Teach Students to Pronounce Numbers



Here is another activity from the site, hosted by graphic artist, teacher and education blogger Mike Kloran.  Mr. Kloran created the site to: 1) improve his teaching techniques and materials to offer his students a better learning experience; and 2) to give something back to and connect with a larger community of teachers. (His words)

Washington State Citizenship Services for Immigrants and Refugees

The Washington New Americans Program (WNA) connects immigrants and refugees in Washington State to the information and legal services needed to successfully naturalize and exercise their civic voice. In the interest of changing a flawed system, we also advocate to reduce the structural barriers that keep many from achieving U.S. citizenship.

WNA is a partnership between the State of Washington and OneAmerica, a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to building power in immigrant and refugee communities. With the support of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and community organizations across Washington, we provide naturalization information and assistance with N-400 and I-912 forms. We organize approximately a dozen free citizenship application workshops around Washington State every year, and our affiliate organizations offer assistance in their offices year-round, by appointment.
