Blackwell, Margaret; Smith, Sondra Marshall
This guide develops aspects of the worker role and focuses on the situations that arise and language skills that are needed when a person is seeking a job and functioning on a job. The guide is modular in form and provides sample lesson materials and procedures for three levels of language proficiency. The introductory material gives the philosophy and goals of the course, some notes on general competence in English, definitions of proficiency levels, notes on features of the guide and its use, and a list of resources. There are 15 modules which are not intended to be followed sequentially, but selectively. Each module contains an overview of the lesson, language components of the situation, lessons for the three levels, references and notes for the teacher, and evaluation and testing suggestions. (AMH)
