Duties of American Citizenship

Today we’re reading Theodore Roosevelt’s speech,  “The Duties of American Citizenship.” In 250 words, answer one of the following questions: 

  1. By Roosevelt’s definition, do you think you are a good citizen? Why, or why not?
  2. Is it important for citizens to voice their opinions and participate in the decision
    making process? Why, or why not? What are some ways you can make your voice
    heard?
  3. What are some of the things in your community that need improving?  According to Roosevelt, what could/should
    you do about it?

Finally, remember that this is an informal writing response. Your response will not be evaluated for grammar or spelling. You’re welcome to use personal pronouns and relate to your personal experience.
