The materials presented here are visual aids used in a presentation on citizenship instruction for older and physically challenged adults. They consist of a series of "screens" containing information on: demographic information on samples of citizenship students in 1995 and 1997, illustrating changes in the population; motivations of and barriers faced by the new population; effects of aging that have implications for the classroom; visual, hearing, and learning challenges for older learners, and classroom solutions for them; challenges from other sources, including poor study skills and literacy problems; the citizenship teacher's challenge; ways to address physical issues in the classroom environment; ways to address motivation and lifestyle challenges; a performance contract for students; a sample letter to the student's family affirming participation in citizenship learning; a sample unit outline; notes on possible classroom learning aids; sample visual aids for a unit on the three branches of the federal government; classroom procedures for dictation, testing, and use of realia; and a brief list of World Wide Web resources.
