Americanization Guidelines for Public School Directors of Continuing Education and Teachers of the Foreign Born.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Special Continuing Education.
An outline for use in Americanization classes is presented. Emphasis in these classes should be given to: (1) developing an increasing ability in speaking, understanding, reading, and writing English, (2) encouraging the student to become an effective, participating citizen, (3) helping the newcomer prepare for the citizenship examination, and (4) creating a desire for continued learning. Specific topics of study and resources are suggested for these areas: earning a living, consumer education, home and family life, health and safety, citizenship, leisure time, and everyday science and technology. Appendices deal with the student, the teacher, and instructional criteria. (Author/CK)
