The Anchorage Workplace Literacy (AWL) program was designed to train adult workers who have inadequate basic skills. The "Skill Books Go to Work" model developed in a previous National Workplace Literacy Program was used and modified as needed for the job-specific environments of nine business partners. Job task analyses were done at the beginning of classes to determine the literacy skills needed in the workplace of each business partner. As a result, a curriculum was developed and modified for each workplace. Although the program goal was to teach needed literacy skills to 192 employees, these skills were actually taught to 217 employees (from the 262 who participated in assessment). The project also promoted exemplary business partnerships between AWL and Anchorage businesses. In addition to providing basic education to more than the targeted number of employees, AWL developed a model for replication with other small and intermediate-size businesses and disseminated information about the program. (Appendixes to the 40-page report contain documents from the AWL program, including the following: job task samples, recruitment materials, student assessment materials, staff development samples, dissemination activities, a third-party evaluation, the model program, and curriculum samples.)
