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 explain basic health care services available in Alberta and provide activity sheets to help reinforce key concepts. Topics covered include applying for an Alberta health card; what services are covered; finding a family doctor, dentist or optometrist; and what to do in an emergency.
Each sample lesson plan includes an estimate of the time required for the lesson as well as the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level of the material. Lesson plans in this module range from pre-benchmark to CLB 2.
The authors have included tips for teaching ESL learners who have low literacy skills.
