The Police, Traffic Tickets, and You. A Guide for New English Learners in Washington State.
Saunders, Janet; Marutani, Mio
The 58-page reproducible text is an introductory guide to the role of police and the procedures surrounding traffic tickets in the state of Washington. It is designed for high-beginning to intermediate adult learners of English as a second language. In 17 brief, simply illustrated units, students are introduced to the police officer's job, types of traffic tickets, and the procedures, options, and penalties involved in responding appropriately to traffic tickets and traffic accidents in Washington. Each unit begins with pertinent vocabulary, followed by exercises including sentence and word completion, multiple-choice, student-to-student questions, pronunciation practice, and role plays. Authentic documents and forms such as a Washington driver's license, notices of infraction, penalty payment agreements, and notices of court hearing are included where appropriate. A section is devoted to notes to teachers concerning classroom use of the text. (Author/MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
