Exploring the Duties & Responsibilities of a Citizen

This Exploring the Duties & Responsibilities of a Citizen activity & project also includes:

What does it mean to be an active, responsible citizen in the United States? What citizen requirements are mandated by law? Learners begin by brainstorming the duties of citizenship, and then read and discuss an excerpt from a speech by President Barack Obama in 2005. They will then design a pamphlet that they imagine will be presented to a student from another country, outlining US citizens' legal duties, civic responsibilities, and volunteering in their communities.
