Instruction in the Cooperative Extension Service.
Sanders, Harry C.
The following six ideas relating to the work of the Cooperative Extension Service are presented: (1) Giving instruction is the Service's major function; (2) Tyler's curriculum and instruction principles are a good guide in developing the instructional function of the organization; (3) Instruction is the principle tool used in influencing behavior of other Extension personnel; (4) Service instruction principles are applicable to the work of all personnel who instruct their clientele; (5) Instruction is conducted to influence overt behavior of clientele; and (6) Service personnel need breadth and depth of training. Chapter I presents the legal base for declaring instruction to be the Service's primary function. Chapter II presents a concept of Extension objectives. Chapter III outlines a procedure for selecting objectives. Chapter IV presents some of the learning experiences used by the Extension. Chapter V presents criteria for organizing learning experiences for effective instruction. Chapter VI is a discussion of necessary materials and services which must be available to clientele for success in instruction. Chapters VII, VIII, and IX are devoted to evaluation, organization, and application of the theoretical concept, respectively. Chapter X presents a brief discussion of the areas of knowledge required for good extension instruction. (Author/CK)
