Adult Citizenship Education Sample Curriculum for a Low Beginning ESL Level Course
The Office of Citizenship within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) developed this sample curriculum to outline the components, structure, and process involved with creating an adult citizenship education curriculum.The curriculum is organized around the beginning level lesson plans and the Adult Citizenship Education Content Standards and Foundation Skills that are available on the Citizenship Resource Center website (uscis.gov/citizenship).
This curriculum consists of four main components: the curriculum abstract, the scope and sequence, the syllabus, and the units and lesson plans. Please note that this curriculum is offered only as an example to help guide administrators and teachers as they develop their own curricula. Each adult education organization has unique strengths, challenges, and constraints, and should develop a curriculum that best fits the needs of its students, program, and community.
