foreign at first, it will serve as a basis from which to build vocabulary as well as grammar, and make it easier for students to understand.  MFL can be incorporated into any subject area in the curriculum. In MFL the cross- curricular approach can be used when introducing a new topic or grammar point, when reviewing grammar and expanding it to another subject area, expanding vocabulary as well as reading and writing skills.
  • 5.  The cross-curricular sample of a lesson presented here shows how a geography lesson on Japan can be used in the L2 language classroom when revising the use of the degrees of the adjective and expanding vocabulary.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-ZZwY5Q8ZA  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SYtynp-zg4

LESSON PROCEDURE  English will be referred to as L2  Slovenian (mother tongue) will be referred to as L1  Step 1:  Introduction for motivation purposes based on prior knowledge of Japan from the geography lesson:  - Using a power point presentation of the rising sun and the Japanese anthem, the students are asked if they know why Japan is known as *'the land of the rising sun'.  - Looking at the Japanese flag with the red sun on a white background, students discuss its symbolism*
  • 12.  Step 2:  New vocabulary linked to Japan: - The teacher projects some English (L2) words (these are translations of newly- acquired L1 words and expressions from their previous geography lesson on Japan - With the help of their geography notes, students are asked to read the words projected silently to themselves and discuss their meanings with their neighbours as well as help those students who have difficulty finding a link between the L2 and L1 equivalents. - Students are invited to explain the L2 word in L1 or give its L1 equivalent
  • 13.  Step 3:  Gap Fill: - the students are then directed to individual L2 sentences containing known information about Japan, but filled with gaps - the students are asked to fill in the gaps using the newly-acquired L2 vocabulary already discussed in the first exercise - the sentences are shown on the powerpoint one by one, so that everyone concentrates on and/or discusses the same sentence.  (Once an answer is given by a student, the correct answers appear under the given sentence in yellow)
  • 14.  Step 4:  A revision of the degrees of the adjective: - the new vocabulary is shown once again on the powerpoint - students are asked to find adjectives among the projected words  (= the biggest, the strongest, restless, overpopulated) - with a raise of hands individual students give all three degrees of the adjectives found and the L1 equivalent - students are invited to check their geography notes and produce more L2 adjectives with which they could describe Japan and its people, which the teacher randomly writes on the board.
