Developing FL literacy in CLIL context (LIT4CLIL)

Literacy | CLIL | EFL | Primary Education

The project Developing FL literacy in CLIL context (LIT4CLIL) aims at developing and testing CLIL approach for primary EFL (years 3 to 5). The approach to be developed is based on the assumption that students need to develop their literacy skills in the foreign language (in this case, English) as much as in the mother tongue if they are to study content subjects through this foreign language.

The project designs and pilots a training course in literacy-based EFL teaching in which 10 teachers coming from the partner schools in each country will take part, who will then put the approach to language teaching itself to the test by designing, implementing and evaluating 10 units of work for EFL in grades 3 to 5 in transnational teams. Once the training course and the implementation of the literacy units have been evaluated, they will be transformed into a MOOC, thus making the training in literacy-based foreign language teaching available to teachers worldwide. The final stage of the project is designing a transnational FL literacy module that will be taught at partner universities as part of the Master’s programme.

The project aims to develop a teaching approach to English that has the potential of changing foreign language teaching as such, and of contributing to the development of a strong, cross-curricular approach to literacy development in schools. This, in turn, has the potential to place literacy development right at the centre of primary education curricula, which ultimately “is likely to significantly remove barriers to further education and training, and reduce social inequalities”. (EU High Level Literacy Group of Experts on Literacy 2012, p. 26)

Foreseen Outcomes:

  • Needs analysis questionnaire about literacy teaching
  • Report on dominant EFL teaching approach in CLIL, conceptualization of literacy and prior training
  • Planning grid for literacy-based teaching units
  • Pilot online course on literacy-based foreign language teaching
  • Literacy-based teaching units
  • Evaluation tool for pilot on-line course on literacy-based language teaching
  • Repository of collected materials for literacy teaching
  • Transnational modules for the Master’s programmes
  • MOOC on literacy teaching
