Civics In Action

The NH Bar Foundation and the NH Bar Association are collaborating on the continuation of an adult-focused civics education and awareness initiative, Civics in Action (CIA). CIA started last year with presentations to 58 Rotary Clubs around the state of the program, "Can You Pass the Test?" which asked audiences the same questions posed to those seeking US citizenship. The presentation provokes answers to the questions: Do most citizens know enough about US government to pass this test themselves? What does that say about our level of awareness as citizens in a democracy?

This year, Civics in Action is focusing on presentations to the 18 Kiwanis Clubs in New Hampshire. Under development is "Civics in Action goes viral" an adaptation of the program for students in middle and high school classrooms to roll out in the next school year.
 
Civics in Action - 2012

Can You Pass the Test?
This is a link to self-study tool. The actual civics test is NOT a multiple choice test. The civics test is an oral test. During a naturalization interview, the candidate is asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions. At least 6 out of 10 questions must be answered correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test.
