1987) approach CLIL by building on the identification of the subject-specific uses of vocabulary and discourse expressions. Enright and McCloskey (1988) propose the Integrated Language Teaching Model, which is based on some research-based assumptions, such as students’ collaborative work, holistic approach to the teaching of language skills, use of a socially supportive environment, or curriculum development around students’ interests, among others. Martin (1990), Gianelly (1997), and Stoller and Grabe (1987) offer interesting ways of organizing the CLIL syllabus in terms of thematic modules and units.

For that purpose, cognitive challenge, motivation, and contextual supports must be infused in the instruction, not only in immersion programmes but also in all content-based teaching and bilingual education. Contextual supports include: ⋅ Activating students’ prior knowledge and building background knowledge (through the L1 where necessary). g. through paraphrase, repetition, demonstration, or gestures). ⋅ The use of graphic organizers to transmit conceptual content. ⋅ Hands-on activities in content areas such as science, mathematics, and social studies.

Mohan’s Knowledge Framework Mohan’s (1986) Language and Content is one of the first works that offers an effective means of coping with CLIL in practice: the Knowledge Framework. It relies on a functional view of language as a medium of learning, and proposes the analysis of language as discourse but in the context of social practice or activity. In so doing, it follows Dewey’s ideas on education as, for example, the learner’s initiation into the activities of society. Each activity combines theoretical and practical knowledge, and is shaped by a given knowledge structure.
