COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Health Education SDAIE/PLS is a 7th grade course designed specifically for the needs of English

Language Learners who are at the Beginning, Early Intermediate, and Intermediate levels of listening, speaking, reading and writing in English. Students in this SDAIE/PLS course cover the same essential content and utilize the same basic textbook as their Fluent English Speaker counterparts, supplemented with content parallel materials at a simplified reading level. In addition, primary language materials will be provided, when available, to facilitate the preview and review of essential content. The course varies in the pacing, instructional methodology, and supplemental materials. These are designed to provide depth vs. breadth of the content standards, more comprehensible input, primary language support, and literacy development through the content area.

ACADEMIC LITERACY IN SDAIE CONTENT-AREA CLASSES FOR ELLS AT LEVELS 0, 1, 2

The ELD Standards of reading, writing, listening and speaking describe the linguistic pathway that ELLs take to achieve academic literacy in English. SDAIE content area classes play an important role in developing and strengthening students’ progress towards this goal. Students should be encouraged to expand their English skills, even though grammatical and vocabulary approximations will occur during this process.

When content-area information and materials have been made comprehensible through instruction in the

SDAIE class, ELLs at each level will progress through the following phases of developing academic literacy in English. The students’ degrees of literacy in their primary language will significantly affect the pace that students move through these levels.

ELD Level 0

Upon entering ELD Level 0, students have little or no academic English proficiency and have little or no

literacy skills in their first language. ELLs progressing through this level will:

• participate in modified group/class projects, discussions and oral presentations with non-verbal responses (e.g., gestures, drawings, graphic organizers) and/or single words or phrases with assistance (e.g., word walls, language structure walls).

• begin to participate orally in some content area reading strategies (especially pre-reading, KWL, and anticipation guides presented orally), with single words or phrases to analyze concepts from explicitly taught texts and other course reading materials.

• respond to Curriculum Embedded Assessment prompts (read to them and clarified for them) nonverbally (e.g., graphic organizers with drawings) and/or orally with single words or phrases.

• begin to use the English alphabet to write in teacher-guided learning logs, selected homework and interactive notebooks, and to organize and record expository information on pictures, lists, charts and tables using single words or phrases.

• understand the need for using modified test-taking strategies (using taught vocabulary) on the required district/state assessments, such as, End of Course Exams (with alternate presentation and response), and STAR.

ELD Level 1

Upon entering ELD Level 1, students have little or no academic English proficiency and varying levels of academic literacy skills and concepts in their first language. ELLs progressing through this level will:

• participate in group/class projects, discussions and presentations with non-verbal responses (e.g., gestures, drawings, graphic organizers, role-playing) and/or single words, phrases and simple sentences with assistance (e.g., using the academic participation cards).

• participate orally in some content area reading strategies (especially pre-reading, KWL, academic participation cards, anticipation guides) with single words, phrases and/or simple sentences to analyze concepts from taught texts and other course reading materials.

• respond to Curriculum Embedded Assessment prompts (read to them and clarified for them) nonverbally (e.g., graphic organizers with drawings) and/or orally with single words, phrases and simple sentences in an outline format.

• use writing in a variety of ways such as, but not limited to, guided class note-taking, learning logs, interactive notebooks, representing information on pictures, lists, charts and tables using single words, phrases or simple sentences, and completing student handouts, selected homework, and modified class projects.

Health Education 7 SDAIE/PLS

Page 3

• understand the need for using test-taking strategies (using taught vocabulary) on the required district/state assessments, such as, End of Course Exams (with alternate presentation and response),

CST, and CAT-6.

ELD Level 2

Upon entering ELD Level 2, students have some academic English proficiency about topics that have been explicitly taught to them. ELLs progressing through this level will:

• participate in group/class projects, discussions and presentations with simple sentences and many attempts at more complex sentences.

• use content area reading strategies (especially pre-reading, KWL, academic participation cards, anticipation guides, Reciprocal Teaching and Question/Answer Relationships) to analyze concepts from taught texts and other course reading materials.

• respond to Curriculum Embedded Assessment prompts (read to them and clarified for them) orally and with simple and some complex sentence structures in at least three paragraphs.

• use writing in a variety of ways such as, but not limited to, class note-taking, learning logs, interactive notebooks, response logs, and completing student handouts, homework, and class projects.

ƒ understand the need for using test-taking strategies (using taught vocabulary) on the required district/state assessments, such as, End of Course Exams (with alternate presentation and response),

CST and CAT-6.

OUTLINE OF CONTENT AND TIME ALLOTMENT

The Health Education units of study are based on the Health Education Content Standards for

California Public Schools (2008). Effective health education emphasizes the connections between the content areas of health so that students can explore the inter-relationships in health.

The time allotment reflects 18 weeks of instruction. The time allotment identified is to serve as a guide, not a mandate, for instructional time. To provide more time for literacy development and comprehensible input,

English Language Learners in this course should receive instruction only on the essential curriculum objectives which are reflected in bold print.

The essential Performance Indicators are reflected in bold print in each outlined unit of study.

Service Learning:

Service learning is an instructional strategy that connects meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, personal growth, and civic responsibility. Service learning enhances what is taught in the

Health Education 7 SDAIE/PLS

Page 21 course by extending learning beyond the classroom and providing opportunities for students to use newly acquired skills and knowledge in real-life situations in their own communities. Service learning makes coursework relevant.

There are many opportunities, on campus and in the community, to participate in service learning activities related to Health Education. Students are expected to complete a service learning activity prior to the completion of the course. Any preparation, action, products developed for the project, and reflection on the service activity, not the service itself, will be graded by the instructor as one of the performance based assessments.

METHODS: A variety of instructional strategies will be utilized to accommodate all learning styles and to reinforce reading, writing and health skills while learning health content.

Lesson Design & Delivery: Teachers will incorporate these components of lesson design during direct

instruction and inquiry activities. The order of components is flexible, depending on the teacher’s vision for the individual lesson. For instance, the objective and purpose, while present in the teacher’s lesson plan, are not made known to the students at the beginning of an inquiry lesson.

Some components may occur once in a lesson, but others will recur many times. Checking for understanding occurs continually; input, modeling, guided practice and closure may occur several times.

There may even be more than one anticipatory set when more than one content piece is introduced.

Active Participation: Teachers will incorporate the principles of active participation and specific

strategies to ensure consistent, simultaneous involvement of the minds of all learners in the classroom.

Teachers should include both covert and overt active participation strategies, incorporating cooperative learning structures and brain research. Some of the possible active participation strategies include:

EVALUATION: Student achievement in this course will be measured using multiple assessment tools including but not limited to:

Required Assessments:

Exam

Additional Assessments

Teacher-Based evaluation will include

• Lesson quizzes and chapter tests to determine acquisition of health content

Health Education 7 SDAIE/PLS

Page 24

• Performance-based assessment events and tasks (written and or oral reports, posters, cartoons, skits, songs, charts, displays, etc.) to allow students to demonstrate getting the information (define, describe, identify, etc.), processing it (compare, contrast, analyze, etc.), and using it (inform, persuade, motivate)

• Performance-based assessments assess health concepts and skills in the context of scenarios that can closely approximate real world situations (these assessments can only infer whether students "know how to" engage in healthy behaviors and "know why" they are healthy; they will not be able to tell whether they are actually using their knowledge to engage in health-enhancing behaviors outside the classroom)

Student-Based evaluation will include:

• Personal health inventories and plans

• Assessment of performance events and tasks

• Selection of work samples for health portfolios
