Some research was done by past Cal Poly students into the industry, faculty and student desire for a Spanish Language class through multiple surveys. The results indicated that all parties agreed that a Spanish Language Construction Management class would be beneficial to add to the curriculum. In this project a student at Cal Poly was tasked with creating a Construction Management Spanish Language Class. The deliverables for this project are to provide the Construction Management department with a syllabus, course schedule, thirteen PowerPoints for use as lecture material, thirteen activities for students to apply what they have learned, and thirteen quizzes and an exam to ensure students are retaining the information they are being taught. This class is designed to teach students how to use Spanish within a Construction setting with the outcome of providing students with the skills necessary to create toolbox talks and safety meetings in Spanish. The purpose of this project is to provide the curriculum necessary to implement a Construction Management Spanish Language Class to create a safer work environment for Hispanic workers who speak little to no English. This project is to have the deliverables implemented into a class to be taught at Cal Poly.
