Civics is Everywhere! Working Civics into Your ABE Classroom

About This Session


This presentation is an innovative way of looking at incorporating civics into your ABE classroom. By infusing content areas, you’ll learn to build lessons using your state or local content standards.

What we'll cover:

Many adult basic education programs have mastered the art of reading, language/writing, and mathematics. However, many students are at a loss when it comes to basic knowledge in civics, U.S. Government, and American History.

All of the basics can be taught from a civics education lens. Attendees will walk through a structure that identifies key concepts in civics and civic responsibilities, while maximizing student engagement. Instructors, tutors, and curriculum specialists will be able to see a sample of a complete lesson plan covering a topic, and offering ways to include writing, mathematics, communication, research, history, politics, and with digital literacy as part of their lesson.

This civics lesson-planning structure gives teachers, instructors, and tutors a guide to incorporate Civics into their classroom tomorrow. The format of this session will also include hands-on work. All levels of expertise are welcome.
