Percorsi CLIL Anno SC. 2019-20

Percorsi CLIL  in Lingua Inglese attivati nel corrente anno scolastico 

La scelta delle discipline coinvolte nella metodologia di insegnamento CLIL si fonda  sui seguenti principi:

  • considerare le discipline caratterizzanti l’indirizzo di studio come stimolo alla motivazione;
  • fare riferimento a discipline che utilizzano una molteplicità di linguaggi, e strategie di supporto non verbali, per favorire o sostenere l’apprendimento della disciplina in L2;
  • qualificare il profilo professionale dei docenti impegnati.

Per quanto concerne le competenze specialistiche dei docenti i  percorsi attivati sono affidati a  personale docente specializzato o esperto nella metodologia CLIL con livello di competenza linguistica compreso tra il B2 e il C2 del CEFR, in linea con il profilo del docente CLIL  tracciato a livello ministeriale.CLIL I livelli di competenza Docenti

Al fine di garantire la piena realizzazione dell’attività didattica CLIL, è presente  un team CLIL di coordinamento costituto dal Dirigente scolastico, dal referente CLIL d’istituto e da docenti del Dipartimento di L2-Inglese.


Natural Sciences:

Mod: DPT LND 001 Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)- Prof.ssa Luin

RationaleThe module will focus on genome editing,  a group of technologies that give scientists the ability to change an organism's DNA. These technologies allow genetic material to be added, removed, or altered at particular locations in the genome and can be used to modify the genome of some organisms (GMOs, genetically modified organisms), in order to generate new varieties or to cancel, induce or change a characteristic of the organism.

Students will be able to explore the  applications of GMOs,  understand  their potential and assess their risks.  They will also  interact in group work and present their findings through an involving debate.

Mod: DPT LND 002 Stem Cells - Prof.ssa Luin

Rationale: Stem cells are cells with the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body; they serve as a repair system for the body

Why are doctors and scientists so excited about stem cells? Is it real that stem cells may one day be used to make cells and tissues for therapy of many diseases as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, spinal cord injury, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis?  The module will lead students to build their own knowledge and to the understanding of the  topic through inquiry-based learning strategies that prioritise their questions, ideas and analyses

Mod:DPT LND 003 Global sustainability - Prof.ssa Nichetto

Rationale: How has the homo sapiens changed Earth? Why is climate changing? Can homo  sapiens change again something on Earth? These are questions that still need to be answered; students will explore facts and try to answer these questions by building up evidences from given materials .

Mod:DPT LND 004 DNA editing - Prof.ssa Nichetto

Rationale: What does editing DNA mean? What is it for? Which is considered to be the best technique, so far? Students will research the topic and collect information  from available  studies to find out what is now the state of art of research. 

Mod:DPT LND 005 Ancient and modern biotechnologies - Prof. Baruffo

Rationale: is not just a “modern affair”. For centuries, farmers have crossbred animal and plants in an effort to produce more and better foods. Thanks to science, biotechnology accelerates this lengthy process by allowing scientists to directly select specific traits. This module will update students about the differences between old biotechnology and modern biotechnology.

Mod:DPT LND 006 Biotechnology: restriction enzymes and Gene libraries -Prof. Baruffo

Rationale: biotechnology provides breakthrough products and technologies to combat diseases, feed the hungry, use cleaner energy, reduce our environmental footprint and have safer industrial manufacturing processes. But how does genetic engineering work? In this module students will focus on the scientific tools, developed in recent decades, that enable researchers to manipulate DNA.

Mod:DPT LND 007 Global changes - Prof.ssa Godini

Rationale: Exponential growth of population, consumption of resources, increased demand of water, food and land, togather with climate changes, are all interlinked aspects of a rapidly changing planeth Earth. Student will discuss the interactions of these changes with human life and natural environment, by means of scientific data, videos and articles, taking into account the different "perspectives" and point of view.

Mod:DPT LND 008 Biotechnology - Prof.ssa Godini

Rationale: This module will focus on some aspects of biotechnology like restriction enzymes, engineered microorganisms used to produce usefull drugs and the "Crispr" technology. Student will develop a basic vocabulary in order to understand videos and short scientific articles about these rapidly growing techniques that are changing research in biology and medicine


Mod:DPT VCO 001 The use of propaganda and the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party - Prof. Calandra di Roccolino

Rationale: the module will deal with the analysis and the meaning of nazi propaganda, starting from Leni Riefenstahl's "Triumph of the Will" to Albert Speer's architecture.

Mod:DPT VCO 002 Metaethics  (consequentialism and deontology) in “On liberty”by John Stuart Mill- Prof. Calandra di Roccolino

Rationale: the module will focus on the key words of Metaethics in the deontological approach and Utilitarianism  and will be a guide  to the study of Mill's masterwork.

Motor and Sports activity Sciences 

Mod:DPT OLI 001 Warm up procedures in sports - Prof.ssa Tarabocchia

Rationale: this module will focus on the meaning and function of warming up techniques in different sport disciplines. Students will design goals and contents of team’s warm-ups working, and the outcomes will be discussed in a group discussion.

Mod:DPT OLI 002 Social inclusion/integration: ultimate frisbee anda sitting volley - Prof.ssa Tarabocchia

Rationale: in this module “Ultimate Frisbee” and “Sitting Volley” will be used as a didactical tool for a better social integration, intercultural communication and understanding of different needs at motor level.

Mod:DPT OLI 003 Health Prevention: Toxic Elements in every day products following the studies of Dr. Samuel Epstein - Prof.ssa Manzato

Rationale: the module will enable students to learn, through a “ L2 decoder key” and  roleplay techniques ,  how to recognise,   from a list of ingredients,   the nutritional elements that may damage the human immune system. They will also be able to implement strategies to mitigate against nociceptive aggressions,  identify trusted brands  and gradually develop  an  independent method for critical and informed assessment of dietary styles.

Mod:DPT OLI 004 Learning  how to conduct a Warm-Up in English for injury prevention- Connecting cognitive to motor parts of the brain and body-the function of ‘Mirror Neurons’ - Prof.ssa Manzato

Rationale: in this module students  will learn how to identify body districts and their functioning  and use verbs of motion related to activities  necessary to get mentally ready for the game ahead. Students will also learn how to  practice skills and prepare themselves for the movements they will be required to carry out during the activity. Language skills will be enhanced through roleplays  and peer activities  which will allow  students to engage in practical situations  explaining to each other, in appropriate language  and register, the correct choice of warm-up exercises and  the mistakes to avoid while, at the same time,  linking their cognitive skills to a practical dimension through the firing of mirror neurons.

Further specificationsCLIL- La lezione sensibile

Ogni percorso modulare è caratterizzato dai seguenti denominatori comuni:

▪ progressione dei contenuti e delle conoscenze e non ripetizione di elementi del curriculum svolti precedentemente in italiano

▪ veicolazione dei contenuti disciplinari in L2 attraverso testi autentici o materiale didattizzato

▪ sviluppo di competenze linguistiche attraverso la presenza di task fortemente legati al contesto disciplinare e attraverso la logica cognitiva della disciplina interessata

▪ messa in atto di abilità e strategie linguistiche utili ad affrontare contenuti disciplinari complessi anche in L1 (input comprensibile)

▪ approcci collaborativi nell’apprendimento
 e nello studio della disciplina caratterizzati fortemente  da una prospettiva di matrice interculturale.
