This report summarizes the programs and processes used by Sixth and Eighth Cycle Teacher Corps projects at Emporia Kansas State College in the formulation of community-based education programs. Functions of the programs include the following: (a) to broaden the base of educational experiences for children, (b) to involve members of the community in the educational process in order to give credence to the idea that education continues throughout life, (c) to extend and coordinate existing social services to insure that help gets to those who need it but who are uninformed about their options, and (d) to give the broadest possible base to a community's knowledge of what the educational process is by involving community people as teachers and learners. In order to determine community needs, the following methods were employed: (a) application of community dynamics studies of the target communities and their populations, (b) surveys, and (c) development of instruction which was conceived, organized, and implemented by community people. In order to evaluate the program, a survey and discrepancy evaluation were used by the Teacher Corps teams to determine achievement of objectives. (A set of appendixes discussing individual programs, including a sample proposal, are included.) (JS)
