Citizenship Resource: A classroom resource for teaching citizenship topics to adult English language learners
|Org:||Toronto Catholic District School Board|
The Citizenship Resource is an instructor's resource for planning, developing and teaching lessons about Canadian citizenship concepts in LINC, ESL and citizenship preparation classes.
Developed as a companion piece to the study guide Discover Canada: The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship, the Citizenship Resource complements a series of CIC-funded resources for LINC programs:
- LINC 1-5 Curriculum Guidelines;
- LINC 5-7 Curriculum Guidelines;
- LINC 1-4 Classroom Activities; and
- LINC 5-7 Classroom Activities: Volumes 1 & 2.
The Citizenship Resource consists of seven chapters based on citizenship-related themes that reflect the overall organization and content of Discover Canada, the study guide that helps newcomers prepare to become Canadian citizens.
The chapters are:
- Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship
- Who We Are
- Canada's History
- Canada's Government
- Elections in Canada
- Canadian Symbols
- Canada's Regions and Economy
Each chapter consists of two parts:
- a planning framework for CLB 1-8 that provides ideas and resources for planning and developing lessons using features of CLB-based and task-based instruction; and
- a Sample Activitiessection with instructional tools illustrating the planning process presented in the framework. These tools include ready-made reproducible activities with audio material and related instructor notes.
