Global Talent Untapped Series: English in the Workplace Lesson Plans

Abstract: 
This resource presents 40 English in the Workplace (EWP) lesson plans designed for teaching English as a Second Language in food processing facilities. Each 2-hour lesson plan is referenced to the CLB; targets 2-3 measurable learning objectives; provides practice in speaking, listening, reading, writing, and document use; and identifies vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and culture teaching points. Activities are designed to teach form and function in an engaging and interactive manner through information gap, jigsaw, and role-play activities. The lesson plans, supported by photocopiable student handouts, can be taught in any order, and are grouped according to the following themes: Orientation to Job; Working with Equipment and Tools; Working with People; Working with Documentation, Working with Food, Workplace Safety, and Off the Job. Some of the topics that are covered include FOIP, HACCP, GMPs, reporting problems, conflict resolution, small talk, and reading and writing notes, notices and memos. Other topics focus on settlement issues, including money, public transportation, shopping, driving, healthcare. While most of the resources use examples from food processing settings, many of the lessons (with the exception of those in the Working with Equipment & Tools and Working with Food sections) would be relevant to a broader range of workplace settings. Coil bound booklet - approximately 350 pages.
