U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services provides a study guide for the English and Civics tests that are major components of the U.S. naturalization process (the way someone born outside the United States applies to become a citizen). Explore the test guide here, then select 3-5 questions or vocabulary words. By 11:59 pm on Tuesday, 9/11, write a discussion board post on your selected material. What kinds of knowledge do they ask the test taker to demonstrate? Why would an organization like USCIS determine these questions or words to be a vital part of becoming an American? Feel free to use your post to raise questions or observations about the test guide that you’d like us to discuss on Wednesday, too!
