Teaching material is one of the important components in the process of teaching and learning. Its
appropriateness is an absolute demand to achieve the success in obtaining the maximum input of
The instructional design models used in the designing of teaching material are adopted from those
of Dick and Carey (2005) as well as Borg and Gall, (1983). The result of English Oral
Communication Material for midwifery students has specifically set as follows: Snapshot,
Conversation in Context, Grammar Focus, Word Power and Video Viewing. The topic in every unit
is set in chronological order based on the procedures of midwife work and the activity in every sub -unit is oriented for speaking which is preceded by various activities which apply CLIL approach and
are supported by some learning theory such as behaviorism, constructivism, modeling, questioni ng
and exercising. Hence, the final teaching material is regarded to be good enough, for this teaching
material has filled the existing gap of English speaking learning needs which later on it can assist
the midwifery students who are projected to work at international maternity clinics and hospitals in
local or foreign countries.
