      Overview: Talking with Teachers about Citizenship Rights and Responsibilities

      In some nations, people who are native born--or naturalized as a member of the political and geographic area--are entitled to civic privileges such as voting. With such rights come obligations. As members of a community, we are responsible to the people of that group. In order to enjoy the rights and privileges of membership in society, we must consider our roles within the larger body.

      Ohio's Academic Content Standards establish the following expectations for student performance in the area of Citizenship Rights and Responsibilities:

      • Students use knowledge of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship in order to examine and evaluate civic ideals;
      • Students use knowledge of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship in order to participate in community life and the American democratic system.

      The content in this Teaching Tool is based on Ohio's Academic Content Standards: K-12 Social Studies and includes types of questions asked on the Ohio Graduation Test. While various activities are suggested for working with students, this Teaching Tool is designed to complement a rigorous, research-based curriculum, not to substitute for one.
