Cross-language collaboration at different levels of education in a bilingual setting

We present a three-year action research -oriented project where researchers together with teachers in ECEC and basic education in a bilingual city in Finland collaborate to develop, document and disseminate innovative pedagogical methods in cross-language practices and language-aware teaching. The umbrella project entails four different levels of education, ranging from early childhood education to upper secondary school, and brings together teacher teams from Finnish- and Swedish-medium educational settings to cooperate and teach across languages and curriculum. Although the development project focuses on language-aware teaching, the teachers involved in the project are not language teachers.
The data presented in this study predominantly consists of audio- and video recordings of individual teacher teams’ and teacher-researchers’ collegial planning and preparation of cross-language and cross-curricular activities, the execution of planned activities, and reflective and evaluative post discussions. Across the four levels of education, the researchers have, in their data-driven analyses inductively identified three activity-related issues that (re)occur in the collected data, i.e. security, content, and language. In this presentation, we aim to illustrate how the three different aspects interplay in the mind-sets of the teachers. We showcase how the teachers orient towards their students’ communicative needs and willingness to communicate in activities involving both new peers and new languages.
