CLIL and Mathematics
Transcript of CLIL and Mathematics
What is CLIL ?
CLIL is an approach or method which integrates the teaching of content from the curriculum with the teaching of non-native language. It is increasingly important in our global, technological society, where knowledge of another language helps learners to develop skills in their first or home language and also helps them develop skills to communicate ideas about science, arts, and technology to people around the world.
How can I incorporate this into my classes?
Remember the other CLIL?
CLIL is referred to as having “4Cs” as components
This is because curricular content leads language learning.
For example, learning about mathematics often involves learners in making a hypothesis and then proving whether this hypothesis is true or not.
Maths teachers should be aware of the language the learners need to think through this process, make their hypothesis and then provide their proof.
If a whole number ends in 0 or 5, then we can divide it by 5 ( it is divisible by 5)
135 ends in 5, which implies that we can divide it by 5 ( which implies that it is divisible by 5)
The curricular subjects taught in CLIL.
What is the maths topic ? e.g. algebra, ratio, linear graphs, ..
What maths language will learners communicate during the lesson e.g. the language of comparison for comparing and contrasting graphs (increasing STT)
Is there a cultural focus in the lesson, e.g. do learners from different language backgrounds calculate in the same way ? What symbols do they use ? In multilingual contexts, it is important to take time to talk about methods used in different cultures represented by learners in the classroom.
What thinking skills are demanding of learners ? e.g. identifying, classifying, reasoning, generalising
What is the role of language in CLIL ?
This is the vocabulary, grammatical structures and functional language for specific subjects. Learners require this language to be able to understand the subject and communicate ideas.
Learners need to know the everyday, less formal language which is used in our subjects.
Learners need to produce both
content – obligatory language
content – compatible language
Content is the first word in CLIL
Enjoy the challenge of teaching CLIL
and enjoy reflecting on your teaching : )
