Overview

This workshop offers an overview of the citizenship process, including benefits, eligibility, and the application process.

    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Instructors, counselors, and volunteers who work with immigrant students. While it is designed mainly around the needs of ESOL teachers, adult education teachers who work with immigrant students might also benefit from knowing how the naturalization process works and how to answer students’ questions about it.
Description

This workshop details the four components of the citizenship test, how the test is administered, and what students need to do to pass it. The presenter will ask you to help her stage a naturalization interview while she provides explanations of why examiners ask particular questions. Finally, she will offer strategies for test preparation in the classroom, with an emphasis on helping at-risk students (i.e., students who might not pass due to low proficiency or literacy, anxiety, or disabilities). For more information, please contact Dori McCormack at dmccormack@hcc.edu.
