"Welcome to the next step in your future!" Presenting Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) to Swedish Stakeholders The working title of my PhD project is “Welcome to the next step in your future! Defining English-medium Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) in the Swedish Upper Secondary School.” The focus is on the extent and scope of CLIL in Sweden. The aim is to investigate how the four stakeholders (pupils, parents, teachers, and school administrators) in the schools offering CLIL define their educational goals as well as how these goals are assessed, what methods are identified as tools to reach the goals, and how achievement of the goals is measured. Part of the investigation into how the schools define their goals is how the educational option is presented by and to the stakeholders. Schools use websites, brochures, and advertising in the local media to attract pupils. In an open market for upper secondary education, the schools by necessity need to “sell” their education in a persuasive manner. Thus, they may use the websites to create a certain identity of a CLIL pupil as well as establish a position as a stakeholder in a certain community. Both the reasons why English is being offered as the medium of instruction and how the option is being presented are of interest. This spring, six websites presenting Swedish schools offering CLIL will be analysed to explore what is being offered and to whom as well as how written text is used together with images. While consideration of the interpersonal metafunction in particular is useful in exploring how meaning in the web texts is construed, I am especially interested in how Appraisal Analysis can be applied to explore how evaluative language is used in the texts presented online to potential and intended stakeholders. How the three systems of attitude, engagement and graduation express meaning will be analysed, with a focus on attitude. While this analysis has only recently commenced, preliminary results are expected by June for the workshop in Uppsala. I plan to present this part of my research and hope to receive feedback on my analysis, especially on coding issues. As I plan to use the Appraisal Analysis model for my continued research in my investigation of classroom discourse in CLIL lessons (school year 2011-2012), I also hope the workshop will offer an opportunity to engage in a discussion about using the framework for verbal exchanges as well as the challenges of applying the model to large amounts of text.
