This paper explains the rationale and methods for integrating workplace literacy with English literature instruction. The workplace literacy/English literature activities presented include: (a) a newsletter format reporting on the major historical periods in English literature, (b) a business project report used with Beowulf, and (c) a business training or education proposal used with Pygmalion. Authentic examples of students' work are included.
