What are map projections? A geography CLIL / ESL lesson plan

What are map projections? A geography CLIL / ESL lesson plan

Key information: • Teaching geography in English at A2 to B1 level • Two 45-minute lessons • Student’s handouts + Teacher’s notes • English language support for both teacher and students Rationale: In these lessons, learners compare map projections to see how their view of the world can change. Learners will develop their understanding of how representing the world as a map, and how representing a 3D object as a 2D object causes distortions. The lesson provides a meaningful context to use comparatives, modals for possibility and certainty, and expressions of opinion. Content objectives: To compare and evaluate different map projections. Language objectives: To use long and short adjectives to compare different elements in a map and draw conclusions; to use modals to express possibility (could, might) and certainty (must, can’t); to use expressions of opinion such as 'I think', 'I feel', 'I suppose'. These lessons have been designed to support teachers’ and learners’ use of English in the following contexts: • bilingual education • Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) • English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) • Content-Based Instruction (CBI) • English as a Second Language (ESL) • English as a Foreign Language (EFL).
