La prise en compte de la dimension linguistique dans les disciplines non-linguistiques : du prescrit au réel

Abstract : This article proposes a discussion about the French language appropriation in a school context. More specifically, it examines the linguistic dimension being taken into account in non linguistic disciplines (NLD), in the French overseas school context. It presents a case study led in a public school, in south Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, which aims at verifying if and to what extent, the linguistic dimension, within the written competence, is taken into account and integrated in the teaching of 3 non linguistic disciplines: History, Geography, and Life and Earth Sciences, in Year 7. The methodology used in the analysis proposed is based on the curricular approach. It examines the extent of the linguistic dimension at various curricular levels: prescribed curriculum, planned curriculum and received curriculum, towards the need of the learners, and towards the institutional demand, which is linked to the implementation of the common basis of knowledge and skills. This study is based on the analysis of 3 teachers stated practices. It aims at verifying whether, and in what form, non linguistic disciplines teachers plan and integrate in their teaching the linguistic dimension. The results of this research highlight the difficulties encountered by the teachers to efficiently integrate the linguistic dimension in their own specialities, but also their positions and views on this matter at a pedagogical and didactic level. Furthermore the results propose areas for discussion and prospects deepening the discussion about the NLD teachers training, in order to meet the needs of learners in a case of languages in contact.
