Federal Textbook on Citizenship. Our Constitution and Government: Lessons on the Constitution and Government of the United States for Use in the Public Schools by Candidates for Citizenship. Revised Edition.
Designed especially for the use of the foreign-born who are preparing themselves for their naturalization examinations as applicants for United States citizenship, this textbook contains thirty lessons which tell about the government in the United States and about the kind of Constitution upon which it is founded. The text of each of the thirty lessons is introduced and summarized. Activities such as discussion questions, projects, field trips, and completion and multiple choice questions are suggested for each lesson. Black and white figures and illustrations are amply used to help present concepts. Long lists of words and their definitions conclude each lesson. The content sequence begins by discussion groups and group membership. The history of the government and Constitution is related, followed by detailed examination of the processes and functions of local, state, and federal governments. A glossary and reproductions of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are provided. A related document is ED 059 111. (Author/KSM)
