The Machinery of Management: Communication I (MM1). Workforce 2000 Partnership.
Enterprise State Junior Coll., AL.; MacArthur State Technical Coll., Opp, AL.
This curriculum package on communications, the machinery of management for new hires, has been developed by the Workforce 2000 Partnership, a network of industries and educational institutions that provides training in communication, computation, and creative thinking to employees and supervisors in textile, apparel, and carpet industries at 15 plants in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. The curriculum guide provides a quick view of all major curriculum components: job title for which the curriculum was developed; general instructional objective; overall time; and the chart which is used by reading across the columns to match the specific instructional objective with the estimated amount of time required, learning activities, resources required, and evaluation method. A closure activity reviews and assesses skills learned and may identify needs for further learning. The lesson plan explains the activities in detail. Handouts, transparencies, and pre- and posttest are provided. This module is designed to teach employees to use communication skills. Objectives include the following: initiate action in response to supervisor, instructor, or customer requests; interpret task-related communications, such as following, clarifying, or giving feedback to oral instructions; use English acceptable with supervisors, peers, and clients; engage in appropriate social interaction with supervisors, peers, and clients; use appropriate nonverbal communication; and organize information into an oral report.
