Teaching Manual for Enhancing Students’ English Writing Skills through Promoting Language across the Curriculum in Life and Society (Secondary 1-3)

 

Hong Kong secondary school students studying subject contents in English typically find it challenging to express what they want to say in writing. This is especially the case for subjects where language competences are an integral part of learning, such as Life and Society (Secondary 1-3) in the PSHE KLA.


The “Teaching Manual for Enhancing Students’ English Writing Skills through Language across the Curriculum in Life and Society (Secondary 1-3)” (the Manual) aims to demonstrate how the learning of subject contents and development of academic writing skills can be interweaved in carefully designed scaffolding activities and tasks. The Manual contains 10 sample units. Educationally sound practices such as “Catering for Learner Diversity”, ”Peer Evaluation” and “Assessment as Learning” are incorporated in these sample units to facilitate learning and teaching.


Upon completion, students are expected to develop an enhanced understanding of the topics taught, sharper writing skills for answering questions and better knowledge of the language functions covered.


For Life and Society teachers, we hope that the Manual will provide them with useful teaching resources for direct, selective or adaptive use. For other PSHE subject teachers, we hope that the Manual will demonstrate one possible way of how Language across the Curriculum practices can bring greater benefits to learning and teaching.
