Writing for the Workplace
A new resource from Newfoundland and Labrador called Writing for the Workplace: Writing Process with Workplace Content is a flexible and participatory program for learners at a range of writing levels. The program includes a Facilitators Handbook and Learners Handouts for 10 two-hour sessions. However it is not a workbook program. It is interactive with the facilitator demonstrating, modelling, explaining and facilitating as the learners question, contribute information, provide feedback and engage in practice.
