Its objective is to help leaders improve their methods of teaching. Ten articles and how-tos are included. "Learning Through Role Playing" discusses this method, its uses, and some things to avoid. "A Case Example" follows which describes the steps in the role playing process. A "Checklist of Tools for Learning" lists various learning resources and activities and briefly describes each one. An overview of role playing in a large group is entitled "Audience Role Playing.""Some Program Patterns" looks at these types of activities: forum, panel, symposium, and workshop. "Why a Problem Census?" and "How to Get Feedback" describe techniques to increase learning group self-direction. "Choosing the Right Audio Visual Aid" offers suggestions for selecting aids for various settings. Necessary steps for educational visits are described in "Take a Field Trip." The pamphlet closes with a short list of steps in the process of "Inventing New Tools." (YLB)
