Chapter 2 Business Writing

The following e-activities are based on Chapter 2 of the LINC 5-7 Classroom Activities, Volume 1. A printable version of these volumes, accompanying audio files, and the e-activities can be accessed at Settlement.Org on the Language Training page. These resources were developed by the Toronto Catholic District School Board (2010),with funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (Ontario Region). The e-resources are designed to be used in a blended learning context, where learners and instructors meet face-to-face and utilize a combination of both the print and online resources. Please note that the linguistic complexity of the two resource types (print and e-activities) is not always congruent. The online versions of some of the activities are generally more accessible to learners at a lower benchmark level than the print versions.
