Ścieżki międzyprzedmiotowe na lekcji języka angielskiego

Ktoś powiedział, że angielski może być nudny?

Nic bardziej mylnego niż przekonanie, że lekcje języka angielskiego to ciągłe poruszanie się wokół nudnych tekstów dotyczących sposobu spędzania wakacji czy rutynowego dnia znanych osób.

Wielu nauczycieli języka angielskiego realizuje treści programowe w oparciu o ścieżki międzyprzedmiotowe. Jest to wielka okazja do wzbudzenia zainteresowania uczniów językiem przez przeniesienie ich uwagi na treść, która poszerzy zakres wiadomości o innym przedmiocie przy wykorzystaniu języka obcego. Często problemem staje się „baza”, na podstawie której uczący mógłby przeprowadzić takie zajęcia. Brak pomysłów, niekiedy desperackie szukanie materiałów w sieci – to sytuacje, z jakimi borykają się nauczyciele chcący przygotować ciekawe zajęcia o zintegrowanej treści.

W numerze 1 „Anglofana” z 2006 r. ukazał się artykuł na temat integrowania języka i treści (Content and Language Integrated Learning), w którym przedstawiliśmy przykład lekcji biologii integrującej język i treści. Dziś prezentujemy przykład lekcji historii.

The Vikings

The first Viking raids, commencing about 80 years earlier, had been hitand- run affairs. A few shiploads of these huge and brawny men would suddenly appear out of the sea mists. They would pillage at will, mercilessly cutting down all opposition, then disappear over the waters as swiftly as they had come. But Ivar the Boneless had higher ambitions: he meant to conquer England and make that fertile, well-watered land his own. Ivar embarked with his men and their arms in a fleet of dragon-prowed ships of war and sailed for three days across the North Sea. When he made his landfall on the coast of Kent, the overawed inhabitants desperately tried to buy peace from the Vikings. “And the people of Kent promised them money for that peace,” related the historians of the day in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. “And under cover of the peace and promise of money, the Viking army stole away inland by night and ravaged all eastern Kent, for they knew that they would seize more money by secret plunder than by peace.”

... In all this the Vikings gained immense booty. But they were far more than latter-day barbarians, content merely to plunder and burn. As shrewd and intelligent as they were brave and brawny, they were builders of cities and founders of states, writers of poetry and givers of laws. The Vikings were supreme traders as well, and bold and tenacious explorers who ventured across distant oceans. Indeed, not since the golden age of the Roman Empire had any people so powerfully stamped the Western world with their personality and purpose.
(from The Vikings by Robert Wernick)
