Janitorial Unit Prepared for Carr Grocery Employees. Custodian's Guide Prepared for the Anchorage School District Custodial Employees. Workplace Curriculum.
Jones, Jan; And Others
This packet contains lesson plans and an evaluation for a janitorial unit designed to teach reading and writing skills to grocery store janitors. The lesson plans were developed, using the Laubach literacy method, for a workplace literacy project at Carr Grocery Store in Anchorage, Alaska. The lesson plans, which are correlated with Laubach skills books level 2, include conversational skills (dialogue, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and free conversation) and reading and writing skills and practice. The lessons focus on topics from the workplace such as cleaning floors and restrooms, general cleaning, work attitudes and behaviors, and workplace conversation. The evaluation requires employees to demonstrate knowledge and use of work-related forms and job duties. A custodian's guide prepared for the Anchorage, Alaska school district custodial employees provides information on care of tools and equipment, fire prevention, and a detailed cleaning guide. (KC)
