US Citizenship Test, part II

So recently I put up a post on taking the US citizenship test, but it turns out our new AP Government e-book comes with one that is available on the web.  The nice thing is that it is broken up into two tests: US history and US government.  So my kids are going to get to take it Monday and if you want yours to do the same, here it is.  Now once you have had your kids take the test, have them read this recent Newsweek article that considers how many US citizens CANNOT pass the citizenship test.  Once we do that we are going to discuss democracy and the role of citizens.   As part of that discussion we will look at Hauss' definition found on p. 23 which you can see below.  It is far better than our e-book's one.
