Leadership Packet: A Helpful Handbook for the American Issues Forum, A National Bicentennial Program.
Denver Univ., CO. American Issues Forum Regional Program.
The American Issues Forum (AIF) is the national program for the Bicentennial developed by the National Endowment for the Humanities and cosponsored by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration. The purpose of the Leadership Packet is to provide those who are interested in developing AIF Programs with suggestions about how to plan and with information about supporting materials, services, and activities. The key to the American Issues Forum is a Calendar of nine monthly topics--issues that have been fundamental to American society throughout history. The Calendar--part 2, following an introduction--is designed to stimulate serious and coordinated exploration of American's abiding accomplishments and problems during the Bicentennial celebration, providing a framework for a variety of programs. Part 3 suggests kinds of programs which could be planned for communities and organizations. General how-to-do-it suggestions for programs development, resources, promotion, and coordination are contained in part 4. Extensive bibliographies for adults and students are contained in part 5. A directory of AIF-related materials, media efforts, and supporting organizations comprise part 6. Part 7 lists various Bicentennial exhibits and displays. (Author/JR)
