Three Men in a Boat(to say nothing of the dog) through CLIL British Council, January,19,2012
Text in the language classroom TALO- text as a linguistic object TAVI- text as a vehicle for information TASP- text as a springboard for production
TALO Are written especially with a pedagogical purpose in mind Could be authentic texts the teacher has chosen because they contain lots of examples of a particular feature of language Could be authentic texts “adapted “to contain or highlight certain features of language
TAVI Can be chosen because they are motivating Can be ones that the teacher would hope the students would like to read anyway Can be authentic texts
TASP Using a text as a springboard for another task A reading or writing task Doing a role play based on the text Writing a similar text about something the students know Writing a response to the text
Any other suggestions to explore the text? Content Language Integrated Learning
Multiple Focus Supporting language learning in language classes Supporting content learning Integrating several subjects Organizing learning through cross-curricular themes and projects Supporting reflection on the learning process
Safe and enriching learning environment Using routine activities and discourse Displaying language and content through the classroom Building student confidence to experiment with language and content Guiding access to authentic materials Increasing student learning awareness
Authenticity Letting the students ask for the language they need Maximizing the accommodation of student interests Making a regular connection between learning and the students’ lives Using current materials from the media and other sources
Active learning Students communicating more than the teacher Students help set content, language and learning skills outcomes Students evaluate progress in achieving learning outcomes Favouring peer co-operative work Teachers acting as facilitators
