Federal Textbook on Citizenship. Aids for Citizenship Teachers for Use in the Public Schools by Teachers of Candidates for Naturalization.
Immigration and Naturalization Service (Dept. of Justice), Washington, DC.
This textbook for teachers of noncitizens preparing for naturalization, a non-sequential manual since problems and purposes of each class of candidates for citizenship are uniquely individual, is a resource compilation of guides, effective teaching techniques, various suggested teaching activities, and supplementary materials including audio-visual media and a selection of student and teacher evaluation. The teacher first analyzes the problems of the particular class and then creatively selects materials for achieving the following behavioral objectives: 1) helping students understand that citizenship involves obeying laws and learning certain facts and skills before they become citizens; 2) instilling in students the meaning and ideas of democracy, helping them to learn"techniques and skills" of citizenship and to become good citizens; and 3) helping the student become increasingly aware of local, state and national affairs.
