Sammanfattning (abstract):
Content and Language Integrated Learning, CLIL, is an umbrella term covering a range of educational models where another language than students’, and often also teachers’, first language (L1) is used as the medium of instruction in content subjects (Coyle, 2008; Dalton-Puffer, 2011; Marsh, 2000). The aim of this paper is to present findings from a longitudinal research project on CLIL in Sweden. The investigation was carried out at three schools, each representing an idiosyncratic CLIL model. Students (N=240) and teachers (N=15) were studied from various perspectives during three years, resulting in empirical data such as student receptive and productive L1 (Swedish) and L2 (English) proficiency measures, and student and teacher interviews and observations. The paper describes CLIL policies and practices at the three schools, and how language progress and proficiency are tested and assessed in a) the respective schools, and b) the research project, and how students’ language proficiency compares across schools as well as with non-CLIL peers’. It seems to be rather the norm than the exception that CLIL policies and practices vary, across schools as well as across countries (Cenoz, Genesee, & Gorter, 2013). However, it is of importance to stakeholders to know what the effects are of different policies and practices employed. The findings presented here illustrate that policy and practice at the three schools indeed have an effect on student performance. Thus, this presentation fills a void in the CLIL research where the aspect of policy and practice previously has not been sufficiently accounted for.
