Planning and Assessment in Community Education.
Burbach, Harold J., Ed.; Decker, Larry E., Ed.
Identifying the genuine needs of a community and developing a sound program to respond to those needs represent the primary mission of the community educator. The success of program planning efforts will depend largely on how solid the analysis of the community is. This collection of papers deals with the question of how community analysis is done. It provides both theoretical background and practical suggestions and examples of what kind of information is useful and how to get it. Contributions include "A Growing Imperative" by Harold J. Burbach and Larry E. Decker, "Educational Planning" by Ken M. Young, "A Nine-Phase Approach to Community Education Development" by Michael H. Kaplan, "Community Involvement: A Model for Systematic Planning" by Larry Winecoff and Conrad Powell,"Planning as Process" by John W. Warden, "Community-Based Research" by Harold J. Burbach, "Community Observation" by Richard M. Brandt, "Community Power Structure" by Everett B. Howerton, Jr., and "Program Evaluation" by Bruce M. Gansneder. (Author/JM)
