Secondary student well-being
This lesson has been developed for use in face-to-face classrooms where physical distancing rules are in place, but can be used in any face-to-face teaching context. There is also a version of the lesson plan for use in remote teaching contexts.
Well-being refers to eating and sleeping well, exercise, giving time to things/people that make you feel happy and healthy. But when there’s a lot of time on our hands, like during a lockdown, it’s easy to abandon these important daily routines. In this lesson, students read advice about planning their days more effectively and ensuring they maintain their well-being. They follow up with an interview in pairs to discover what they can improve and discuss which tips would serve them best.
- increase awareness of ‘well-being’ and learn associated vocabulary
- develop reading skills (reading for main ideas and for detail)
- improve intonation in questions and practise them with a partner.
