Workplace Literacy Teacher Training: The Foundations.
Harrington, Lois G.; And Others
These four learning guides comprise one of four packages in the Workplace Literacy Teacher Training series that provides information and skills necessary for the user to become a successful instructor in an effective workplace literacy program. The guides in this package are designed to prepare the instructor to ensure that the workplace literacy program has the foundational elements in place. Each guide consists of these components: introduction, objectives, list of activities to help meet the objectives, readings followed by questions for reflection, application activity, evaluation guidelines, and annotated bibliography. The first guide looks at the instructional setting and addresses techniques that can be used to relate workplace literacy programming to the needs of business and industry. The second guide describes the process for using the results of job and literacy task analysis and skill identification to develop an overall training plan and specific performance objectives. The third guide presents a model format and guidelines for lesson plan development and a process for gathering feedback about teaching effectiveness and using that feedback to document successes and improve instruction. The fourth guide offers techniques for gathering and developing instructional materials for the program that reflect the reality of the workplace and are appropriate for the chosen objectives and learner needs and abilities. Contains an annotated bibliography of 13 entries. (YLB)
