Project VISIONS. Enhancing Your Employment through Educational Opportunities. Student Workbook for Increasing Vocabulary for Hospital Workers.
Vitale, Edmund, Jr.
This packet contains an instructor guide and student workbook detailing 32 activities that hospital workers can use in a classroom setting to improve their vocabulary and spelling skills. The activities encompass the following: (1) different ways to look up words to spell them correctly; (2) pronunciation of words used around the workplace; (3) word labeling and categorization activities that allow us to look at these workplace words from different points of view and in different contexts; and (4) development of a personal handbook of workplace terms that students can use to study, record new words, and use at their jobs. The packet contains a syllabus for the 13-week course, including information on instructional goal, course description, objectives, rationale for the course, grading system, and major curriculum topics. A pre- and post-evaluation and an answer key for the student activities are also included. (KC)
