Sammanfattning (abstract):
Abstract, the LEA-project. The Language Educator Awareness (LEA) Project has over the past two years, under the auspices of the Council of Europe, worked on creating materials and activities to raise awareness among teachers(-to-be) about the fact that – regardless of what they “officially” teach – they are all language educators as well, indirectly teaching the language of instruction. Increasingly, in classrooms across Europe, we find a student body that is linguistically heterogeneous. This requires that teachers be equipped with tools to meet the needs of all pupils and to work in ways that promote both subject matter learning and language skills. This is a win-win situation. The pupils learn not only the curriculum content but also the school/majority language, and preferably develop their first language as well to an adult proficiency level. Content learning of any kind is in peril if the language used in the classroom is incomprehensible to the learner. The dual purpose of the LEA project is thus provide awareness raising and language-promoting materials for pre-service and in-service training. In addition, activities aimed at developing positive attitudes towards cultural diversity, most of which can be readily adapted for use in a variety of classrooms. This may in turn give rise to questions about the normative cultural view that is often a product of the majority perspective.
