Le politiche linguistiche europee e l’educazione plurilingue
Un caso nella realtà scolastica
The language policies of the Council of Europe and the European Union have increasingly focused on the promotion of plurilingualism, driven by socio-political and educational needs in a changing linguistic space. Since different teaching and learning models are used in the application of the CEFR, in particular where plurilingualism is concerned, this paper focuses on one specific document issued by the Council of Europe, namely the Guide for the Development and Implementation of Curricula for Plurilingual and Intercultural Education (2016). This guide is analysed on the basis of the results of an interview carried out with teachers in an Italian school with a significant presence of foreign students. The aim of the paper is to investigate whether principles of plurilingual education are present in their didactic practice.
