New-York Historical Society – The Citizenship Project
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invited libraries and museums to participate in a webinar on Tuesday, Aug. 21 from 2 to 3 p.m. (Eastern). The New-York Historical Society (N-YHS) provided an overview of “The Citizenship Project.” The program leverages N-YHS museum and library collections and inquiry-driven instruction to teach the 100 questions from the USCIS Civics Test in depth, building a stronger understanding of American history and government for future U.S. applicants.
The presenters provided an overview of the project, discussed their partnerships with other organizations, and shared lessons from the first year. We concluded with a question-and-answer session.
The webinar was presented as part of the federal partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services to provide citizenship and immigration information to library and museum professionals.
