Construction course - High School CLIL activity
Modern and Contemporary Architecture
The work has been developed focusing in the implementation of specific language, giving to students the possibility to improve the understanding of specific text and to describe architecture with appropriate language. We have worked starting from the biography of architects first, exploring main characters of the architecture with the used technology.
Main architects have been investigated through articles and videos, with interview in original language:
- Frank Lloyd Wright
- Le Corbusier
- Richard Meyer
- Norman Foster
- Zaha Hadid
- Frank O. Gehry
- Francis Kéré, 2022 Pritzker Architecture Prize
Original interview puts the difficulty to hear different pronunciation of English, improving the understanding.
The methodoly applied for the CLIL activity focused not just only in the direction of the specific language for surveyors but also for European young people that will move around the world, exploring cities and cultures and architecture as well.
