Description

The resource consists of a slideshow video which presents on slides the most important vocabulary items, content and ideas related to a healthy diet and the hazards of eating junk food and of obesity. The pace is adequate for the target level and the content is interesting. It is associated with a colourful worksheet introducing new vocabulary and phrases through a matching exercise, extra reading with a fill-in exercise and a set of questions associated with the audio material. The technical solutions are simple, yet efficient and easily adaptable. A speaking follow-up activity is suggested.

Case study

The resource is complex, well balanced and provides opportunities for the development of vocabulary, reading, listening, and conversation. The same structure can be adapted for other topics using existing podcasts and/or other audio materials. The variety in tone and approach can contribute to increasing student interest and motivation.

Guidelines

Please produce a check list / guidelines on how to use the resource
Duration - 4 min 20 s
1. Warm-up activity: elicit students` knowledge and attitude towards a healthy life-style and a healthy diet, and factors that can affect health;
2. Use the activities in the order in which they are presented in the work-file, also using the associated audio material;
3. Possible follow-up activity : using the lexical material students can be asked to write a short (2 paragraphs) popularization article for a magazine presenting the hazards of fast food.
The audio is based on an article from a Romanian TV channel, so the audio can be used along with/instead of the written text.
