1 Getting started in CLIL The Basque Country Italy Bulgaria German Länder Keith Kelly

2 Looking for help

3 The CLIL approach guides language processing supports language production Teaches language learning through use Science Across the World –



6 Ideational Frameworks Flow diagrams –Sequenced thinking Historical events, timelines Instructions Processes Tabular diagrams –Characterisation Soils, their situations and descriptions Types of cells, structure, function and location Tree diagrams –Categorisation Holinotropic medical substances Typical Englishmen starbursts – combinations –Ethnic groups and their descriptions The grammar is in the diagram

7 Sequenced thinking

8 Types of listening activitiy Listen and label a diagram/picture/map/graph/chart Listen and fill in a table Listen and make notes on specific information (dates, figures, times, teachers lecture on a topic) Listen and rearrange information/reorder information Listen and identify location/speakers/places Listen and label the stages of a process/instructions/sequences of a text Listen and fill in the gaps in a text The semi-script Geddes, 78

9 Types of Speaking Activities Question loops – questions and answers, terms and definitions, halves of sentences, can be exploited to create a question loop. Info gap – students must speak to each other to fill in the missing information from their diagram with questions sheet to support. Trivia search – three things you know and three things you want to know with support for making questions. Word guessing games – Teams have one minute to guess as many words as possible and get one point for each correct guess. Class surveys – use questionnaires to guide pupils in asking set questions of their classmates. 20 Questions – provide language support frame for questions. Speaker can only say yes or no in answer and pupils only get 20 questions to get the answer right. Making presentations/talking from a prompt – instruct pupils to present information from a visual using language support handout. Support sheets are key

10 School conditions Management support CLIL school space, storage Use the walls Be informed about what you need and ask for it! –Spanish Bilingual Project –Council of Europe and CLIL

11 Teacher Conditions Willingness to learn Think small and manageable Language level Develop skills in materials design –ELT advantage –collaborate Take a peek Get wired up!

12 Biology around the World Bulgaria China UK

13 Getting it right Hounslow History Leicester Science


15 Learner conditions Working at the learners level –Language Instruments for guidance and support –Content not too easy Creating a positive environment –Reaction speed

16 Material conditions None available – adaptation Happy marriage SYCD – FACTWorld - Ethical English, Share Your World (and yahoogroups) Science Across the World Language Support Units in the UK Enchanted Learning (for visuals) BBC Learning –History, Maths … …and dont forget the Basques!

19 Chemistry in Our LivesChemistry in Our Lives topic, students prepare their own chemical product and share their methodology with others. Bright pink nail polish made from gumamela flowers in the Philippines and laundry soap from vegetable oil and banana stalks in Singapore. Practical work

20 Training conditions Share and discuss with peers Contact experienced colleagues –Bulgaria CLIL TT project Access to other expertise – UK providers – NILE (Comenius funding) – If its not there – DIY!

21 NILE Integrating content and language – what is CLIL? CLIL contexts around the world Curriculum demands of CLIL Identifying core subject language The language of thinking CLIL task design Providing language support Teaching vocabulary in CLIL Developing listening in CLIL Working with texts and words Teaching subject-specific writing Speaking and CLIL PD for the CLIL teacher Drama and music Classroom language Error correction Peer observation – watching teachers teach CLIL CLIL lesson planning Assessment in CLIL ICT Project work Classroom presentations Learning strategies School policy, administration and management in CLIL Networks and resources

22 Expectations Assessment –Dont test what you havent taught –Basque samples Be ready to answer the question why?



25 The future Extreme measures Potential for disaster –Children suffer Think small Keep a healthy professional attitude to a new trend –ELT has a wealth to offer and a lot to gain Keep in touch! Keith Kelly
