Abstract : This report is concerned with the development of a Navy-relevant Verbal Skills Curriculum for use in the Navy Recruit Training Commands (RTCs). The project was undertaken by the Training Analysis and Evaluation Group as one of several initiatives in response to tasking by the Chief of Naval Education and Training in the area of improvement of basic skills. This curriculum is designed to improve the language fluency skills of Navy recruits, particularly those who speak English as a second language. The results of a field test of the curriculum by personnel of the Orlando RTC Academic Remedial Training (ART) division were positive, indicating that it is a useful tool and that students are interested in, and motivated by, Navy-related materials. This curriculum has been approved and implemented in ART divisions at the RTCs. (Author)
