Tipo de Ítem:masterThesis
Primary education is a vital moment for kids to start second language learning. This means that teachers have a great responsibility to guide students through the process of helping them to become language users of that language. However, this is a process that is constantly affected by either the lack of teacher training on language teaching or the lack of skills of teachers in the second language. Therefore, there is an increasing necessity of creating training programs that help future primary teachers to improve their skills in language teaching at the same time that they improve their level in the L2. In this sense, the aim of this intervention proposal is to provide pre-service teachers of Primary Education program at tertiary education with a teacher training course in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) through English. This course has been designed to promote knowledge about the CLIL approach and development in communicative competence in L2 with special focus on oral communication. For the design of the didactic units suggested in this intervention proposal the 4 Cs model (content, cognition, communication and culture), provided by Coyle (2010), was followed. In addition to this, this proposal is designed on the ground of a theoretical framework based on oral communication where the positive correlation between CLIL and communicative competence has been proved in different studies. Furthermore, the differences between CLIL and EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction), which is a common approach used to teach content in English at tertiary education, are also described, being the amount of language support that CLIL provides learners with the most significant distinction. Finally, this proposal hopes to open more similar initiatives at tertiary education implementing the CLIL approach throughout many other teaching programs so as to promote professional profiles of teachers who are experts in their fields with high language commands in L2 that ultimately will impact the development of future primary students.
