Literacy for Work Lessons

These lessons include information about types of jobs and the various skills and training they require. Each lesson includes pictures, worksheets, PowerPoints, and other activities. They are designed for adult English as a Second Language students and show well on interactive whiteboards. The purpose of these lessons is to teach students basic vocabulary words related to particular fields of employment. This is a new section, so check back often for new resources and activities.

Administrative Assistant - These office workers help business managers, executives, and owners deal with paperwork, phone calls, deliveries, and company records.

Employment - This lesson reviews types of jobs. It includes pictures and printable worksheets.

Medical Jobs - Pictures of medical workers and brief descriptions of their jobs make this an interesting lesson for students to follow. The photos show well on computer screens and classroom whiteboards. Like all of our lessons, the vocabulary and writing are direct and clear.

Office Work - Office workers need to complete many tasks: answer phones, write memos, send and accept mail and packages, use computers, and schedule appointments.
