Module 2: Symptoms and Injuries (2010)

This document is one of nine modules that make up “Health Talk: A Health Literacy Curriculum for English Language Learners,” developed by the Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association (CIWA).

In this module, the authors discuss the need to recognize symptoms and get treatment promptly at the appropriate facility. They have also included activity sheets and a glossary to help the facilitator explain new vocabulary.

Sample lesson plans include the targeted Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level of the learners, as well as an estimate of the time required for each lesson. This module includes lesson plans ranging from pre-benchmark to CLB 2.

Because the curriculum is aimed at learners with low literacy skills, the authors have included a discussion of a preferred method for teaching this material to those learners.
