Il corso si propone di illustrare alcuni esempi di tecniche didattiche della metodologia CLIL applicate all’insegnamento dell’economia, della politica, della legge e di tematiche attinenti alla criminalità nelle scuole secondarie di secondo grado. Le videolezioni proporranno una serie di attività didattiche in lingua inglese su alcuni argomenti attinenti alle discipline sopra menzionate, da eseguire con gli studenti, attraverso il lavoro in coppia e in gruppo e l’uso di materiali iconografici per lo sviluppo di ricerche con la flipped classroom. Alla fine di ogni argomento trattato, verranno proposte esercitazioni di rinforzo delle quattro abilità linguistiche di lettura, scrittura, ascolto e conversazione. Sono previsti webinar in cui il docente incontrerà gli studenti in streaming.
