Workshop: “Framing a CLIL Unit: Strategies for Building Language Skills with Content Knowledge”
American Center and the English Language Office of the U.S. Embassy invites you to the workshop by Emily Austin Thrush, Professor of Applied Linguistics and Technical Writing at the University of Memphis.
The presenter will show a framework for taking any topic in a content-area class, and building lessons that will simultaneously build language skills and content knowledge. This starts with identifying the characteristics of academic language, and both the content and general vocabulary needed for the lesson. Activities will lead the students through texts to understand how to reconstruct references, unravel complex syntactic structures, and extract information from dense passages. The framework includes activities to build speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. The presenter will also discuss authentic assessment of a CLIL unit.
Emily Austin Thrush is a Professor of Applied Linguistics and Technical Writing at the University of Memphis. She has co-authored several books in the McGraw-Hill Interactions/Mosaics series, and has conducted teacher training sponsored by the U.S. State Department and the Fulbright organization around the world, including Lebanon, Brazil, Peru, Japan, Mexico, Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. She spent the 2000-2001 academic year in Mexico as a Senior Fulbright scholar. Her recent publications have been about integrating content areas, especially STEM subjects, with language teaching.
