Language Skills for Job Entry.
Dille, Ralph G.
The most important factor in the teaching of English is the establishment of a philosophy which serves as a guide for determining course content. At the two-year college level, there is a need to develop English programs and courses which are essential not only to the students but also to the business community in which a majority of the students--graduates and nongraduates--will enter. Modeling communication and language instruction after the needs of business is an obligation of education, especially two-year college education where the primary objective is to equip students with the skills necessary to enter the job market. Developing a curriculum modeled after the needs of employers would result in instruction that is consistent with current needs, increased economy for both education and business, and decreased duplication of courses that are taught by both colleges and business.
