Today Is “Citizenship Day” As Well As “U.S. Constitution Day” – Here Are Resources For Both

| 1 Comment

Here in the United States, it’s U.S. Constitution Day, when federal legislation requires schools in the United States to offer lessons related to the U.S. Constitution. You might find The Best Sites For Learning About The Constitution Of The United States useful.

It’s also called “Citizenship Day,” and the federal government is also encouraging us to recognize immigrant contributions to American society (see Celebrating Immigrants’ Contributions this Citizenship Day and Constitution Week).

In addition, a number of community organizations are focusing on tomorrow as a day to encourage immigrants who are eligible for U .S. citizenship to apply for it (see National Citizenship Day: Latino Organizations Tout Benefits, Offer Help).

The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship shares a lot of resources that be helpful with this recognition of Citizenship Day. The U.S. Department of Education has made a point of using the term “active citizenship,” and I, too, have written a fair amount about that phrase and its meaning.

  1. Hey Larry
    Have you ever seen the piece “I Am an American Day” by Learned Hand? We read an excerpt with our 9th graders this year and made the connection to many of the events with the Black Lives Matter movement along with the lives of many of my students and their families who are immigrants. Might be something your kids could relate to and appreciate.
