The Participatory Process: Producing Photo-Literature.
Cain, B. J.; Comings, John P.
On the assumption that client-centered participatory education is pedagogically superior to other methods designed for adults of low reading ability, this manual outlines classroom-tested techniques for developing "fotonovelas"--printed media in which photos are arranged in the sequence of a dramatic story and the plot is conveyed through dialogue bubbles. After considering various rationales for learner-produced materials, the manual discusses the participatory process, focuses on the relationship between the facilitator and participants, and answers technical questions regarding the production of photo-literature. The final section provides norms for evaluating materials and suggests some options for varying the process. (MAI)
