Content-Based Language Instruction: A New Window of Opportunity in Geography Education
Hardwick, Susan W.; Davis, Robert L.
Journal of Geography, v108 n4-5 p163-173 2009
The use of content-based language instruction (CBI) offers an innovative and effective method for teaching core geographic concepts and skills while students study a second language. This article focuses on a collaborative initiative developed and tested by university and high school level geography and second-language educators. The goal of the MOSAIC project is to develop and disseminate rigorous instructional modules using CBI to reach students in language classrooms who may or may not ever enroll in a stand-alone geography course. (Contains 1 table, 2 figures and 6 notes.)
