Abstract

Referring to the new policy on National Curriculum of 2013, in which one of its objectives is to empower teachers to develop the potential of the region, and answering the gap between the curriculum demand on the local content development and the lack of local content development on the provided materials being used to teach English in Central Kalimantan, this paper attempts to introduce ecolinguistics as the local content development in EFL classrooms of Junior High School level. The ecolinguistics inserted in the lesson plan is a narrative text of a local story, and a procedure text of how to make traditional soup from young rattan. The teaching model was executed in SMPN 1 and SMPN 3, Kuala Kapuas. The teaching English using ecolinguistics was completed with exercises for students to comprehend meanings of a lexicon list of environmental expressions taken from the texts and use them in their writing. Understanding ecolinguistics – the use of environmental linguistic expressions will lead to a meaningful teaching and learning process. Therefore, as the follow-up it is necessary to develop instructional material consisting of environmental linguistic expressions.
