The UK Embedded Portal is an excellent resource for embedded materials. It will need tweaked for US classes but still a great tool.

Hi Sue

These are materials from the UK Embedded Learning Portal but they may be helpful

http://rwp.excellencegateway.org.uk/embeddedlearning/searchresults.cfm?setting=Health_and_safety_(with_manual_handling)&sett_title=Health%20and%20Safety

There are some other material here which might be useful
http://rwp.excellencegateway.org.uk/embeddedlearning/cfbtgeneralinfo.cfm

These reports show some of the embedded models being used in the UK

http://www.nrdc.org.uk/publications_details.asp?ID=106
http://www.nrdc.org.uk/publications_details.asp?ID=21

These guidelines are for providers who want to embed literacy and numeracy into their vocational programmes so you could adapt these slightly as well

you can also look at the Embedded Section of the NZ Literacy Portal

Subject: [Workforce 2014] Embedding literacy into workplaces


Hello Everyone:



I am working on a project in northern Canada - Nunavut. We are looking at models of integrating literacy into the workplace and workplace training and innovative mentoring arrangements for employees at the workplace.



Can anyone recommend reports and projects that identify innovative models that we might consider?



Thank you so much for any suggestions.



Regards,



Sue
