Abstract:
"Recent government initiatives and funding for EL/civics education reflect the increasing importance of civics instruction. It is equally important that practitioners who work with English language learners understand ways to teach the subject. Whether designing an EL/civics curriculum or developing a single lesson plan, administrators and teachers should be sure that choices regarding topics, approaches, and materials are based on the learners’ specific needs." This Brief addresses these issues. Lists of references and additional resources are included.
