Linking Language and Content Instruction in the Social Sciences.
Hui, Max; Leung, Lily
Hong Kong Papers in Linguistics and Language Teaching, v16 p85-92 Sep 1993
This paper begins with a brief review of some of the controversies about linking language and content instruction in English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. It then describes an attempt at fostering such a link through collaboration between the language teachers and the content teachers in an Academic Communication and Study Skills course at the University of Hong Kong. While the collaboration has resulted in the production of six discipline-specific language modules, it has given rise to a number of issues in course administration, staff development, and student assessment. Drawing on the experiences involved in designing these two modules, these issues and their practical implications are discussed. (JL)
