|Lesson Title||Importance of citizens working in their communities|
|Unit Title||Global Citizenship|
|Unit Compelling Question||Why should I be a global citizen?|
To become a citizen in the United States a person must go through the process called naturalization. This process requires individuals be at least 18 years old. They must have lived in their current state for at least three months. They must have a good moral character, and pass a two-part naturalization test. Citizens are asked to swear to defend the United States Constitution.

2018.008.005 In the 1860s, a handful of Norwegian immigrants to Iowa who were followers of the State Church in Norway, or the Norwegian Synod, tried to develop a system of parochial schools where they could teach all of the subjects, including religion and the Norwegian language, as a way of maintaining Norwegian identity. The idea, however, was not popular with the people in the Norwegian Synod's church congregations because they preferred to send their children to the "common schools" or public schools to learn English and American ways. This school building, the Rovang School, was one of three Norwegian parochial schools built to provide part-time religious education in the Norwegian language. The school was built in 1880 and served as a parochial school in rural Decorah for about four decades.
|Lesson Supporting Question||Why do people work?|
Students will be recalling what we’ve already learned in the previous lesson about a citizen and using that information to help them figure out why it is important that people in their community work. Then, students will explore different job sites and think of occupations that relate to the job sites.
