Title type
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. The new Grammar Booster provides extra practice beyond each lesson.

Workplace Plus 4, by Joan Saslow, is written for high-intermediate 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.
