CLIL for Music Teachers: Enhancing Language and Music Skills

Description

Concept by Marco Palmigiani

Targeted to B2 speakers or above. Read more »

At the B2 CEFR level, learners understand complex texts, both concrete and abstract, and engage in fluent and spontaneous interactions with native speakers. They can produce detailed texts, presenting viewpoints on a wide range of subjects and considering different options.

Music teaching!

What a wonderful theme for Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) activities both in primary and secondary schools, for teachers of foreign languages, music education, or musical instruments!

On the one hand, indeed, music is an engaging subject with the potential to attract pupil and student attention.

On the other, it is also particularly suited to being taught in a foreign language integrating the playful aspects with the didactic ones, as it easily expands learners’ vocabulary with ensemble musical activities and ways to convey information directly (e.g., giving commands or instructions in practical activities).

This course will enable music teachers to introduce CLIL pathways into the school curriculum, developing learners’ multilingual competence together with musical skills. Moreover, it will support foreign language teachers to enrich their understanding of music to introduce it as an authentic subject in their CLIL activities.

During the course, participants will dig deep into several domains related to music including music theory, the history of music, musical instruments, ensemble music, and choir, thereby acquiring and practicing the lexicon necessary to teach these subjects in English.

Moreover, participants will explore the CLIL methodology, and discuss in a friendly context how to create structured CLIL courses focusing on both the theoretical and the practical side of music lessons, and how to cure all phases of lesson design, from the planning of CLIL activities to the assessment of student outcomes.

The course will also indicate some apps and ICT tools that are useful to support teachers in CLIL lessons. At the end of this course, the participants will have the methodological and didactic skills to teach music with CLIL.
