Title: Learning and Teaching Languages Through Content
Subtitle: A counterbalanced approach
Written By: Roy Lyster
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26LT%2018
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 18
Description:

Based on a synthesis of classroom Second Language Aquisition (SLA) research
that has helped to shape evolving perspectives of content-based instruction
since the introduction of immersion programs in Montreal more than 40 years
ago, this book presents an updated perspective on integrating language and
content in ways that engage second language learners with language across
the curriculum. A range of instructional practices observed in immersion
and content-based classrooms is highlighted to set the stage for justifying
a counterbalanced approach that integrates both content-based and
form-focused instructional options as complementary ways of intervening to
develop a learner's interlanguage system. A counterbalanced approach is
outlined as an array of opportunities for learners to process language
through content by means of comprehension, awareness, and production
mechanisms, and to negotiate language through content by means of
interactional strategies involving teacher scaffolding and feedback.
