This document reports on the partnership between Prince George's County (Maryland) Public Schools and the Prince George's Private Industry Council to provide workplace literacy classes at worksites for employees of 10 different employers. Workplace-specific, work-related curricula have been developed in either English for speakers of other languages or in basic reading and mathematics job skills for each site. The 12-page report is followed by curriculum samples organized by the 10 employers: Prince George's County Maintenance Yard at Brown Station Road, Cintas Corporation, Grace Culinary Systems, Laurel Race Course, Litton-Amecom, Loral-Computer Sciences Corporation, New Carrollton Public Works, Prince George's Hospital Center, and Sovran Bank. An introductory sheet for each employer follows this format: site, instructor(s), time (whether volunteer or work release, dates, days, and class times), student description, and instructor summary. Sample curriculum materials for specified Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) objectives follow. The CASAS objective may be narrowed by a site-specific objective. For each objective are provided these types of curriculum materials: paper-and-pencil exercises, diagrams, review sheets, informational sheets, questions, or tests. Three outside evaluation reports are appended. The first analyzes learners' responses related to reasons for enrollment and helpfulness of class. The second describes and evaluates the program materials in use and workplace-relatedness of curriculum. The third focuses on curriculum development and program administration. (YLB)
