For the People...Citizenship Education and Naturalization Information. An English as a Second Language Text.
Short, Deborah J.; And Others
A textbook for English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students presents lessons on U.S. citizenship education and naturalization information. The nine lessons cover the following topics: the U.S. system of government; the Bill of Rights; responsibilities and rights of citizens; voting; requirements for naturalization; the application process; the court hearing; national symbols; and review. The lessons allow ESL students to practice English skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Most of the lessons have five parts, including pre-reading, information, reading, testing skills, and review. In addition, the textbook contains study questions, instructor guidelines, a vocabulary index, and answer key. Appendices provide the Immigration and Naturalization Service Application Form N-400, the Biographic Information Form G-325, and a fingerprint chart.
