Citizenship for Elders is a unique handbook for teachers and administrators on creating and managing a citizenship program for the older learner. This handbook brings together the observations and insights of teachers from across the country on older learners from a wide range of cultures. It is based on a nationwide survey of 200 programs. It identifies the issues in teaching elders and makes recommendations for instruction and program design. The recommendations are practice-based, with a focus on innovative and promising practices. The suggestions on learning activities, cultural considerations for the classroom, and strategies to address common health issues will be particularly helpful to teachers. CLINIC hopes this free handbook will help service providers strengthen their programs and assist many more elders to secure their future in the U.S. by becoming citizens.
