440 – Proficiency in CLIL in Secondary Science

Course Description:

The course is primarily designed for teachers who have successfully completed the introduction course. It is based on project-like sessions when participants make secondary lesson plans for the year in groups, present their ideas and deliver small sections of their plans.

Throughout the course, there will be a progression from trainer-led tasks to project-like sessions, where participants present their ideas and deliver small sections of their plans. In addition, there will be a move from whole group sessions to working in groups based on school subjects and later even these will be broken up into pairs/threes to allow participants to work with secondary course books, which are relevant for them.
