Adult Education Training Handbook for Cultural Awareness.
BLK Group, Inc., Washington, DC.
The handbook provides a framework for planning and conducting a cultural awareness training program for adult education personnel. There is consideration of the problems of: training goals and objectives; design of the instructional program; determination of physical requirements; coordination with administration, personnel, and budget; preparation, coordination, and approval of a training memorandum; and planning, supervision, evaluation, and follow-up of the training effort. There is a detailed outline of a three-day program in cultural awareness; the outline includes short lectures and audiovisual materials that deal with the topics: cultural awareness in America, stereotyping, implications of culture for adult education, culture conflict and curriculum, spaces between people, cross-cultural communication, and getting in touch with feelings. The outline also includes instructional suggestions, lists of materials needed, and recommended readings. Approximately two-thirds of the handbook is devoted to the following appendixes: suggested material for a training notebook, suggested material to be distributed at an adult educators' workshop, an annotated bibliography of both printed and audiovisual materials related to cultural awareness, and a guide to the effective use of audiovisual materials.
