Citizenship 101

Ok. In class, we've been talking about the concept of citizenship and different types of citizens in the United States. This instance happened today and it was strange because I could see and hear the conversation before it was done...

Mr. H: If you are born in the U. S. or one of its territories, you are a native-born citizen.

7th Grade Student: Mr. H, is Alabama in...

Mr. H sensing the impending question: Wait! Think about what you're about to ask. Make sure that it makes sense.

7th Grade Student: Is Alabama in the United States?

Mr. H: Really?

Another brilliant statement by the future leaders of the world:

7th Grade Student: Mr. H, where did the Indians come from?

Another 7th Grade Student: Indiana, duh.
