The bibliography is designed for learning center instructors at the Los Angeles Community College District who are involved in vocational education for limited-English-proficient (LEP) adults. The bibliography emphasizes vocational English-as-a-Second-Language (VESL) materials that develop occupation-related language skills. In addition to VESL materials, the bibliography includes specially designed texts and other materials prepared to help LEP students understand vocational content. All items are designed for classroom use. The first section contains annotated citations of general VESL textbooks. Five subsequent sections contain simple bibliographic citations of selections in basic skills (mathematics and reading and writing), computer literacy, general technology, general VESL, and technical writing. The final and largest section contains citations relating to specific occupations: agriculture/horticulture, automotive services, building maintenance, business professions (accounting, business management, office and clerical, and word and data processing), construction/carpentry, cosmetology, drafting, electrical trades, electronics, food service, graphic arts, health science, machine and tool shop, plastics, refrigeration/air conditioning/heating, textiles, and welding. Three appendixes include sources for items cited in the bibliography, sources for computer-assisted instruction, and an index to the specific language groups addressed in the items cited.
