This module will examine the theory and practice underpinning the integration of language, literacy, mathematics and scientific enquiry across the curriculum and will explore ways of developing conceptual knowledge and understanding through a cross-curricular approach and the integration of other subjects into these subject lessons. The development of language and literacy in both English and Gaeilge will be studied in this module. The use of Content and Language Integrated learning (CLIL) in the teaching of Gaeilge will be explored.
In terms of Language and Literacy, Mathematics and Scientific Enquiry, this module further develops students’ understanding and application of relevant theories for the effective linkage, integration and differentiation of language, mathematics and scientific enquiry in teaching and learning.
