{July 6, 2009}   Social Issues at School

How do you deal with social aspects of life with your kids? I started thinking of working with something about “Swine Flu” with my teen students.

We had worked with illnesses in general some weeks ago, and they were pretty anxious when I presented the topic of our last class (classes have been suspended here due to Swine Flu)

I’ve provided transcripts of  a podcast on Swine Flu and students scanned the text for familiar words related to health and medicine. Then, we brainstormed words on the topic, and I taught some new vocabulary items.

Students then created a big poster to share their knowledge on the topic with the rest of the school.

Where I got material on the topic:

Challenges 3 – Module 3: Health. Longman

Lesson Planet

ESLThemes

CDC

Swine Flu
