Indian Adult Education and the Voluntary Sector.
Chatham, Ronald L., Ed.; Redbird-Selam, Helen M., Ed.
A three-day institute on Indian adult education and the voluntary sector was sponsored by Church Women United. The speeches dealt with Indian culture and Indian people, effective approaches to teaching, ways teachers can communicate with students of a very different culture, and practical suggestions for Indian adult education programs. The institute is part of the effort of Church Women United to help enable women to become leaders in community services for minority groups. A list of references for further reading is provided. Current trends in the religious sector of voluntarism are discussed in an appendix. (KM)
