LINCS Community

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 External link opens in new window or tab).

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 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 External link opens in new window or tab and Program Management External link opens in new window or tab group. If you are not already a member of one of these groups, please join in order to participate in the discussion.
