How can we facilitate the two-way process of immigrant integration through adult immigrant students’ participation in civic and community activities? Our community benefits from the cultural, social, and economic contributions of immigrants. As well, adult students’ engagement in their community supports their sense of belonging and the development of practical skills.

The training is designed for instructors teaching adult English language Learners (learners may be in ABE, ASE, ESL, etc.). The training will help educators support immigrants through civics education as understood within the lens of the California Immigrant Integration Initiative and aligned to approved EL Civics metrics. Participants will learn about the Immigrant Integration Framework, explore the resources from the Teaching Skills That Matter in Adult Education (TSTM) project, and gain skills to better support their immigrant students in their classrooms and programs.

This course takes place on Moodle for four consecutive weeks. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish.

Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (16 hours); they are also eligible to apply to CSUS for 1.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), if they wish.

Goals There is no registration fee to participate; CALPRO professional development opportunities are available to all California Adult Education Program (CAEP) agencies and employees.
Location Online
Facilitator The goal of this module is to enable instructors to (1) understand the California immigrant integration context, and (2) plan instruction that supports immigrant integration by aligning to the objectives of the Participation in Civics and Community Life Goal Area of the Immigrant Integration Framework, using the Teaching Skills That Matter (TSTM) lessons and tools and preapproved Civic Objectives and Additional Assessment Plans (COAAPs).
