English Language Activities for a Changing World of Work.
This package contains materials that deal with issues of unemployment and labor adjustment for use in classes in English as a Second Language. The materials are designed to give teachers some ideas of how to raise issues pertaining to unemployment, self-assessment, and retraining. The general approach provides a framework for students to talk about the issues and to develop English language skills that will enable them to cope with these issues more effectively. The teachers' notes provide an overview of the content goals and language goals for each of the classroom activities. The notes for each of the five units provide information about the content, suggestions for presenting the materials, and observations about some issues that might arise during the unit. Suggestions are included about the amount of time each unit requires. The units cover the following topics: surviving unemployment, looking for work, talking about work experience, talking about skills, and retraining. The resources listed include names of organizations that help unemployed workers, information about the translation and evaluation of documents, and sources of four free materials for teachers and five job search materials.
