Abstract [en]

How common, and how subject-specific, are metaphors in biology and history teachers' narratives about CLIL teaching? The present study investigates CLIL teachers’ use of metaphorical language – verbal metaphor and grammatical metaphor – as part of their CLIL teaching narratives. Swedish CLIL teachers from two subject disciplines – biology and history – were interviewed about their perceptions, values and practices regarding the teaching of their subject through the medium of English.In quantitative and qualitative analyses, frequency and types of metaphors were estimated and identified. Results indicate that verbal metaphors are subject to individual variation whereas grammatical metaphor is shared within the community of practice, independent of school and geographical affiliation. Examples will be presented and discussed in light of teacher epistemology and curriculum documents.
