Technical Writing

Found in: language arts and literature; money skills; writing across the curriculum

I include life skills vocabulary and writing in my curricula. Using the language that students will need to understand in the workplace, I teach form writing. My students learn to complete employment applications, create resumes, fill out W-4 forms, do banking and other personal finance, complete tax forms and medical insurance papers and much more.

I try to have a business leader come into the classroom at least once a month to discuss the business importance of the subject we are studying. I also incorporate the daily newspaper. Some good workplace literature textbooks are ‘American Literature For Life and Work,’ ‘British Literature For Life And Work,’ ‘And Literature For Life And Work I And II.’
