The City University of New York Resource Guide: Becoming a Citizen.
Garretson, Kate, Ed.
The guide outlines a 50-hour curriculum for preparing immigrants to apply for and gain United States citizenship. It begins with an algorithm illustrating the process of gaining citizenship and a list names and addresses of City University of New York campus citizenship liaisons. Ten instructional modules follow, each providing information for both the teacher and the student. Module topics include: eligibility assessment; an overview of the naturalization process; the Immigration and Naturalization Service application forms and application process; U.S. history and government (discovery and settlement, Revolutionary War and independence, national government and the Constitution, state and local government, U.S. history since 1800); citizen rights and responsibilities; and test (interview) preparation. In the last module, the 100 questions are presented in both English and Spanish. A list of additional resources is appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
