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.

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 .Saslow, Joan M. is the author of 'Workplace Plus Living and Working in English', published 2003 under ISBN 9780130943514 and ISBN 0130943517.
