Competency-Based Adult Education/English as a Second Language Modules: Health.
Marinelli, Diane, Ed.
This packet contains four Competency-Based Adult Education/English as a Second Language (ESL) lessons in the health content area designed for beginning level students. Each lesson revolves around one central character who, in the course of the four lessons, successfully performs four life-coping skills: (1) calling for a doctor's appointment, (2) visiting the doctor, (3) filling a prescription, and (4) going to the Emergency Room. Contents of each lesson include statement of purpose, list of outcomes, pre-post test with means of evaluation, and suggested instructional resources and activities. Within the instructional activities is a section titled "Required Level of English" specifying what language content the student should be familiar with in terms of reception and production, prior to using the lesson. The lessons are keyed to two major ESL basic texts--New Horizons and ESL--A New Approach for the 21st Century. Each lesson contains some or all of the following skill areas: listening/speaking, reading, writing, computation, problem-solving, and cultural information. Parts of the lesson available in the native language are indicated. (Address is cited.) Translations are available in the four most common languages in Illinois: Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean, and French. (YLB)
