Department of Justice, Washington, DC.; Immigration and Naturalization Service, Washington, DC. Office of Outreach.; Center for Applied Linguistics, Washington, DC.
A textbook on United States government is written for immigrants studying for American citizenship. It is designed in a way that encourages students to practice all of their English skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) in each lesson. Most lessons have five parts: pre-reading, information, reading, testing skills, and review. The 25 chapters cover the following subjects: introduction to government; the Constitution; executive branch; election process; legislative branch; judicial branch; checks and balances; state government; and local government. Study questions, notes to instructors, a vocabulary index, and an answer key are appended. (LB) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
