New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills Curriculum: Course 8 (2010)

Understanding Documents

The New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills (NBAWES) project was designed to help Aboriginal adults improve their literacy skills and their employability. It uses existing workplace Essential Skills curricula, adapted to meet the specific needs of Mi’kmaq and Maliseet adult learners.

The objective of this curriculum unit is to help learners acquire the skills and knowledge to interpret different types of documents, both in life and in the workplace. Participants are expected to describe the different types of information in everyday activity; think about the different ways information is presented; and explore the process of interpreting information.

Instructors are encouraged to use such real-life materials as food labels; school report cards and other communications; fact sheets received with prescription medications; and dictionaries and other reference works.
