Van Duzer, Carol; Burt, Miriam

The video portrays typical experiences such as exploring educational options, looking for work, helping children in school, communicating with coworkers, and giving and receiving job evaluations. The textbook consists of ten thematic units derived from these experiences. The video and text are suited to a variety of settings, including workplace education, adult education, job training centers, community colleges, and high schools. Numerous, charts, diagrams, illustrations, and blank forms and handouts (suitable for reproduction) are included. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (KFT)
