Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1972 
104 p. 

Volume 4 of a 4-volume bilingual bicultural law-related curriculum examines Navajo community life as it is affected by certain laws. Getting a job, obtaining assistance from welfare and other agencies, and preserving one's individual rights as an employee or as a student are all aspects of daily living with important legal ramifications. This unit explores each of these relationships, as well as important laws that help to shape them. Some of the laws discussed are Social Security, workmen's compensation, unemployment compensations, the food stamp program and other government health and child care programs, as well as child employment regulations in the State of New Mexico. The casebook contains examples of actual instances which are to be utilized in teaching this unit, but it is also suggested that the teacher write the Employment Security Commission and other Federal and State agencies to get forms and applications to be used in the classroom as teaching aids. Video tapes on food stamps and on the fair hearing process are available from the Ramah Bilingual Project (New Mexico), and should also be used in conjunction with this unit. (AH)
