CLIJA

IMG_8254clijaECG20181017_1.jpg

Since the beginning of the school year 2008/2009, the ECG receives newly-arrived pupils between the ages of 16 and 18 years. Those pupils attend a ‘classe d’insertion pour jeunes adultes’ (CLIJA). The curriculum consists mainly of an intensive French course at beginner level. The ultimate aim is to integrate those pupils into a regular secondary level class or provide access to an apprenticeship so that the young adults attending the classes become financially and socially independent.

The group of pupils is very heterogenous which requires an approach to teaching favoring differentiation in each subject part of the curriculum.

In French, the aim is for the pupils to achieve a B1 level of proficiency, which some pupils manage to attain while others remain on a lower level. The humanities and natural sciences are integrated in the French curriculum in order to enhance the linguistic skills of the pupils in these domains.

Luxembourgish, a language of integration, is taught as a foreign language. Emphasis is put on developing speaking and listening skills. With the help of speaking activities focusing on easily comprehensible and slow-paced interactions the pupils will be able to acquire familiar language and common expressions to talk about themselves, their families, and topics that are pertinent in everyday life. The pupil will have acquired a basic set of vocabulary to deal with situations likely to arise regularly and to talk about routine tasks.

In English, emphasis is put on speaking and writing skills. The curriculum is adapted to the requirements and skills of each student. Lessons focus on the development of communication, grammar, and language skills.

As the pupils’ skills in mathematics are likely to be very heterogenous, the teacher will have to differentiate to a great extent in order to cater to the pupils’ needs. The lessons are based on the curriculum of 7e, 6e, and 5e of the secondary general stream.

Arts education can be considered as an introduction to art and is deemed an important means of expression for the pupils.

Physical education is geared to the enhancement of the pupils’ general well-being, their physical and motor skills as well as their social skills. Furthermore, games and competition help foster their ability to function as a member of a team.

In computer science the main focus lies on word processing and spreadsheets.

In general, the curriculum of the CLIJA classes is designed in a way to promote integration and help the pupils to adjust to a new environment by offering them the necessary tools and skills to pursue a successful academic career.

NB: Before entering a CLIJA, the pupil has to apply through SECAM (Service de la scolarisation des élèves étrangers). They will provide the necessary information regarding the Luxembourgish school system in general, and the offer available for pupils speaking a foreign language more specifically. In a next step, the pupils’ competencies and skills are assessed in order to identify the most suitable solution. For more ample information on school offers and how to apply, please consult the website of the Ministère de l'Éducation nationale, de l'Enfance et de la Jeunesse http://www.men.public.lu/fr/themes-transversaux/scolarisation-eleves-etrangers/index.html.

CLIJA 1: Projet Stop&Go (Partie 1)

20.01.2020

Wat ass de Projet Stop&Go? Et ass e Projet vun der CLIJA (Classe d’Insertion de jeunes adultes), also Jonker vu 16-18 Joer déi eréischt zënter kuerzem zu Lëtzebuerg sinn, déi aus ganz verschiddene Länner kommen, an wärend engem Schouljoer haaptsächlech Franséisch (15 Stonnen d’Woch), awer och Englesch, Lëtzebuergesch, Mathe, Info, Konscht an Turnen am ECG hunn. De Projet ass an zwou Partien (9. bis 13. Dezember) an (13. bis 17. Januar) opgedeelt, bei deem et haaptsächlech drëm geet fir ausserhalb vum Klassesall nei Kompetenzen ze entwéckelen. Thematesch geet et drëm fir eng emotional Analys an e Point ze maachen iwwert d’Vergaangenheet, dat heescht den eegene Liewenswee (Stop) an dann no vir ze goen, op déi aner Mënschen zouzegoen an eppes aktiv ze bewierken (Go). Déi zwee Deeler ginn all Kéiers duerch en Evenement clôturéiert.

Wat war den éischten Deel? An der éischter Presentatioun, déi den 13. Dezember stattfonnt huet, hunn d’15 Schüler vun der CLIJA 1, an enger Kombinatioun vu Choreographie an enger kuerzer audiovisueller Produktioun mat vereenzelte fiktiven Elementer, eng autobiographesch Duerstellung gemaach. Well dat awer oft ganz perséinlech an ergräifend Elementer sinn, déi d’Schüler do mam Publikum deelen, huet sech déi Virféierung un d’Enseignanten an d’Personal vum SSE geriicht.
