About this course:

People who wish to naturalize as U.S. citizens have to pass a citizenship test, which includes civics questions about American government. Imagine having to take a government civics test every year in order to remain a U.S. citizen. You would have to correctly answer 12 questions from a list of 128 to maintain your citizenship status. This course ensures that outcome as we review the founding principles of our democracy, our system of government, and our rights and responsibilities. Topics include the functions and responsibilities of the co-equal branches of government, the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights, your congressional representatives; and clarifying everything you need to know about the Electoral College, gerrymandering, and more.
