Online ActivitiesWorkplace Essential Skills
Workplace Essential Skills has four subject areas. Click on a subject (e.g., Reading at Work), then click on a unit (e.g. Unit 18: Following Directions).
In both the Video Activity and the Internet Activity sections, you will find a subsection called "Activity," where you will type comments or answers in a text box. After you finish typing, click on the button below the text box to save your work in your portfolio.
Pre-GED Connection has five subject areas, just like the GED exam. Click on a subject (e.g., Math), and you'll go to a page with a list of topics.
Each topic has a sentence with a link to a website outside LiteracyLink, where you can learn more about the subject and get practice learning online. The sites weren't chosen just because they're informative - they're interesting, too!
GED Connection is covers the same five subjects as the GED exam. Click on a subject (e.g., Reading). Each subject has Learning Modules, Test Taking Tips, Internet Activities and two Practice Tests. You may want to start by taking a practice test to see how strong your skills are.
Both the Learning Modules and the Internet Activities sections have "Activity" subsections where you will type comments or answers in a text box. The Internet Activities section contains links to external websites where you'll go for more information. You can copy text from the website you visit and paste the text into your text boxes. Be sure to click the Save button below each text box to save your work in your portfolio.
Twenty-six Pre-GED Connection links take you to outside websites where you can learn more about reading, writing, science, social studies and math. The sites were picked not just because they are informative - they're interesting, too.
Each title corresponds with a chapter in the Pre-GED Connection workbooks, and each underlined link to a website is placed in a sentence or paragraph explaining what you might expect to find or do at the site.
You can explore the sites and use interactive material to reinforce information and concepts that relate to the video and workbook lessons. These Pre-GED links do not include a writing activity or quiz. They are an introduction to learning online, and open the door for independent inquiry.
