Content teachers’ language awareness: Exploring teacher training options

This project aims to test teacher training tools for content and language integration in secondary-level subject classes.

Using surveys, video recorded observations of four training workshops, and focus groups with 50 pre- and in-service history and geography teachers in France, we are investigating:

1. What features of teacher language awareness training tools do teachers perceive as having a positive impact on their ability to attend to language in their content teaching?

2. How does teachers’ subject-specific language awareness manifest itself during and after the PD intervention?

3. What are teachers’ perceptions regarding the impact of the tools on their students’ subject-specific learning?

Principal Investigator: Dr. Susan Ballinger

Co-investigator: Jérôme Béliard, Université de Nantes

Funding source: Internal Social Sciences and Humanities Development Grant, McGill University

Project Update: Currently in our 1st year (2019-2020)
