Citizenship: A Guide to Good Teaching.
Mitchell, Elisabeth
The purpose of this handbook is to encourage citizenship teachers and tutors to teach in ways that will increase the likelihood that their students will pass citizenship tests and interviews. It provides an overview of the citizenship process and includes activity ideas and a discussion of the elements of good teaching on this subject. This handbook is meant to be a companion to the excellent citizenship textbooks currently available (and listed in the bibliography). It is not a citizenship curriculum, as the listed texts already provide the necessary information to pass the citizenship test and interview. Reports from teachers and tutors reveal that even with the best of texts, students need more practice. The activities presented here are meant to give teachers and tutors ideas for how to encourage and extend practice so that students truly have a chance to master the skills, language, and content of citizenship. The text is filled with numerous charts, illustrations, figures, sample forms, and other resource suggestions and references. A note about confidentiality and legal issues is included, as is an extensive bibliography. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (Author/KFT)
