Reading and Math.
Baldwin, Anna; And Others
This publication contains materials used in the three phases of the reading and mathematics components of work-specific classes. Each section begins with an overview of developments in that phase. Section 1 focuses on Phase 1 during which math and reading were taught as separate components. It contains a math placement appraisal, worksheets and quizzes for math and trigonometry, and information sheets and exercises on DOS commands and managing a hard disk. Section 2 focuses on Phase 2 during which reading and math components were taught separately. It provides the following: crossword puzzles and word searches that incorporate work-specific vocabulary, main idea practice, reading pretest word problems, line graphs, and a pay stub exercise. Section 3 covers Phase 3 that uses three components to integrate reading, mathematics, communication, and other critical skills: (1) pretest to write an Individual Instruction Plan; (2) cooperative learning groups to solve enrichment activities specific to the plant; and (3) production of a video presentation that addresses departmental education needs. The first component includes PLUS (People Leaping Upward to Success), a mathematics program for the workplace, with objectives, pretest/posttest, individualized education plan, and sample PLUS assessment materials. The second component contains plant-specific applications for math, covering place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals. Miscellaneous tests, activities, and checklists used in the classes are also provided. (YLB)
