Some Aspects of Community Adult Education in the Northwest Territories of Canada, 1967-1974.
Lidster, Echo L. R.
Published as a record of the early development of some aspects of community adult education in the Northwest Territories of Canada, 1967-1974, the book begins with a statement of the philosophy of adult education and a listing of objectives of community adult education. The first three philosophical bases listed are: start with people where they are (in this case living in remote settlements scattered over a circumpolar area comprising 1/3 of Canada's land mass); people are anxious to learn about events happening around them and exploding in their midst; and where feasible programs should be taken to the people rather than plucking people out of settlements to take them to the programs. The first three program objectives cited are: to develop programs which will meet the needs as expressed by the citizens of the community to be served; to encourage research and development; and to give the community responsibility for the program. A background section and an adult education section are provided for each of the programs in four regions: Baffin Region (7 programs), Fort Smith Region (12 programs), Inuvik Region (8 programs), and Keewatin Region (4 programs). A special topics section (24 items) and 15 appendices conclude the document. (BRR)
