Module 7: CLIL for your subject

Applying CLIL to your subject can be tricky. Especially if you have to figure it all out on your own.

What lessons are included in this module

  • Language in your lesson
  • 6 CLIL activities for every subject

Module 8: Curriculum planning

Preparing a single lesson is important, but a lesson is almost always part of a lesson series. This means CLIL activities can also be implemented over a longer period of time.

This does not just save you time as you do not need to create the same activities every lesson, it also creates a clear learning path for students.

What lessons are included in this module

  • Planning an effective lesson series
  • No prep time CLIL Activities

Module 9: Quality Collaboration

Just like a lesson is always part of a lesson series, a teacher is always part of an organization.

What lessons are included in this module

  • ESL within a CLIL organization
  • Cross curricular projects
  • Effective observations
  • The use of portfolios
  • CLIL in your organisation
