American Government. A High School Bilingual Supplement for Laotian Students.
A course handbook for limited English-speaking, native Laotian-speaking immigrant high school students in a course on United States government is intended to simplify concepts, build learning confidence, and supplement classroom texts. It contains lessons on the beginnings of the United States government, revolution and independence, the development and content of the Constitution, the legislative process, State government (legislature, election of officers, State services, State finance, and upper and lower court systems), citizens' rights, local and city government, and four units on the process of obtaining American citizenship. The lessons consist of a vocabulary preview; the content; a Laotian translation; and exercises that review the content, use the vocabulary, and draw conclusions from the content. Charts, graphs, and other illustrations are included; review lessons are interspersed with the content lessons. A glossary giving both English and Laotian definitions for English words and a short bibliography are appended. (MSE)
