EMPLOY-ABILITY Teacher Handbook [and] Student Workbook, Spring 1998.
This document contains two guidebooks--a workbook for students and a handbook for teachers. Class activities are designed for English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) students at level 1B of the Washington State Core Competencies. Some activities may be appropriate for level 1A and/or level 2 students too. Materials are based on experience and are designed to help low-level ESL students find an entry-level job, complete the necessary paperwork, and behave appropriately in the workplace. Special emphasis is given to the communication skills needed in the first few days of employment. The books are divided into 9 units, each covering a different subject area. They include the following: "Names of Occupations"; "Experience and Skills"; "Looking for a Job"; "Application Forms"; "The Job Interview"; "Paperwork"; "Learning a Job"; "Safety"; and "Personal Qualities." In addition, the teacher handbook contains an appendix with full-size line drawings depicting various occupations, items, and activities. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (KFT)
