Mackenzie, Liz, Comp.
This booklet contains the materials required to conduct a 2-day popular education workshop to teach community educators ways of overcoming the racial, educational and cultural, and language and literacy barriers to active participation in adult education that are commonly faced by Black adults in South Africa. Presented first is background information regarding the original 2-day workshop, which was attended by 30 South African adult and popular educators and which served as the basis for the booklet. The next section contains the various materials required for the first day of the workshop, including the following: agenda; game to encourage participants to introduce themselves and share their reasons for attending the workshop; workshop introduction; and icebreaker activity to channel participants into one of the workshop's three theme groups. The materials included for the second day of the workshop are designed to help participants do the following: develop checklists for designing and facilitating discussions of the three workshop themes; introduce principles of popular education; apply the workshop materials to their roles as educators; demonstrate concrete applications of the workshop materials; reflect on links between education in the democratic movement in South Africa and elsewhere; and evaluate the workshop.
