My United States

It’s hard to make history and civics relevant and interesting to many students. Motheread has developed a compelling curriculum and training to meet this need. Correlated to both CASAS competencies and the U.S. Citizenship Test questions, the My United States curriculum helps students develop a personal perspective and context for learning about history, government, and community life. During the 2-day training, instructors learn how to integrate civics education into Basic Skills or EL Civics courses and  motivate students to learn information required to pass the Adult High School Diploma program or citizenship test. Participants completing the My US requirements will be awarded 1.3 CEU’s from North Carolina State University.
