Self Study Course for Adult 4-H Leaders. A Pilot Study by Second Year 4-H Leaders in Sibley County, Minnesota, 1971.
Schwartz, George; Worden, Phyllis
An evaluation was made of a programmed course "A Self Study Course for Adult 4-H Leaders" from Colorado State University, to determine if leaders would complete a self-study program in lieu of county training meetings. Seventeen leaders completed evaluation forms and the lessons. The study results are presented in 10 chapters: Why 4-H?; Planning the 4-H Program; The 4-H Club Meeting; Learning Experiences; 4-H Teaching Methods; How to Grow Up; Motivations of Youth; Parent Cooperation; 4-H in the Community; and Resources to Help You. The responses of the leaders to specific questions are tabulated. Recommendations of the leaders were: (1) Add local county situations ideas and information; (2) Add more specific solutions to various problems that leaders encounter; (3) Change the programmed format; and (4) Use self-study course in present form. Two appendixes present the Evaluation Sheet and Lesson enclosures. (DB)
