ESL for Farm Safety. Student Workbook [and] Teacher's Manual.
Silc, Kathleen Flannery; Outterson, Beth
The instructional materials, intended for limited-English-proficient farm workers, provide information on the safe use of pesticides and on pesticide-related illness on the job. The seven lessons are designed to teach English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) learners vocabulary and communication skills related to themselves, their farm occupations, the nature of pesticides, usage and warning labels, health risks, symptoms of illness, emergency procedures, health-promotion measures, and worker rights concerning safety and health. The student workbook contains lessons and exercises. The teacher's manual contains suggested classroom techniques and procedures keyed to the student workbook, a list of National Worker Protection offices, with addresses, a list of Association of Farmworker Opportunity Programs' AmeriCorps Pesticide Safety Coordinating Offices, a worker protection assessment form, and the text of the student workbook.
