In addition to the ample opportunities for reading and writing practice contained in the Student's Book, the Workplace Plus Workbook contains further reading and writing exercises. The Workbook is valuable for homework or for in-class activities. An added feature is a test preparation activity for each unit, with CASAS-like and BEST Test-like items which ensure that learners can bubble in and scope with the formats of standardized language tests. Workplace Plus, an innovative four-level ESL course, readies adults for self-sufficiency in the three principal areas of their lives: the workplace, the community, and the home. Workplace Plus integrates the CASAS life skill competencies and SCANS Compentencies and Foundation Skills with a complete language syllabus and relevant social language.
