Summary

These eight chapters share diverse experiences, lessons, and tips gleaned by the Massachusetts Workplace Literacy Consortium. "Workplace Needs Analysis (WNA)" (Harneen Chernow, Emily Singer, Jenny Lee Utech) focuses on the Worker Education Program's (WEP's) strategy, including tools, access, interviews and focus groups, presenting findings to the Planning and Evaluation Team (PET) and union, and process evaluation. "PETs" (Betsy Bedell, Joe Conolly, Jane Shea) addresses starting a PET, developing buy-in, setting the agenda, and issues and problems to address. "Labor/Management (L/M) Partnerships" (Harneen Chernow, Joe Connolly) describes how to integrate a site's L/M relationship into a WEP's everyday operations. "Workplace Education Classes and Curriculum Development" (Jenny Lee Utech) discusses curriculum developed from PET requests; uncovering workplace themes in the classroom; and workplace documents, safety, and workers' issues as lesson material. "Student Assessment" (Emily Singer, Jane Shea, Jim Ward) looks at WEP and Quinsigamond Community College assessment tools. "Program Evaluation" (Jenny Lee Utech) describes WEP evaluation tools. "Institutionalization of the Workplace Education Partnership" (Betsy Bedell, Joe Connolly) describes four experiences and the JVS and L/M WEP approaches. "Workplace Education Consortia" (Jane Brown) describes the Bristol Community College experience and provides program recommendations and guidelines.
