Nickles, Ann; And Others
This core curriculum is designed for use in helping employees participating in a workplace-specific basic skills program develop basic team-building skills while simultaneously developing basic reading, writing, and mathematics skills. Although many of the instructional materials and sample forms included are applicable to employees in most industries and therefore suitable for use directly as provided, other materials are general "shells" that list topics to be covered and must be supplemented with information/materials specific to given companies/industries. The following topics are covered in the instructional units included: your company and industry, accountability, your pay and benefits, taxes, on the job, calculator operations, company forms, computer basics, problem solving, interpersonal relationships, handwriting, and writing skills. Each unit contains some or all of the following: objectives; curriculum outline; lesson plan detailing the activities to be completed in each lesson; teacher information on topics such as sources of instructional and resource materials, materials/supplies needed, and recommended background materials; and sample forms, student handouts, learning activities and exercises, vocabulary lists, and answer keys.
