Dixon-Krauss, Lisbeth; McClanahan, Linda
This paper explains the rationale and methods for integrating workplace literacy with English literature instruction for high school or adult students. The workplace literacy/English literature activities presented include: (1) a newsletter format reporting on the major historical periods in English literature; (2) a business project report used with "Beowulf"; and (3) a business training or education proposal used with "Pygmalion." Authentic examples of two students' works are included. (Author/RS)
