This monograph, one of four in a series, contains material on a particular aspect of literacy training. Developed from reports, papers, and case studies from the Regional Literacy Workshop (November 29-December 20, 1979) held in Udaipur, India, the monographs are suggested for use in training programs for literacy personnel as background materials, an exercise in materials production, or a course of lectures. This first monograph is divided into two parts. The first part is a brief report of the proceedings of the workshop on the development of curricular, motivational, instructional, and followup materials, including those for the media. Objectives of the workshop are outlined, workshop activities are summarized, and elements considered essential for developing curricula are listed. Part B deals with some of the techniques and methodologies of curriculum construction employed by several countries in the region and attempted elsewhere. This is followed by the discovery procedures engaged in during the Udaipur exercise during which workshop participants went to rural areas and discovered for themselves the procedures for constructing curricula and sample materials. Strategies are suggested for translating the sample curricula into different source materials--motivational, instructional, and followup. A final section covers curriculum evaluation and revision.
