The knowledge base of CLIL teaching in multilingual primary education settings

This report is about content and language integrated learning (CLIL) in multilingual primary classrooms. 

While in theory CLIL offers many opportunities for inclusive education in multilingual settings, questions remain as to how integrated language teaching can be realised, and what teacher knowledge is required for this. This research used a CLIL Teaching Wall activity and interviews with UK and Dutch primary school teachers to capture teacher knowledge underlying decision-making in actual multilingual classrooms. The report presents a framework of CLIL teacher knowledge that emerged from this work.

The report is free to download in pdf format below.
