①「日本文化と漢字のCLIL」(in Japanese)


アメリカ人の初級・上級2グループに対して、日本文化と漢字をCLIL的に紹介した実践報告を行いました。CLIL的活動では、カードマッチングをした上で読解教材を読む等いくつかのプロセスを経るため、定着が非常によかったです。 漢字は、初級グループでは象形文字や指事文字等わかりやすいものを紹介したため、楽しんで学習していました。一方、上級グループでは本人たちの希望を受け、鳥の漢字をCLIL的に紹介しました。そして、鳥の慣用句の意味を、イラストを見ながら推測する活動も行いました。推測の段階で上級者の認知過程が観察されたのは大変興味深かったです。というのも、教師として学習者がどこで躓いているかは把握しやすいですが、どういう認知プロセスを経て理解できるかを知ることは普段なかなかできないことだからです。

②"Let's Talk Biology - English as the Language of Science in the Biology Classroom" (in English)

Nina Meyerhoeffer, Ph.D (Johannes-Gutenberg University Mainz,Germany / 日本学術振興会外国人特別研究員・上智大学)

English is the predominant medium that connects all fields of natural sciences around the world. Adequate English communication skills in the scientific register are thus an important tool that schools must provide their students with in order to prepare them for higher education and professional life. Using newly developed CLIL-based materials and methods, the Let's Talk Biology studies introduced English as the language of the natural sciences into German biology classrooms. Participating teachers taught their classes using a combination of English and German and students’ content knowledge gains and motivation for the units were assessed. To demonstrate the utility value of English for global communication, students also interacted with international science experts in content-based video exchanges. The bilingually taught students achieved the same content knowledge gains as control classes who had been taught solely in their native language. Average motivation ratings in the participating classes were positive and the students were open for further bilingual instruction in the future. In an ongoing study, the science materials and methods have been adapted to Japanese learners and are currently being tested as a CLIL topic in English language courses at a Japanese public high school.
