Reading at Work: Workplace Reader

In almost every occupation in Canada, workers read for two or more hours a day.

Reading at Work illustrates how the Essential Skills of reading text and document use are applied in the workplace. Reading at Work Workplace Reader uses authentic workplace documents and real-life stories of workers on the job to form the basis of learning activities.

For students and workers, the stories and activities in the Workplace Reader provide a unique opportunity to practice reading skills such as locating, combining, comparing and contrasting, integrating, explaining, and evaluating information. These skills are transferable and used by workers in many occupations.

Reading at Work will enable instructors and trainers from the fields of adult/workplace education, literacy, and employment counseling, to focus on the information processing structure and strategies that lead to increased learner success and worker competency.
