Abstract [en]

In this study we investigate how four didactic models can be used by chemistry teachers to improve teaching to support students with a second language to “talk chemistry”. The study contributes to show how these models can be used by chemistry teachers to organise, perform and evaluate chemistry lessons in a way that better support second language students to become more active in talking and so learn chemistry. The material consists of video and audio recordings from chemistry lessons in an introductory class in upper secondary school in Sweden. The study was carried out in two cycles of planning, teaching and reflection in two successive classes. The first cycle was to analyse how a “normal” chemistry lesson gave students opportunities to talk and learn chemistry. In cycle two changes were made by using four models for the purpose of increasing the students opportunities to “talk chemistry”. Our findings show how teachers can also support students with a second language to learn to “talk chemistry” by using the didactic models developed in mono-lingual classrooms when planning and performing chemistry lessons.
