Texts for three units of a workplace English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) literacy program are included. The first unit addresses language skills for social and personal identification, including lessons on introductions, social language, family, filling out forms, schedules and timelines, and expressing feelings. The second unit focuses on aspects of working, including expressing facts and feelings about work, coping with forms and applications, specifying skills, asking for clarification of information, discussing time clocks and paychecks, and explaining problems. These texts consist of vocabulary development activities, drills, and readings about other immigrants, with comprehension exercises. The third unit deals with belonging to a union and individual rights on the job, and includes information and comprehension exercises concerning unions, union administration, contracts, and protection of individual rights. The text is in English, with occasional examples using Spanish. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
