The Workwrite series is a collection of instructional workbooks focusing on the functions and features of workplace documents. The series is aimed at engaging adults in understanding and using documents they will encounter in entry-level positions in fields such as the industrial, clerical, retail, and hospitality sectors. The Workwrite series provides reproducible lesson plans and activities with a wide array of authentic workplace documents such as lists, notices, work schedules, job postings, office memos, agendas, meeting minutes, and more.
Many workers do not access policies or procedures on a regular basis. Policies and Procedures aims to help students understand the purpose and importance of workplace policies and procedures. Understanding that they do exist and how to access them is important information for those entering or already in the workforce. The length and organization of the example documents used in this resource lend themselves to the application of basic reading skills such as skimming and scanning to more complex skills such as reading to compare or synthesize information.
