General Workplace Curriculum Guide: English as a Second Language for the Workplace.
Garcia, Paula; And Others
The guide outlines program design and curricula for a series of workplace education courses for limited-English-proficient adult immigrants. The courses are designed to raise basic skills in reading, writing, mathematics, problem-solving, and communication. Sections describe the program's target audience, objectives, goals, design, staff, theory and philosophy, methodology and materials, ideas for student-centered activities, suggestions for maximizing student participation, and evaluation techniques. Curricula are then charted for each of five instructional themes: work issues/workplace communication; work forms; quality control; company rules; and workplace health and safety. Within each of these themes, specific goals, language skills, lesson ideas and activities, and recommended materials are detailed. Following these are the objectives and/or specialized vocabulary lists for eight different light manufacturing companies participating in the program. A bibliography lists additional worker-centered student texts and resource and teachers' guides. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
