Workplace Plus, an innovative four-level standards-based English course, readies adults for self-sufficiency in the three principal areas of their lives: the workplace, the community, and the home. Workplace Plus integrates the CASAS life skill competencies and SCANS Competencies and Foundation Skills with a complete language syllabus and relevant and practical social language. Workplace Plus 1, by Joan Saslow and Tim Collins, is written for beginning learners. It rapidly enables them to: *understand spoken and written general employment-related language. *communicate in their own words outside of an English class. *understand the culture and behavioral expectations of their new environment and workplace. Workplace Plus is correlated to the following national standards: SCANS Competencies and Foundation Skills, CASAS Life Skill Competencies, and EFF Content Standards. All correlations are downloadable from the Workplace Plus companion website.
