Job Literacy (2008)

This document is one in a series of three tutor resources designed for tutors of low-literacy adults. The goal of the series is to help tutors identify the workplace essential skills a student already has, increase his skill set, and develop his awareness of his own capabilities.

The instructor section of each binder part contains sequenced activities reflecting a number of entry-level workplace settings from the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada website.

In the Job Literacy document, the authors focus on increasingly complex literacy skills, including the letters of the alphabet, words, numbers, money, addresses, time, and messages.

In addition to the literacy skills being taught, the authors note that there are elements of a variety of essential skills embedded in the lessons. For instance, exercises in role playing can help improve oral communication.
