Project EXCEL is a federally-funded workplace literacy program involving hotel enterprises in the San Francisco (California) Bay area. Its focus is on identification and instruction of literacy skills essential to job success for limited-English-proficient (LEP) workers. Training is intended to enable employees to understand written work orders, enhance communication with supervisors and co-workers, and encourage greater involvement through team building and critical thinking. This training module is designed for hotel stewarding staff in one participating hotel. An introductory section gives an overview of the curriculum and offers suggestions for classroom presentation. The curriculum consists of six instructional units on these topics: alphabets and numbers; simple social dialogue; discussing location of items; clarifying communications; basic safety precautions; and use of safety measures for chemicals. The listening script and answers keys are appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
