During the meeting on 8-9 February 2018 in Graz the coordination team members decided on the layout and content of a new online resources platform. All teaching materials produced in the course of this project will be freely accessible online and include e.g.
- tips on how to define the language goals of a subject lesson;
- examples of scaffolding techniques to bridge the gap between everyday language (BICS) and academic language (CALP); as well as
- self-assessment grids for teachers and students.
The team also defined the profile of participants of the forthcoming network meeting on 18-19 October 2018. Teachers who have agreed to pilot the project materials in schools will feedback on their experiences.
Are you a subject teacher of 12/13 year old students with migration background and have an interest in collaborating with a European team in the development of teaching materials? If you are interested to participate, please contact Marita Härmälä, project coordinator (email@example.com) for more information on how to get involved. The working languages of the network meeting will be English and French. If you are invited to the meeting, the European Centre for Modern Languages of the Council of Europe will cover your travel and subsistence costs.
