Phipps, Lloyd J.; And Others
This publication is composed of a series of teaching source units recommended to assist in the improvement of the quality of citizens' participation in local advisory councils or committees. The content is designed to be used by an instructor with a group of citizens who desire to become more knowledgeable about their role and function. The structure of the course of study provides an instructor with information about citizens' advisory councils by presenting ideas on teaching, evaluating, audio-visual aids, and recommended resources. Materials costs as well as the sources are included. The course, as presented in the document, is made up of five units: (1) nature of citizens' advisory councils, (2) formation procedures, (3) internal operations, (4) activities and operations, and (5) special citizens' advisory councils. Most units contain the following: concerns of the unit, student objectives, teaching techniques, audio-visual aids, anticipated problems and concerns, guides to solutions, sample teaching techniques, and evaluation techniques. These are followed by resources, references, and/or sources. There are twenty-two appendixes which are related to the units. (CSS)
