This resource is intended for use with ESL literacy learners who have little or no formal education in their first language and are at about a CLB 1.

The LINC Literacy Employment Resource provides initial material to help literacy learners:

  • develop, practise and reinforce literacy skills and strategies necessary to read and write in English
  • acquire job-based vocabulary and information about the Canadian workplace
  • gain an awareness of their employment-related skills and experience

Format

The LINC Literacy Employment Resource is divided into four parts. Each part includes three units: two on occupations and one providing information about the Canadian workplace. Each unit is subdivided into topics.

Although all the topics are related to employment, this document was designed so that many parts can be used in other LINC themes. There is no specified teaching order of the units. Units and topics can be chosen according to the interest and ability of the learners.

The LINC Literacy Employment Resource was developed in 2000. Funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and developed by the Toronto Catholic District School Board, it consist of reproducible classroom activities and is a support document for the LINC Literacy Component, 1997.
