Method 1

Something like this might work for you,

var roles = await _userMgr.GetRolesAsync(user);
var claims = new List<Claim>();

claims.Add(new Claim("Email", model.Email));
claims.Add(new Claim(ClaimTypes.NameIdentifier, user.Id));
foreach (var role in roles)
   claims.Add(new Claim(ClaimTypes.Role, role));

GetRolesAsync(user) returns a List of role names (strings) there may be more than 1.
