Lord Fairfax Community Coll., Middletown, VA.
This curriculum includes outlines for a series of professional readiness courses designed to improve the various basic skills required of hospital personnel. The first eight sections consist of course outlines/materials on the following topics: user-friendly arithmetic, user-friendly fractions, user-friendly algebra, problem solving through self-awareness, career development, developing positive work interaction, solving medical terminology, and English as a Second Language. Sections 9 and 10 both cover reading and reasoning: Section 9 is a learner's performing-work taskbook, and section 10 is a learner's resource manual. A learner's activity book dealing with workplace writing skills constitutes section 11. Each of these sections includes some or all of the following: course outline, learner objectives, problems, learning activities, class outlines, instructional text, student handouts, and duplication masters. Many of the problems and learning activities presented are specifically related to hospital settings. Section 12 contains a series of program/course evaluation forms. Reference lists (some of them are substantial) are included in several sections. (MN)
