Product Description
Ensure your Civics or US History students are citizen-ready before they leave your classroom by passing the Naturalization (Citizenship) Test, and also researching and publishing an Op-Ed Essay on if passage should be a high school graduation requirement.

Nearly half of Americans can’t define the Bill of Rights. Three-fourths don’t know why we fought in the Cold War. And 6% don’t even know when Independence Day is. Yikes!

One semester to teach Civics is never enough, right?! But feel confident your students don't leave your classroom without these basic facts.

You choose which Test Series:
60-Question Civics Only Questions
100-Question Civics, Culture, & US History Complete Test

************************************

Greatness is knowing the basic facts of our nation and exercising one’s basic citizen responsibility to engage in the public political discourse on a debated issue.

After taking the Pre-Test, guide students to reflect and develop study plans to learn and prepare for two Quizzes planned throughout the course and the Final Test at the end.

Woven in with their studying, students also develop their position through scaffolded research and writing to produce a publish-ready Op-Ed essay.
