Teaching English in the Workplace.
Belfiore, Mary Ellen; Burnaby, Barbara
A guide to program planning and administration of instruction in EWP (English as a second language (ESL) in the workplace combined with varying degrees of general ESL/orientation information) is intended for management and union representatives, EWP coordinators, and ESL administrators as well as teachers. Its primary purposes are to bring together issues, ideas, and work of importance in EWP in the form of descriptions of recent Canadian EWP programs and valuable work from other countries, to present specific classroom practice ideas, and to emphasize the importance of coordination and cooperation among the partners in EWP. The first three chapters discuss the participants in the process of developing and implementing EWP programs (learners, company, union, educational institution, and teachers), program negotiation between sponsor and provider, and educational need analysis. The subsequent chapters on curriculum development discuss designing a syllabus, developing materials, classroom sequences, and assessment and evaluation. A concluding chapter outlines questions and issues for further research. Lists of additional resources are appended. (MSE)
