Publications

This page brings together a number of resources I've written on CLIL.


Macmillan CLIL

I write regularly on Macmillan's www.onestopenglish.com website. If you visit the CLIL section of the site, you will find a lot of resources and articles on CLIL.

Your CLIL
Your CLIL is a curriculum language audit for Geography and Science. My idea here is to map out the key general academic language of these subjects and make it available in reference lists for the teacher. This produced a range of language and thinking functions from Geography and Science (hypothesis, cause-effect, etc) Most of the lists are accompanied by a context lesson for download.

Keith’s Corner
I opened Anglia School in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in 2012. This is the diary of my CLIL school. It's not just our story, it's also a rich resource of ideas for working with very young children in English.

Articles

Ingredients for Successful CLIL
I wrote an article on Ingredients for Successful CLIL as part of a visit to Uzbekhistan to give a plenary talk at a conference to teachers who were being encouraged to teach through English.
This article has been published on www.learnenglish.com along with a webinar on the topic and a survey questionnaire which you may want to download and fill in. If you do, send it to me so I can add it to the results.

I wrote the English CLIL section of this book for the Lithuanian ministry of education as part of a project of ongoing training for CLIL teachers in Lithuania. It’s a handbook on CLIL.
