Dear LINCS Community members,
Join us from February 23-25, 2015 for a special conversation on adult citizenship education with the Office of Citizenship within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
With the goal of helping participants prepare students for naturalization interviews and tests, this event will be of particular interest to teachers of citizenship and civics to adult English language learners, those helping eligible Lawful Permanent Residents prepare for the naturalization interview and test, adult ESL teachers, and program administrators. The discussion will highlight the linking of content standards and foundation skills to citizenship education to develop thematic lessons, as well as other USCIS resources.
Additionally, some of the subtopics to be highlighted include:
- Building an effective citizenship curricula, syllabi, lesson plans, and classroom activities;
- Helping students improve English skills in preparation for the naturalization test; and
- Current naturalization test preparation resources.
This conversation will take place in the Adult English Language Learners and Program Management group. If you are not already a member of one of these groups, please join in order to participate in the discussion.
