WorkStyles: Pre-Employment for the Low Level English Speaker.
Sample, Barbara J.
The WorkStyles program is described in some detail. The program is designed specifically for limited English speakers to address barriers to learning and employment grounded in a lack of confidence in the use of English. In order to develop these skills for low level learners, the training is divided into various segments including the following: "Active Listening"; "Completing Applications"; "Identifying Skills and Positive Qualities"; and "Doing Well in Interviews." Students in these programs have lost a lot of control over their lives and the option to communicate in their own language. This program, by helping them to communicate more effectively in the U.S., gives them back some of that control. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (KFT)
