Hello colleagues, Teachers who are interested in exploring the topic of health literacy with English learners, will want to check out these curricular resources in the LINCS collection that are housed on the Florida Literacy Coalition's website. The downloadable materials include beautifully illustrated student books and teachers' guides.
One set of materials targets beginners and features the following topics: healthcare, doctors, medicine, healthy food, and staying healthy. There is also a student book at the intermediate/advanced level. In addition, there are four videos on the site that can be used to expand learners' understanding of health topics and, at the same time, enhance their listening skills.
Additional curricular materials are available that deal specifically with stress and women's health.
It would be great to hear from teachers who are addressing the vital topic of health literacy in their ESL classrooms.
Cheers, Susan FInn Miller
