Presentation on theme: "TEACHING PHYSICS IN ENGLISH"— Presentation transcript:


2 Patrizia Calanchini Monti – Gabriella Orlando MODULO CLIL INGLESE – SCIENZA DELLA MATERIA

3 Perché CLIL inglese - fisica?
Affrontare l’argomento del riscaldamento globale in modo approfondito – to deal thoroughly with global warming Capire quale può essere il nostro contributo a migliorare la situazione – to understand how we can personally contribute to change and improve the situation Usare 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

4 Perché usare un film? Miglioramento della abilità di comprensione orale – improving listening comprehension Documento autentico – authentic material Motivazione intrinseca fornita dal testo film – watching a film is intrinsically motivating Aspetti legati alla attualità e alla civiltà anglosassone – dealing with current events and the Anglo-saxon world

5 Patrizia Calanchini Monti – Gabriella Orlando MODULO CLIL INGLESE – SCIENZA DELLA MATERIA
Film di Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth Visione di una sequenza per volta seguita da: discussione degli argomenti affrontati nel film approfondimento delle strutture linguistiche introduzione e ampliamento del lessico specifico studio degli argomenti di Fisica collegati

6 An Inconvenient Truth Key Vocabulary
Verbs: to melt to freeze to flow to fall to drop down to go up / to increase /to rise to go down / to decrease / to fall to measure to dig up to thicken to trap to trigger to retreat to feed

7 An Inconvenient Truth Key Vocabulary
Nouns: atmosphere ice cold hemisphere water moisture equator soil famine polar caps fresh water infrared rays tilt of the earth salty water greenhouse effect rain river greenhouse gases storm sea sunbeams /radiation hurricane ocean carbon dioxide tornado glacier oxygen typhoon stream pollution flood heat deforestation drought evaporation desertification

8 An Inconvenient Truth Key Vocabulary
Adjectives: thin thick harmful harmless relentless renewable

9 An Inconvenient Truth Structures
Present continuous Present perfect Simple present and simple past passive forms Comparatives/Superlatives Zero / First and Second conditional

10 From the film The temperature increases are taking place all over the world including the oceans In the last 650,000 years CO2 has never gone up more than 300 parts per million Climate patterns on Earth have not changed much since the last ice Age 1,000 years ago.

11 From the film When there is more carbon dioxide the temperature gets warmer because it traps more heat in the atmosphere Ice 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

12 From the film As 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

13 From the film: Physics Solar system Forces and Energy
sun, planets and satellites objects in orbit the cycle of seasons Forces and Energy work and energy energy transformation calculating PE and Ke friction and braking efficiency and power energy for electricity

14 From the film: Physics Rays and Waves Thermal Effects Moving particles
Temperature Thermal conduction Convection Thermal radiation Liquids and vapours Rays and Waves Electromagnetic waves

15 Achievement 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?

16 Achievement 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.
