Health Literacy discussion group for ESOL instructors to begin Feb. 16

Here is an invitation to join a LINCS discussion for ESOL instructors.

Please join us for a discussion in the Health Literacy group on the ESOL health literacy curriculum: Staying Healthy for Beginners: An English Learner’s Guide to Health Care and Healthy Living.

The curriculum includes a colorful, picture-filled student guide written for a high beginning ESL level, and an accompanying teacher’s guide. Together they allow you to teach literacy and language acquisition skills in the context of health topics like talking with doctors, taking medicine and eating healthy food.

From February 16-20, 2015, we will talk with Greg Smith and Jennifer Young, from the  Florida Literacy Coalition , who created the student and teacher’s guides. They will discuss how the guides were developed, how they work, and how they can be used in ESOL programs.

We hope to have a chance to hear more from teachers who have used this curriculum, and to talk with teachers who may want to use it in the future.

Best Regards,

The LINCS Community Team
