Developmental Book Activities and Needs in the Republic of Vietnam.
Barnett, Stanley A.; And Others
A three week survey was conducted to: (1) investigate the state of developmental book activity in Vietnam, (2) determine the priority of Vietnam's book needs, (3) develop program recommendations to meet the needs and (4) formulate regional recommendations. Although books published in Vietnam increased from 667 in 1961 to 1,566 in 1965, normal growth and expansion of the developmental book field must await the cessation of hostilities and the emergence of more modern schools. Recommendations on materials and methods needed are: (1) textbook guides for elementary school teachers, (2) seminars and workshops demonstrating the role of textbooks, (3) textbooks for elementary and secondary students, (4) mature easy-to-read books for non-school youth, (5) translations of U.S. pedagogical materials and (6) production of audio-visual materials. Recommendations concerning library and library book development are: (1) unification of the National Library and the General Library, (2) establishment and enforcement of school library standards, (3) development of pilot demonstration programs, (4) establishment of study study centers and (5) formulation of an effective library association.
