The ABCs of Practical Literacy

Abstract: 
This resource book includes content-based ESL literacy activities for adult learners. Forty activities are arranged in three categories: economic literacy activities, employment literacy activities and personal management literacy activities. Activities are benchmarked to Phase 1 (initial, developing, and adequate) and Phase 2 (initial, developing and adequate) CLB ESL literacy levels. Each activity includes a CLB literacy level, a list of language competencies addressed in the activity, an overview of the activity, and comprehensive instructions. Also included are the materials (flashcards, worksheets, pictures, forms, transparency masters, etc.) required for each activity.
