Citizenship Resources for Constitution and Citizenship Day (September 17)



uscitizenpod: The U.S. Constitution

A basic introduction to the Constitution for ESL/Citizenship students. This video is based upon a ppt that I made in 2005 and modified in 2008. 



ListenAndReadAlong is an AWESOME resource that produces videos that highlights words as they are heard from VOA news reports and features.

USCIS: 

USScourts: U.S. Courts: Constitution Day and Citizenship Day Live Coverage (video)
Live coverage of Constitution Day and Citizenship Day from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, and Ellis Island in New York, NY, begins at 10:45 a.m. ET on 9/16. Watch new American citizens take the oath of allegiance at naturalization ceremonies.  Hint: This video is 1 hour 40 minutes.  It is very inspirational, but a bit too long for class.  Check out the US Courts' 40 seconds preview here.
