CLIL Unterrichtsmaterialien


ProCLIL was a project supported by the EU as a COMENIUS 2.1 action over a three-year period (10/2006-09/2009) and involved six teacher training institutions from four countries – Cyprus, Germany, Spain and Turkey. It investigated the implementation and effectiveness of CLIL as a pedagogical procedure in primary and pre-primary education with a focus on the training of school education staff. The main project aims were to develop CLIL methodology, CLIL teaching materials, to find ways to successfully implement CLIL, and to design teaching materials and a teacher training course. Another objective was the investigation of students’, teachers’, parents’ and administrators’ attitudes towards CLIL (for a detailed description of the study see Ioannou-Georgiou & Pavlou, 2010; Massler & Burmeister, 2010).
