Civics and Citizenship Civics: Creating Meaningful Lessons in an Immigration Reform Context Facilitator: Natalia de Cuba Romero Audience: ESOL instructors Whether preparing for a citizenship test, campaigning for the DREAM Act, or trying to understand how immigration legislation gets through or gets mired in Congress, adult ESOL students need to know how government works. We will explore a variety of multimedia resources (especially the free ones!), games, and issue-based ways to engage students in understanding the Constitution, the structure of the U.S. government, and how these affect immigrants directly. Bring a flash drive, because small groups will create classroom-ready lesson plans to take home. Date: CIV 14-100 - Wednesday, October 9 Time: 6:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
