2nd Course – Health

There’s not a lot of content about Health in this course so you may want to divert your students to health literacy when an occasion arises. In the Workers and the Workplace story Alejandro lands in the hospital with a broken leg after an accident at work. This would be a good spot to direct your students to some listening and reading that will improve their health literacy awareness and health-related vocabulary.

This link will direct the student to the Emergencies topic. There are lots of good audio slideshows and you could let students choose one that interests them. But they will have to scroll down the list to find the one about the Emergency Room which connects to the fact that Alejandro was taken to the emergency room. Click English to see the audio slideshow and get the handout.

This next link will direct the student to the Injuries and Wounds topic. The third one down is Bone Fractures. Click English to see the audio slideshow and get the handout.

Bone Fractures

In this story Alejandro’s wife announces that she is pregnant. There are also good presentations about pre-natal care for students that might find that useful.  Just scan the list. Lots of great material on this site and the level is good for Second Course students.
