Concept by: Lucy Tasca

Description

This course is designed for teachers in primary school who want to learn how to create content based learning lessons and implement them in their classes. Focus will be on selecting an appropriate topic, sourcing and creating content and adapting the foreign language didactic materials to different age groups and language levels. Teachers will use the content and new methodologies to enhance motivation and boost self-confidence in their classrooms. 

Through work-alone or group activities, simulations and role plays, participants will experience first hand how CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) promotes interdisciplinary learning, adding a real-world dimension to a course topic while contextualizing language learning. Topics will include: sourcing and choosing content, scaffolding content and language learning, adapting the content to students’ needs and abilities, evaluation strategies and many ideas for implementing CLIL in the primary classroom. Classroom management strategy and support will also be addressed as it relates to this innovative and increasingly popular methodology that engages both teachers and students.

At the end of the course participants will return to their schools with a suitcase-full of enthusiasm, ideas, strategies and activities to integrate into their course curricula for successful and effective CLIL lessons with their primary students.  

The course will address both the needs of native speakers faced with teaching CLIL lessons as well as the challenges faced by non-native speakers.

Audience
