Teaching Civics and Citizenship to Adult Learners

Citizenship and Civics education at Literacy Source encompasses more than traditional citizenship preparation.  Throughout history, one of the primary purposes of adult education has been to prepare people for participation in a democracy (1). Beyond learning about immigration and naturalization and preparing for the “citizenship test,” our approach to citizenship encompasses civic participation and advocacy and encourages adults to become better learners, workers, parents and community members.
 
This section includes information about the naturalization process as well as resources for incorporating civics into instruction for all learners.  Click on a category below for more information or to access relevant online and onsite resources.
