Garcia, Paula; Sharma, Shobha
This workshop engages students of adult basic education (ABE) and English as a second language (ESL) students in the higher levels of communication necessary in the workplace: essay writing, filling out forms, and analyzing data. Students use statistics from the workplace to practice reading and manipulating data, workplace forms to practice filling in cells, and essay writing to describe an accident or training session. This curriculum guide for teachers and students provides the following: objectives, background information, a list of materials needed, a list of six suggested books, a syllabus for orientation, a syllabus for a refresher for continuing students, a bibliography listing six entries, and nine activities using forms and materials used in the workplace, such as vacation requests, word processing documents, resumes, memos, accident report forms, production sheets, and lists of supplies and materials.
