Skill Books Go to Work. The Development of a Workplace Literacy Program.
Cacy, Roselynn; And Others
This guide is designed to help program developers establish a literacy program geared to specific occupations. It uses examples from English second-language literacy education for the hotel housekeeper. The guide consists of seven sections addressing the following aspects of program development: getting started and overall planning; selecting a business partner; developing and modifying curriculum (including a lesson plan worksheet); funding and volunteers; computer based instruction; sites, worker incentives, and participant evaluation; and useful forms and flyers for establishing a new program. Each section contains different kinds of materials for administrator, teacher, and student, including a number of sample curriculum units and lesson plans, worksheets, and handouts. Some materials that apply specifically to working with the Anchorage Literacy Project are provided. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
