What You’ll / They’ll Do:
 Look over the Table of Contents of English Through Citizenship, Beginning Level I.M., noting how its sections correspond to the Units & Modules of the parallel Student Text. To note what’s available in the E.T.C. Program, peruse its General Description on pages 1 & 2. Beginning-Level General Instructions on pages 3-9 suggest ways to use adapted material to review or present Content (Subject Matter) ranging from well-known “Symbols, Holidays, Historical Figures, & Places” to the U.S Constitution, all levels of Government, U.S. History.
 For Unit 1: The Residency or Citizenship Interview (on I.M. pages 6-19), try out approaches for working with participants’ Names & Addresses; Biographic & Other Information; Family, Employment, & Permanent Residency data. These sections ought to help not only in situations requiring Applications or Interviews but also in getting acquainted and in getting into (language / content) instruction.
 Teaching Notes for Unit 2: Symbols & Holidays (I.M. pages 20-28) address common American Symbols in Module 2A, Thanksgiving & Independence Day In 2B, and More American Holidays in 2C. Follow suggested (and/or your own) Steps (for giving / taking a Pretest); for reviewing, engaging in, and moving forward with Language & Content; (and for checking progress with a Posttest). On I.M. pages 28-35, do the same with Unit 3: Americans, containing Module 2A: Famous Americans, 2B: History of Immigration, and 3C: Historical Figures. Continue with Unit 4: Geography (pages 36-42), which begins to “cover” Geographical Features in 3A, Famous Places in 3B, and States & Cities: the West / the East in 4C / 4D. If it’s relevant, go on to Unit 5 (Module 5A): Citizenship on pages 43-44.
 Finally, “cover the substance” of material central to “Sheltered Social Studies” about the U.S. On I.M. pages 46-48, get tips for presenting Unit 6: The Constitution, Modules 6A & 6B: Overview, Basic Rights & Freedoms. Unit 7, Module 7A: The Federal Government is referenced on I.M. pages 49-50; Unit 8, Module 8A: State Government Branches & Officials, on pages 51-54; Unit 9, Module 9A: Local Government (which discusses County & City Services generically), on pages 55-56. Instructions for a very brief “Overview of U.S. History” appear on I.M. pages 56-57. Important Past Events in California serve as examples for Unit 11, Module 11A: About Your State on pages 59-60; on pages 61-63 (Module 12A: About Your Town or City), Los Angeles serves as a prototype for teachers / learners exploring their own locality.
