8. Language awareness and subject-specific language use

In this task you will reflect on the languages used in the instruction of different subjects.

  1. Consider the language of two different subjects that are not languages (including subjects such as P.E., music, and visual arts). In what ways is language different in the instruction of the subjects you chose? Differences can arise, for example, as economic use of language (typical of mathematics), or as the creative expression of body language.
  2. How do the skills you mentioned relate to the language you learn in language classes?

This task can also be completed in pairs or in groups.
