Immigration to North America: Rights & Responsibilities of Citizenship

by Jack Nagle

Citizenship is the common thread that connects all Americans. The United States is a nation that is bound not by race or religion, but by shared values such as freedom, liberty, and equality. Throughout its history, the US has taken in immigrants from all over the world. Their contributions have helped to shape and define the United States today. This book provides an easy-to-read overview of the rights and responsibilities that all US citizens should exercise and respect. It provides information on the citizenship test that immigrants must pass, as well as on the US government and how it works. The book provides an introduction for anyone wanting to learn more about what it means to be a citizen of the United States of America. Titles in this series contain color photos throughout, maps, graphs and illustrations, and back matter including: biographical information of famous people, a detailed index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series.
