  1. Getting Ahead in the Workplace: Building Stability and Resources for a Better Life at Work and Home, Revised Edition

    For those who struggle to get by every day, actually getting ahead hasn’t been part of your story. Life is unstable and unpredictable. Getting and keeping a good job seems nearly impossible, yet doing so is key to turning your life around. But what if you were able to take control of your future? How would your story change? For employers, the instability of your workforce – especially among low-wage or part-time employees – is more than inconvenient: it’s expensive. But what if your policies and practices helped your people establish control and stability in their lives? How would that affect engagement and turnover – and your bottom line? Getting ahead in the workplace solves these challenges by helping under-resourced people build resources and gain control over their future stories.

  2. Cooperative Learning & French: Beginning to Intermediate

The fifteen chapters cover: community, clothes, weather, school, food, professions, daily activities, geography, time, date, music, movies, sports, verbs and adjectives.
