Citizenship Test 100 Questions: Tell Me About…

December 2019
Audience
Adults
Topic
Citizenship

Purpose: If learners memorize the 100 questions by rote, they can become flustered if the interviewer varies the wording of the questions. This activity is a review technique for learners who have taken a citizenship class. Summarizing the information about the topics that are covered in the questions helps the learners to cement their knowledge of the background information and to build confidence.

Procedure:

  1. Select a subject or a person from the lists below.
  2. Ask the learner/s to tell you as much as they can about the topic. Prompt as needed.
