I’ve recently learned from Susan Wetenkamp-Brandt about a top-notch resource to help English Language Learners prepare for the newly-revised U.S. Citizenship test.

It’s a step-by-step online program to study for the new test. Audio support is provided for all the text, and it include practice questions. It’s available for anyone to use as a “guest” — you just can’t register, log-in and save your work unless you’re a Minnesota resident working with the Minnesota Literacy Council.

Although the content is hosted on the Minnesota Literacy Council’s online learning site, the citizenship course was funded by the St. Paul Community Literacy Consortium (SPCLC) (of which MLC is a member) The primary author is SPCLC’s citizenship teacher, Ron Mazurowski. He wrote the content and Susan put it online and did the media work (audio, video, images).

I’ve added the site to he Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship.
