"Is American citizenship all about personal freedom and the rights of the individual? Or should the concept of the "good citizen" take precedence, underscoring the duties and contributions an individual owes to society? Where does immigration fit in? This program helps students sift through various meanings of American citizenship and the historical forces that have shaped it. With energetic visuals, expert interviews, and examples from past political struggles, the video explores citizen rights as given in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights; iterations of federal immigration law through the years; the history of Ellis Island as a conduit into citizenship; civic responsibilities and "active citizenship"; civil liberties and their importance; equal protection under the law; and more. A viewable/printable instructor's guide is available online."--Container
