ESL Lesson Plan Sitting DiseaseHow long do you sit on an average day? Are your students glued to their chairs, too? Today’s podcast features a reading from our Health Matters lesson plan on Sitting Disease. In the related lesson plan, English learners read 6 Tips To Prevent Sitting Disease. They discuss how prolonged sitting is more of a problem in recent generations than it was in the past, and research ways to improve their own posture. This lesson also includes a role-play activity that gives students an opportunity to practice using new vocabulary from the reading.
