Free Webinar: Staying Healthy for Beginners: A New ESOL Curriculum
December 4, 2014; 2-3:30 pm EST
Please join us in this webinar about a new ESOL health literacy curriculum created by the Florida Literacy Coalition, Staying Healthy forBeginners: An English Language Learner’s Guide to Health Care and HealthyLiving. Aimed at a high beginning ESL level, this consists of a colorful student guide and accompanying teacher’s guide, which allow you to teach literacy and language acquisition skills in the context of health. This was created as a beginner level version of the 2008 Staying Healthy guide, which has been used all over the country with great success.
The webinar will be facilitated by Julie McKinney, Subject Matter Expert (SME) of the Health Literacy Community of Practice and Greg Smith, Executive Director of the Florida Literacy Coalition. We will learn how this resource was created and pilot tested, and discuss with teachers who use it how it can be used in classrooms. Hear directly from teachers in a short YouTube video.
Presenters: Julie McKinney from LINCS and Greg Smith from the Florida Literacy Coalition
