Content and Language Integrated Learning: Blend Language Learning with History ShellyTerrell.com
Planning Lessons with the 4Cs • Content- How can we make the material more accessible to our language learners? What might they already know about the topic? • Communication- What vocabulary will students need to use? What grammar structures will they use? • Cognition- What thinking tasks will they do? Classifying, identifying, etc. • Culture- What cultural considerations can you make?
Content knowledge? English level?
