Citizenship: Passing the Test. [Student's Workbook and Teacher's Guide].
Weintraub, Lynne
This document combines a student's workbook and teacher's guide, which were separately published. The beginning-level workbook in United States citizenship instruction is intended for adult immigrants with limited reading skills and/or familiarity with civics concepts. It presents and reinforces the knowledge required to pass the standardized citizenship test. It features large-print text, concepts articulated simply, generous illustration, and a simple format. Reinforcement is provided in vocabulary, reading comprehension, and spelling, and in the multiple-choice test format and machine-scored answer sheets. The accompanying audiocassette tape (not included here) provides follow-along aural reinforcement and authentic dictation practice for the writing portion of the test. The workbook has three sections. The first includes five lessons--a welcome to the United States and four lessons providing significant facts in American history. The second section consists of four lessons on American government. The final section contains two full-length practice tests and a model Personal Information Form. It also gives sample test questions from commercial testing services, sentences for writing practice, and a vocabulary list. The teacher's guide offers suggestions for classroom presentation and discussion. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education) (MSE)
