The Best Resources For Helping Beginner ELLs Learn About Health

 

As I shared last month (see Beginning A New “Best” Series Of Interest To ELL Teachers), I’m beginning to create an updated series of “Best” lists for Beginning English Language Learners. They will ultimately replace the resources I have on my outdated website.

I began with:

The Best Resources For Helping Beginner ELLs Learn About Jobs

The Best Resources For Helping ELLs Learn About Sports & Other Fun Activities

The Best Resources For Helping ELLs Learn About U.S. Money

The Best Resources For Helping Beginner ELLs Learn About Space & Planets

The Best Resources For Helping Beginner ELLs Learn About “Feelings”

I also have The Best health sites for English language learners, as well as many other health-related “Best” lists,  but many of those resources are not accessible to ELL Beginners.

Please let me know if you have additional suggestions of sites to add:

Language Guide: MedicineThe Body, The Body 2

Match The Word

Health Vocabulary Game

English For Health

ESOL Courses Health

Web ESL Health

Health Problems

Agenda Web Health

LaRue Medical Literacy Exercises 2

Visit the Dentist with Marty

Here’s The Video TED-Ed SHOULD HAVE MADE About Henrietta Lacks

As regular readers know, I love TED-Ed.

However, earlier this year they blew it big time with a very bad video and lesson on Henrietta Lacks (see Disappointing New TED-Ed Video & Lesson On Henrietta Lacks).

Today, through the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans , I learned about this video created by students at a KIPP school in Oakland.

It includes all the information that TED-Ed left out of theirs:

Another Study On Teens & Hearing Loss

At the risk of sounding like an “old fogey,” I’m regularly astounded by the high volumes many young people set the music they are listening to on their phones, and I’ve previously shared related info at The Best Resources On Teens & Hearing Loss.

I use some of those resources to do “mini-lessons” throughout the year on the issue.

A new study on the problem just came out, and you can read about it at Eureka Alert at Today’s teenagers could become prematurely hearing-impaired, study warns.

Here’s an excerpt:
