Integrating Language and Content Instruction: A Framework to Guide Cross-Disciplinary Team Teaching.
Stewart, Timothy
An approach to integrating classroom instruction of subject area content and a second language is outlined. In the integrated classroom, teams of language and content specialists bring their expertise to course planning, teaching, and assessment, and work together in the same classroom for each session. The approach was constructed by drawing on theory concerning the integration of content and language instruction and on a method for intensive interdisciplinary collaboration. This method links text structure to knowledge structure (schema) to help learners organize, and therefore understand and apply, new information. Application of this approach is illustrated in a personal experience at Miyazaki International College (Japan), an institution dedicated to producing liberally educated students who are functionally literate in both English and Japanese. The instructional unit described is part of an introductory course in political science. Contains 52 references. (MSE)
