Citizenship Curricula and Teaching Resources
This curriculum will prepare adult learners to:
- navigate the naturalization process
- pass the English, Civics, reading and writing tests
- be successful in the naturalization interview
This curriculum provides guidance for ABE/ESL teachers who are or will be instructing immigrant and refugee adults as they prepare to become naturalized United States citizens. The course materials are intended for use in a stand-alone citizenship preparation course, but may be used as a supplement to a regular ESL course. The curriculum is broken into three sections, each focusing on different knowledge adults must master to become citizens. Each section contains two or more Units. In each Unit, teachers will find an overview, detailing unit objectives and core resources, and a series of lessons that address those objectives.
