Merlin, Shirley B.
This document contains the performance report, external evaluation, and curricula for the Career Enhancement Program, a workplace literacy partnership conducted by James Madison University and Massanutten Technical Center for five companies in Virginia. The performance report describes how the project delivered individualized workplace literacy instruction to employees via a mobile learning center or in on-site classes at plant sites, meeting a range of mathematics, reading, and language skill needs from beginning to precollege levels, English as a Second Language (ESL), and job-specific skills. Three appendixes contain, respectively, the interview and survey form, curriculum outline, and class schedule; a set of dissemination materials; and external evaluation report (which indicates a high level of satisfaction with project activities). This is followed by nine sets of curriculum materials that constitute by far the greater part of the document. They are: (1) Valley Blox math curriculum; (2) Perdue Farms benefits and safety curricula; (3) Rocco Enterprises benefits drug and alcohol policy, safety, language experience, and math curricula; (4) WLR Foods benefits, drug and alcohol policy, safety, and language experience curricula; (5) Merck and Co. chemistry and math curriculum; (6) Rocco Turkeys ESL curriculum--Getting Dressed for Work; (7) Rocco Turkeys ESL curriculum--Let's Talk to the Supervisor; (8) Wampler Longacre Chickens ESL curriculum--Getting Dressed for Work; and (9) Wampler Longacre Chickens ESL curriculum--Let's Talk to the Line Leader.
