Materials and suggestions are provided for inservice activities to help elementary and secondary school teachers use community resources to enhance classroom experiences.

This section also lists objectives and the rationale for using community resources in the classroom and discussion points that can be made into overhead transparencies. The second section includes five group interaction exercises to establish a cohesive working relationship among the workshop participants. In Section III, the design for a one day (or two half-days) community resource workshop for teachers and community representatives is discussed. The fourth section provides suggestions and procedures for class field trips and goals and guidelines for establishing a parent and community volunteer program. Samples of parental permission slips, a field trip data sheet, and an application form for volunteers are appended. (FG)
