Build on your talents: Essential Skills Activities for Trades (2010)

Designed for educators, trainers, tradespeople, apprentices, and people considering construction careers, this collection of activities links Essential Skills with workplace applications. Students use the workbook to practice Essential Skills, including Reading, Document Use and Math, by doing exercises based on actual construction materials and situations.

The activities can be used singly, in groups, or as a complete series. Levels of difficulty, trade topics, and combination of Essential Skills vary.

The activities deal with a variety of topics, including understanding blueprints; reading material safety data sheets; repair procedures; and calculating fitting allowances for pipes.
