Community Education Interaction Exercises.
Warden, John W.
This sourcebook is presented as a reference document for community education trainers and practioners who wish to adopt new approaches for outreach and meaningful involvement in training experiences. It is designed to increase involvement and participation by people in matters that affect them as individuals, as families, and as a community. An exercise index in the first part of the document elucidates many of the sourcebook's themes. The index includes beliefs, community council, community involvement, community resources, components, concept building, coordinator, decisions, delivery systems, evaluation, frameworks, future, getting acquainted, historical perspectives, interagency relationships, logos, planning, problem solving, programming, resource sharing, roles, volunteerism, and work priorities. Then, after the introduction examines possible uses and abuses of the exercises, twenty-five sections are introduced. Sample titles of the first three sections are "What Is a Community Resource?,""Community Education Beliefs: Agree-Disagree," and "Community Education 'Roots'." Almost every section adopts the following format: goals, group size, time, materials, physical arrangement, the facilitative procedure, special notes/instructions, supplemental reading/resources, and trainer notes. At the end of the sourcebook, three appended materials present selected sources of community education information, reaction feedback form, and new exercise additions form. (CSS)
