Brown, Lance Jay; Whiteman, Dorothy E.
The workbook which was the subject of this evaluation was prepared to aid disenfranchised community groups participate in the nonprofessional planning and decisionmaking process. It was written at a time when extensive technical assistance to local groups concerned with community planning and housing situations was envisioned. The intent behind this evaluation was to determine the extent to which the workbook methods and materials were applied, the areas in which they were most useful; and to identify necessary revisions and directions requiring further research. The report summarizes in outline form the exact nature of the replies and presents the critical commentary offered by respondents. Appendixes provide more extensive information from questionnaire responses and summarize the workbook. (Author/DN)
