Collection of Lesson Plan

Proteins- compounds in food: Do proteins provide essential function for the body?

Subject taught
- Biology

Language Skills Developed
- Interaction
- Listening
- Reading
- Speaking

Transferable/Scientific Skills Developed
Increasing memory performance
- Collaborative learning
- Stateing your own opinion
- Dual coding
- The ability to take initiative
- The ability to write, talk and think

There are some examples of teaching resources

1. In this video we look at the basic structure of proteins and their importance as macronutrients in the diet. We look at some of the functions of proteins in the human body, and consider different dietary sources
2. The activity is aimed at planning a webquest on proteins, providing the students with some web-references and guiding questions which will help understand better the topic investigated.
3. The activity is a multiple choice questionnaire on proteins, aimed at assessing some key concepts related to this topic.
4. The wordwall web resource features an interactive game of ‘hangman’ testing knowledge of terms associated with the topic ‘Proteins’.
5. This e-book can be used by anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge of proteins, meat and food industry. Also, the resource is recommended to teachers who want to teach probability using English.
6. The game should be used at the end of the whole unit of proteins. It might be an excellent way to revise the material. Student will develop key competences, such as problem-solving, data analysis and verbal communication. They will also be able to develop team work skills if they work in groups.
7. This video can be used as a way to present the topic: Proteins – chemical compounds in food, then when it is necessary teacher can explain new words, or prepare a list of new words before watching.

• General aims
What do we know about proteins – chemical compounds in food?
Show how the proteins are important for human’s body in every age, and in every kind of diet
To familiarise students with the information on proteins
To learn about various ways of producing meat as a source of protein
To revise the knowledge of chemical compounds in food
• Linguistic aims
-use proper grammar structures
-learn and use a specific vocabulary
- correct pronunciation
- to read English with ease
- to understanding content
- to learn from written texts
- to master tools for gathering information
- to express opinion
- to enable students to understand topic correctly
- to develop academic language
- to translate words connected with probability in English into the mother tongue using their own words.
• Subject specific aims
Learn about protein as a component of food. Discover the structure, functions and sources of proteins. Presenting sources of proteins
- Explain what the proteins are
- Present information of meat production
- Point healthy diet for everyone
-Presenting groups of proteins
- Explain what the proteins are
- Revise the structures of proteins
Students should learn:
- some detail about the composition of proteins
- basic information about amino acids
- some important functions of proteins
- dietary sources of protein
- the difference between animal and plant protein
- the importance of a balanced diet
• Target group age
12-16
• Level of competence in English (CEFR)
B1
• Different phases to complete the lesson plan
Practice using present tenses
• Possible difficulties for the students
- lack of vocabulary,
-a lot of new names
- the pronunciation of new words
The e-book is written using simple and clear sentences so it won’t be difficult to understand.
Students whose level of English is poor might have problems with understanding the content. Students who have not studied proteins can face difficulties in completing the quiz.

• Difficulties related to the interdisciplinarity of the lesson plan (if this is the case)
Students may have difficulties linking the descriptive biological information to the more abstract biochemistry.
