Because CBI utilizes authentic materials that are produced for native speakers of Japanese, they pose a great challenge for learners to understand their content due to learners' limited language proficiency. Some teaching strategies have been proposed and elaborated to assist learners in successful learning of content and language, especially in the fields of immersion education and teaching English as a second language. One of those instructional strategies, known as scaffolding, has been widely utilized in CBI. However, varying definitions and interpretations among educators result in a fragmented application of the concept to instructional practice. Publication Title.

Learning theories in practice/Content-Based Instruction. Introduction[edit] Let’s think about the following conversation.

Learning theories in practice/Content-Based Instruction

The conversation is fictional but plausible. Teacher: Why were you absent yesterday, Jeffery? Jeffery: Cause I had to take my little sister to the hospital, cause she had a fever and was crying. My parents were not at home, so I call my aunt, then I wait for her to come and get my sister. Jeffery’s oral English competence is excellent. When ELLs’ basic conversational English skills are as high as Jeffery’s, what language teachers could do to help learners have an even higher level of English?

What these ELLs need is strong academic English proficiency that helps them perform successfully in content areas because a strong proficiency in oral English does not necessarily translate into ELLs’ academic success (Cummins, 1980). Traditionally, language instruction focuses on language forms; that is, learners know what to say and how to say it in various situations along with basic reading and writing skills. Foundation[edit]
