New Citizenship Test: Could you pass this?

"What does the Constitution do?" vs. "What is the Constitution?" "What is one reason colonists came to America?" vs. "Why did the Pilgrims come to America?"

Hmmm.....A rich examination of questions that are being reframed (re-phrased) on this new citizenship test. (As a teacher, I love the power of these questions, and enjoyed the challenges presented in this article on the evolution of this exam.)

See the CNN article. Blessings on all who are to take this in the upcoming years. Blessings on all who live comfortably not ever having to take and pass this exam....

(Thanks to Ann Shallbetter for passing this onto me!)
