Eric.ed.gov – Turn On Units: English as a Second Language Content Area Curriculum in Math, Science, and Computer Science for Grades K-6.

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

Thematic units, the basis of organization for this guide, work in many ways toward the dual goals of language and content area instruction. The thematic units presented here address topics of high interest to limited English-proficient (LEP) students, including: robots; using a computer data base; activities with plants; building terrariums; architecture; and cooking. In order to provide LEP students with an active role in the learning process, the units incorporate many opportunities for them to play games, participate in movement activities, enter into role playing, create art works and constructions, cook and manipulate materials. To bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world, the units incorporate field trips and other activities that provide LEP students with motivational experiences to facilitate their learning of the new culture as well as the new language. To help LEP students toward full literacy, the units use a whole language approach, including many experiences with rich literature, and opportunities to develop writing skills. In addition, the units are planned to incorporate the language, math, and science objectives of the Georgia Basic Curriculum. Each of the units in the guide includes an introductory statement of purpose, learning objectives, key concepts, a brief outline of activities, grade levels for which the unit is intended, and a list of suggested resources. Each unit addresses a range of several grade levels. Georgia Basic Curriculum objectives for each activity are displayed on a grid. Each activity includes recommended grouping and teacher role, a list of materials needed, detailed procedures, suggestions for evaluation, and possible extensions of the activity. (KR)

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
