Civics In Action Goes Viral
A Statewide Effort to Promote Informed Citizenship and Start a Dialogue about the Constitution
Kicking off on Constitution Day 2014, Civics In Action Goes Viral brings a volunteer lawyer into your classroom for an interactive presentation to introduce students to their role as citizens and increase their knowledge of the US Constitution. Sign up for a visit.

ATTORNEYS: Sign up to introduce students to their role as citizens and increase their knowledge of the US Constitution.

Can You Pass the Test?

Classroom Presentations Available
• A Civics in Action Ambassador (volunteer attorney) visits your classroom
• Students participate in a question-and-answer period about government and civic life
The Civics In Action program began in 2011 with interactive presentations to 58 Rotary Clubs in New Hampshire through 2012 and continues in 2013 with presentations to the 18 Kiwanis Clubs in the state. Posing the question, "Can You Pass the Test?", audiences are asked the same questions asked of those seeking US citizenship.

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?

Civics In Action Goes Viral is an adaptation of this program for students in middle and high school classrooms that begins rolling out this school year.

Practice here for the Test: 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.
