CLIL in Secondary School: Make it work, make it effective - Drogheda

Rating: 0/5

Do you find it difficult to integrate content into your lessons? Are you teaching your subject in a foreign language? Is creating and delivering lessons in a language that is not your students’ mother tongue challenging for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) is definitely for you. It is a method for designing lessons that integrates activity design specific to second language teaching and learning with content from either academic or non-academic subjects.

This course will teach you how to use CLIL effectively in any subject area at secondary school. We have chosen to discuss, in English, the academic subjects of Science, History, Geography, and the Arts but these methods can be applied to any domain using any foreign language. Thus, as a teacher of either an academic subject or a foreign language, you will be exposed to many concrete examples of creating content-driven lessons in a foreign language that are fun and engaging.

Through individual, pair, group, team, and whole class work and discussion, participants will experience first hand how CLIL promotes interdisciplinary learning using the four skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking). They will also learn how to select appropriate and already prepared content for second language learners and become capable of creating new content for classroom use with authentic materials from the real world of native speakers. In addition, course participants will learn how to scaffold content knowledge and language learning and adapt their activities according to students’ abilities and needs.

At the end of the course, participants will return to their schools with renewed enthusiasm, ideas, strategies and activities to integrate into their course curricula for successful and motivating CLIL lessons with their secondary school students.

All our courses in Drogheda include one guided city tour and 1 full-day excursion (usually on a Saturday)
