“Content and Language Integrated Learning” (CLIL) teaching in science: a didactic analysis of a case study



Our article deals with a didactic analysis of the teaching of a non-linguistic subject, physics and chemistry, in English, wuthin the framework of CLIL programs. We describe, from the case study of a science teacher, the articulation between scientific knowledge and language knowledge. From the analysis of video extracts of a lesson about Rutherford's experiment, we produce a description of the asynchronous advance of the different contents at stake. We propose at the end of the article recommendations for the training of teachers who teach in CLIL programs.
