Understanding Community Development. A Guide for Native American Community Leaders and Professionals. Trainer's Manual. A Training Packet Developed for and in Cooperation with Native American Tribal Leaders.
Schnabel, Rudolph K.; Parmee, Edward A.
The trainer's manual, to be used with the participant's manual for a workshop to train Native American community development workers to better understand and carry out their job, sets forth the basic principles and practices of community-centered work and provides guidelines to help leaders/professionals help their communities solve problems they identify. Materials are written in relatively concise and simple terms so that those with English as a second language can more easily understand them. The manual contains general guidelines for the trainer and components on terms fundamental to community development work, the place of people in community development work, the role and problems of the community worker, examples of successful community development programs, community development planning, and community development action. Trainer guidelines cover use of resource persons and facilitators, time schedules, facilities, and equipment (including a checklist), meeting personnel and fellowship needs, supplementary materials or audio-visual aids, and final evaluation and follow-up. Each component includes learning goals, a summary of material found in the participant's manual, suggestions for leading sessions, detailed procedures for the exercises, and answers for some exercises. Components contain notes on strong and weak points of five specific case studies. Pre-course and post-course questionnaires are included. (MH)
