Today, Monday February 17, is President’s Day. Did you know that it was moved from February 22 (George Washington’s birthday) to the 3rd Monday of February as part of an effort to make more 3-day weekends for workers? Hmmm. Since I’m working today, that didn’t help me!
But we can honor our Presidents (and our government) today anyway. How many of you could pass the citizenship test, which asks basic questions about our government and history? Prospective citizens are asked 10 questions from a pool of 100 questions, and they must get six correct. Try the sample multiple choice self-test! (The real test is not multiple choice, however.)
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services web site offers study materials for the English, Reading, Writing, and Civics tests, including the 29-page Learn about the United States: Quick civics lessons for the naturalization test.
