Content and Language Integrated Learning:
Learning English with Big History
Your English is at B1 level and you want to keep it up.
You want to use English to learn something about the world we live in.
You are curious about how things came to be the way they are now.
Then join us in this new English class.
We will read informative texts and translate them into German, so we can learn new words and phrases. We will watch short (5 -15 min) videos with subtitles and transcript in English.
We will discuss the ideas Big History provides.
In short: Big History connects knowledge (from all of the sciences) from the big bang until today. It is a framework for knowledge that can help you connect the pieces of knowledge you have learned in the course of your life so far. You can also discover things you did not know.
Big History helps us understand who and what we are as humans, where we came from and where we might be going. It is our history - a modern scientific origin story. Back to the roots, so to speak.
