Two Views of Techniques for Developing Community-Based Education in a Teacher Corps Project (Project Personnel Perspectives).
Witty, Elaine P.; And Others
Two papers by experienced Teacher Corps project personnel describing techniques and approaches used in the development of community-based education are presented in this document. The first paper, by Elaine P. Witty and Yvonne B. Miller, explores methods for identifying educational needs perceived by the community, including group discussions, interviews, surveys, and participation in meetings of community organizations. The paper also comments on integration of community experience and school learning in terms of educational activities, program content, and program goals. The second paper, by Alan Brown, identifies six reasons for citizen participation in education, details five approaches to assessing community educational needs, and itemizes twelve kinds of experiential learning activities that could be included in a community-based program.
