Would CLIL fit into a constructivist perspective? The importance of good questions. By Marta Braylan

Many CLIL projects or units would fit into a constructivist perspective if they were seriously "meaning oriented". One of the most common errors of some publications that present themselves under the  "CLIL" umbrella is that they don't offer real problems or questions to  be solved by the students. In those cases, information is just correlated around a certain "topic".

Arriving to integration through a good leading question is one of the first important steps to make when planning a CLIL didactic unit or project.

Jerome Bruner said: "The art of asking provoking questions is at least as important as that of providing clear answers [...], and the art of setting those questions to good use and keeping
them alive is as important as the first two."

 

Here are some tips to come up with a good question:
 

-Avoid simple “yes-no” questions
-The question will need reasoning and some research to be answered
-It will relate to curricular guidelines and to students´ lives
-It will motivate students to read, write, think and speak

 

Some examples: 

Can the world feed 10 billion people?

Do revolutions always work?
Do all animals have hearts?
Why do animals travel?
Why did humans lose their fur?

 

Constructivism provides a strong rationale for content-based curricula such as CLIL, since it is holistically oriented and meaning seeking based.
Then, LET'S START OUR CLIL PROJECTS WITH A GOOD QUESTION!!!!

Bloomin' Apps

Kathy was one of the first teachers who offered internet based assistance to teachers.  She has always been at the head of the edtech pack and this latest rendition of her work is her usual high quality interpretation of how students learn.

She states: However, I was recently reflecting (again) on the triangular shape the Bloom's taxonomies utilize.  Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes up and down the categories as they create new knowledge, I was thinking another type of image might be more explanatory.

Here is my first draft of the idea of the "interlocking of the cognitive processes".

Más de un centenar de profesores asistieron a los IV Encuentros de Profesores de Español de Alberta, que se celebraron en la Universidad de Calgary el pasado 27 de abril. 

Melissa Valdés's insight:

Al acto de inauguración asistieron Waldemar Riemer, Director Programas de Lenguas Extranjeras del Departamento de Educación y Elizabeth Montes, Jefe de Departamento de Español, Francés e Italiano de la Universidad de Calgary. La doctora Ann de León de la Universidad de Alberta abrió los encuentros con una ponencia y, a continuación, tuvieron lugar 15 talleres basados en aspectos prácticos de la enseñanza de lengua española y cultura española y latinoamericana, así como de la enseñanza integrada de lengua y contenidos en inglés y español.
En el acto de inauguración la asesora de Educación hizo entrega de una beca para asistir a un curso de verano en una universidad española, que concede La Consejería de Educación de la Embajada de España a un profesor de la provincia de Alberta.
