Trans Fat

OK, health teachers: if you can use them, here is a reading on trans fat and the vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet that accompanies it.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.

Measles

OK, here at the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union we had a snow day. I started the day with best of intentions, but after preparing some correspondence animated by strong coffee first thing in the morning, the day devolved into an exercise in extreme laziness. I guess I needed it.

In any case, I am working this morning to justify my existence. Here is a reading on measles and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet if for some reason you can use them.

Vitamin C and Scurvy

It’s Friday again, thank goodness. The weather looks good here for the weekend, for which I am grateful. How are things your way?

For health teachers (and for social studies teachers who want, improbably, their students to understand what life on the high seas was like for English sailors, and how they came by the epithet “Limeys”), here is a reading on vitamin c and scurvy and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet.

Asthma

Health teachers–as well as my erstwhile colleagues in the South Bronx, the asthma capital of New York City, and maybe the world–might find useful this reading on asthma and the vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet that accompanies it.

Artificial Sweeteners

OK, to wrap up on this cool, autumnal morning in southwestern Vermont, here is a reading on artificial sweeteners and the vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet that accompanies it.

Common Cold

Here is a reading on the common cold and the vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet that accompanies it, if you need them.

Libido

I’m not sure where this reading on the Freudian concept of libido and its attendant vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet fit into the curriculum. Health education seems the logical choice, but if you’re an English teacher trying to teach students to speak in a more sophisticated manner of, uh, intimate affairs, this might be the material for that.

Do with it what you will, of course.
