Federal Textbook on Citizenship. English and State Government. Home Study Course. Section 3 for the Student. Revised 1973.
Immigration and Naturalization Service (Dept. of Justice), Washington, DC.
This federal home study textbook for naturalization candidates on the subject of state government serves as a vehicle for English language practice for the person with little or no skill in reading and should be used in conjunction with "English and State Government for the Helper (Section 3)." Each chapter contains factual information and exercises reinforcing the student's comprehension of main ideas. The twenty chapters introduce the function and structure of state governments, including the legislative, executive and judicial branches. Also described are the state government's protective and educative functions. The plan and function of city and county governments are presented as well as the means by which all governments are supported--tax dollars. A description of interaction among governments and between government and citizens is concluded by a summation of the principles of American government. A key to the mail-in exercises and a vocabulary list supplement the lessons. (JH)
