As part of the project, an online tool was developed with which student teachers and teachers of all subjects and types of schools can search for and download teaching methods for language-sensitive teaching free of charge. The handouts not only explain the methods themselves, but also provide information on possible variations and how to incorporate multilingualism.
Users of the online tool can filter the methods according to the linguistic competence area to be promoted, the language action to be promoted, the age group of the students, the time frame, and the social form of the planned teaching unit. Depending on the fit to these criteria, the offered methods appear larger, smaller or not at all.
The tool is available on the website of the MI.
The project related to the preliminary work done by the DIE, where an application for course planning was developed in the context of advanced training. The experience gathered there will be used for enabling students and teachers the access to a low-threshold collection of methods for planning language-sensitive lessons.
