Teaching content and knowledge of English simultaneously is becoming increasingly common in German schools. This course will introduce students to various strategies, techniques and resources for teaching other subjects in English, examining issues you are likely to face as a CLIL teacher. The course will provide both practice at and language feedback on Content and Language Integrated Learning, including task and lesson planning and implementation, and resource development (using translated German-language and English-language materials). It will also look at ways of teaching English literature and culture to students at various levels.
As part of the assessment, each student will develop linguistic and topic-based materials for a 20 minute mini-lesson of their own design and teach it to the rest of the group, to be followed by a discussion of relevant didactic and linguistic issues. This lesson will either be based on students’ second subject or on Anglophone culture. This course is assessed via a portfolio comprising peer and tutor review of your lesson and materials, your reflection on the lesson as taught, and an in-class essay.
The course is part of admission "MM Sprachpraxis Set 1".
