Hello,
Does anyone have or know of resources &/or curriculum for English in the building trades (painting/papering, roofing, general labor, etc.)?
Thanks for ideas, suggestions, wisdom.  Judy Panek

The Canadians have some marvelous comprehensive curriculums for a variety of occupations.  One of them is the "Skilled Trades Helpers and Laborers Curriculum."  You can find information about it at www.lleo.ca
