Product Description
This is the THIRD of six (once weekly) U. S. Citizenship classes for adult learners I teach as a volunteer for a local non-profit (the Latina Women's League). Each lesson includes power point slides with two to three active links to short high quality publicly licensed videos (some from the U.S. Citizenship Immigration Service, others from news services, and available without copyright issues through youtube).

I pair this instruction with a short book "Study Guide for the U.S. Citizenship Test in English" by Mike Swedenberg (current version is updated January 2018). I have no economic interest in the book, but find it an excellent tool for my students, at a low cost (online I got my 15 copies spring 2018, from Amazon for $7 to $8 dollars each). This 'course' also includes a vocabulary sheet for the lengthy (twenty page) N-400 application. The process is VERY EXPENSIVE ($725 as of 2018) so it is in our best interest to have the students confidently well-prepared to succeed.

This lesson covers the first 'national constitution' (the Articles of Confederation, 1781-1789), the many weaknesses Shays Rebellion pointed out, and other weaknesses of the Articles which lead to them being replaced within ten years by our current Constitution.

It covers the subsequent Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, the Constitution (and amendments), the Bill of Rights (with a link to a brief video on the Bill of Rights), and details answers to 19 of the 100 possible citizenship questions asked in the Citizenship interview process.

I am a retired (now part-time) adjunct Professor of political science at our local two year college (rated number one in the nation by PEW Corporation for 2014-2016) with more than twenty years of teaching experience. I have been repeatedly recognized for excellence in teaching at both the two year and university level during my career.

My citizenship students current range in age from 21 to 81, and represent many Latin and Southern American countries (Columbia, Peru, Venezuela, etc.), European countries, African-countries, Great Britain, and Asian nations.

I hope these materials may be of help to you with your students. Any profits from these materials will be used to help support the continuing costs of books, supplies, etc. in support of our Citizenship class program. Thank you in advance for you feedback, and constructive suggestions.
