English as a Second Language/Workplace Education.
This learning module is intended as a worksite-specific example of a curriculum that addresses the specific job-related language needs of nonnative speakers of English. The module, which is designed to be presented in three 10-week sessions, focuses on different parts of the work orders typically encountered by workers in two different departments of a manufacturing company. The first session focuses on general information about work orders and identifying important information, and the second session focuses on fabrics, fabric colors and abbreviations, and style numbers. In the third session, the terminology covered in the first two sessions is applied to company operations, including identification of thread colors and headwear styles. Each session outline contains some or all of the following: an objective, list of session topics, list of materials needed, suggested activities, alternate activity, evaluation activities/criteria, and handouts. Also included is a critical tasks list. (MN)
