community literacy trainings
Techniques for supportive citizenship tutoring
Date: September 14
Time: 5:30pm - 7:00pm CT
Free for members
$15 for non-members
As teachers and tutors, we know we're not supposed to teach to the test but when we're helping our neighbors become citizens, all bets are off. This is the one case where teaching to the test - the Naturalization Interview - can be more effective.
In this training, we'll focus on techinques and activites that can boost your citizenship tutoring skills and help make the process as smooth as possible.
We'll also spend some time answering questions like:
"Can I help my learner fill out their application?"
"Do I have to know all my learner's personal information to help them with the interview?"
Whether you're new to Citizenship or are interested in learning more, this training will cover everything from the interview process to how to celebrate after your learner passes.
This training is part of our Instructional Tecniques training series. These trainings are designed with tutors giving direct instruction in mind although, as always, everyone is welcome to join.
