Event description

Description

As the news cycle continues to bring stories about how the U.S. government defines and controls immigration, there is debate about who should be allowed to become a citizen. But what does it mean to be a citizen, and how do we test it? Examine sources from the American past to see how citizenship has been defined and then participant in a public program with sociologist Dr. Faye Allard-Glass. She will lead an interactive workshop that has participants comparing their experiences with citizenship requirements here and in other countries. Can you pass a U.S. naturalization test? Does it measure the qualities and knowledge you think citizens need? Take away this new model for classroom discussion.
