2Patrizia Calanchini Monti – Gabriella Orlando MODULO CLIL INGLESE – SCIENZA DELLA MATERIA
3Perché CLIL inglese - fisica? Affrontare l’argomento del riscaldamento globale in modo approfondito – to deal thoroughly with global warmingCapire quale può essere il nostro contributo a migliorare la situazione – to understand how we can personally contribute to change and improve the situationUsare l’inglese in nuovi contesti scientifici, in quanto è la lingua della scienza – to use English in scientific contexts, as English is the international language of Science
4Perché usare un film?Miglioramento della abilità di comprensione orale – improving listening comprehensionDocumento autentico – authentic materialMotivazione intrinseca fornita dal testo film – watching a film is intrinsically motivatingAspetti legati alla attualità e alla civiltà anglosassone – dealing with current events and the Anglo-saxon world

10From the filmThe temperature increases are taking place all over the world including the oceansIn the last 650,000 years CO2 has never gone up more than 300 parts per millionClimate patterns on Earth have not changed much since the last ice Age 1,000 years ago.
11From the filmWhen there is more carbon dioxide the temperature gets warmer because it traps more heat in the atmosphereIce reflects the sunrays while ocean absorbs it. So if there is less ice and more water, the water temperature gets higher and this speeds up the melting of the ice.Today the annual average temperature is 58 F. If it increases of 5 degrees, it will be 1 degree at the Equator and 12 degrees at the Pole
12From the filmAs the ice melts, the oceans receive the Sun energy instead and more than 90% is absorbed . That’s why there is a faster build up of heat at the North Pole than everywhere else in the world, with planetary effects.Ice on Greenland and Antarctica are retreating. If half of Greenland and of Antarctica broke up and melted the maps of the world would have to be redrawn because many coastal areas worldwide would be under water

15Achievement Test English -Physics 1. What is the greenhouse effect and why is it called so?2. What are the most important greenhouse gases?3. In the film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ we are shown the graphs of temperature in the last 50 years. What can we see? Why is there a cyclical increase and decrease of temperature every year?4. What were scientists able to measure by examining the ice cores dug in Antarctica?
16Achievement Test English -Physics 5. Describe what will happen to our cities if the temperature increases by 10 C°.6. Why should we buy fruit and vegetables produced in the area where we live?7. The temperature in Chicago today is 80 F. How many degrees Celsius is that? Calculate.
