Picture Stories for Adult ESL Health Literacy Created by Kate Singleton Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools The picture stories are: Designed to help ESOL instructors address topics that affect the health and well-being of their students. Useful for beginner and low-literacy students. Newcomers to the United States and adults with lower literacy tend to have the least awareness of and access to health care services, thereby running the risk of more serious and chronic health outcomes. What groups of students are the picture stories suitable for? The stories "Emergency," "A Doctor's Appointment," and "Stressed Out" are suitable for most classes, as the topics are common and uncontroversial. How can the stories be used in class? The Language Experience Approach (LEA) is an effective way to use the picture stories with beginners. Benefits of LEA: Uses the students' own language, experiences and observations to create a product, their own story. Suggested LEA procedure: Are there any other considerations? Picture Story 1: Emergency!

Oppimisaihioita sairaala-alan englannin ja suomen kielen opetukseen Jokainen englannin- ja suomenkielinen aihio muodostaa oman oppimispolkunsa, jossa ideana on, että aihepiiriä lähestytään askel askeleelta. Ensin kielen oppija tutustuu sanoihin kuvien kautta, sukeltaa sitten rikkaaseen puhuttuun kieleen ja tekee erilaisia asioita syntyperäisen puhujan opastamana. Tämän jälkeen samaa kieliainesta (sanastoa ja rakenteita) harjoitetaan monipuolisesti erilaisten tehtävätyyppien avulla. Interaktiivisessa tilassa (Vaihe / Step 2) oppija joutuu suodattamaan äidinkielisen puhujan runsaasta kielellisestä aineksesta hänelle tärkeät sanastolliset ja rakenteelliset vihjeet. Mikäli opastajan puhe ei aukea heti ensimmäisellä kuuntelukerralla, kohtaa voi kuunnella niin monta kertaa kuin tarpeelliseksi katsoo. Aihiopolkujen ydin on, että oppija joutuu jatkuvasti reagoimaan opastajan kehotuksiin ja pyyntöihin (toiminnallisuus). Potilashuone Hospital Room
