Career Resources Development Center, Inc., San Francisco, CA.
Project EXCEL is a federally-funded workplace literacy program involving hotel enterprises in the San Francisco (California) Bay area. Its focus is on identification and instruction of literacy skills essential to job success for limited-English-proficient (LEP) workers. Training is intended to enable employees to understand written work orders, enhance communication with supervisors and co-workers, and encourage greater involvement through team building and critical thinking. This training module was designed for LEP workers in the housekeeping department of one participating hotel, and focuses on worker safety and hotel health insurance procedures. It was also intended for a predominantly Chinese-speaking audience. An introductory section gives an overview of the curriculum and offers suggestions for classroom presentation. The curriculum consists of six instructional units on these topics: parts of the body; water, fumes, and falls; fire and shock; safety signs and other accidents; reporting accidents; and hotel security. Each unit contains worksheets and written exercises. Answer keys and the listening script to accompany the units are appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
