CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) has emerged since the millennium as a major trend in education. Written by Do Coyle, Philip Hood and David Marsh and drawing on their experience of CLIL in secondary schools, primary schools and English language schools across Europe, this book gives a comprehensive overview of CLIL. It summarises the theory which underpins the teaching of a content subject through another language and discusses its practical application, outlining the key directions for the development of research and practice. This book acknowledges the uncertainty many teachers feel about CLIL, because of the requirement for both language and subject knowledge, while providing theoretical and practical routes towards successful practice for all.
The Roles of Language in CLIL provides a theoretically-based approach to the integration of language and content in primary and secondary contexts addressed to a range of stakeholders in Content and Language Integrated Learning. Adopting the framework of systemic functional linguistics, this book raises practitioners' awareness of how language functions in CLIL. Drawing on their wide experience as CLIL educators and researchers, the authors explore data collected in real CLIL classrooms from two interrelated perspectives: the CLIL classroom as an interactional context for developing language and content, and the genres and registers through which the meanings of the different academic subjects are enacted. From the analysis of this corpus of data, the authors provide a rich description of how CLIL students' language works and may be expected to develop.
Uncovering CLIL is a practical and informative handbook which will be of use to teachers of all levels of experience. It examines language and content teaching, and reveals how the two can go hand in hand, giving examples of how to use CLIL at primary, secondary and vocational levels. Packed with practical ideas and suggestions, it is the essential companion for CLIL teachers. This book acts as an ideal guide for teachers getting started in CLIL, and existing practitioners in search of new ideas. The book presents a broad overview of CLIL essentials for teachers at both primary and secondary levels and contains a wide range of practical ideas and activities that work in the CLIL classrom.
