Practically Speaking...Or How to Use the Child Development Guide.
Burns, Suzanne E.
The booklet is designed to help Girl Scout leaders make effective use of the Child Development Guide. The discussion covers: getting started (an explanation of how the guide works, what parts of the guide to use, a brief outline of the various activities to be used, kinds of participation, and samples of individual forms for each girl's projects); the "why" of education for parenthood (a brief outline of the goals and needs the program is designed to meet); fitting it into the total program (how the guide can be integrated with regular girl scout activities); discussion leader skills (some methods for encouraging group discussion); group techniques (including brainstorming, role playing, rapping, round table discussions, debates, and panels); sharing (how to effectively share in groups using nondirective questions); and resources (suggestions for finding resources--people, agencies, and materials).
