Career English is a course planned to teach the fundamental communicative skills to students in a meaningful, motivational, practical way through the medium of career choice. The handbook is meant to be a supplementary tool for high school teachers. Phase 1 focuses on the fundamentals of basic grammar and basic writing; it is divided into seven lessons: nouns and pronouns, subjects and verbs, complete and incomplete sentences, the paragraph, punctuation and capitalization, usage, and suggestions for review. Each of the lessons contains definitions, classifications, examples, spelling, vocabulary, and tests. Every effort must be made to correlate Phase 1 with Phase 2, where the student is asked to research and complete a written project on his future career. The project has 14 main sections: title page, introduction, application section, resume, written correspondence section, student cumulative record sheet, job description sheet, career English questionnaire, statement of final decision, student evaluation of the project, related newspaper and magazine articles, correction sheets, list of resource materials, and oral talk. Instructions to the student are included for each section. (Questionnaires and pre- and posttests are included.) (AG)
