Bilinguale Module in der Grundschule

Integriertes Inhalts- und Sprachlernen im Fächerverbund Mensch, Natur und Kultur


Sabrina Bechler

Bilinguale Module können, neben dem gewöhnlich nur zweistündigen Englischunterricht in der Grundschule, zusätzlichen Kontakt zur englischen Sprache ermöglichen. In dieser Arbeit werden Argumente für ihre Erteilung erörtert sowie der Fächerverbund Mensch, Natur und Kultur (MeNuK), der Heimat- und Sachunterricht, Musik, Bildende Kunst und Textiles Werken vereint, auf seine Eignung für bilinguales Lehren und Lernen geprüft. Anhand von Unterrichtsbeobachtungen, Leitfadeninterviews mit SchülerInnen und Lehrkräften sowie der Analyse von Unterrichtsmaterialien werden Chancen und Grenzen bilingualer MeNuK-Module aufgezeigt. Davon ausgehend werden Überlegungen zur Durchführung und Weiterentwicklung angestellt. Ein Modell legt dar, wie bilinguale Module in der Praxis umgesetzt werden können.

Language Learning is a field which bridges the gap between the research conducted within Psycholinguistics and the applied research within Foreign Language Didactics. For a long time, these two fields were regarded as separate disciplines, and the emphasis lay on their differences. However, just as there has been a gradual convergence between the concepts of language acquisition and language learning, over the past few years Psycholinguistics and Foreign Language Didactics have also been moving closer together. While Psycholinguistics is taking a growing interest in the classroom context in which language learning takes place, Foreign Language Didactics have fully embraced empirical research which sheds light on the linguistic phenomena found in the interactions within the classroom.

The series Inquiries in Language Learning (Forschungen zu Psycholinguistik und Fremdsprachendidaktik) aims to reflect this development. Since the areas of intersection between these two research fields have a high level of interdisciplinarity, the contributions to this series are relevant in many different ways for educators and researchers who are concerned with language learning. On the one hand, good foreign language or second language teaching requires teachers whose methodological and pedagogical decisions are based on a sound knowledge of language acquisition theory. Furthermore, foreign language textbooks should have a solid empirical foundation. On the other hand, the interpretation of linguistic data requires familiarity with the types of classroom activities and rituals that shape the various learning processes. After all, psycholinguistic research design must attend to the technicalities of classroom teaching and learning...
