Vocational Education Manual. Peace Corps/Tunisia. A Handbook for Volunteers. Appropriate Technologies for Development. Reprint R-46.
This manual was developed to train Peace Corps volunteers to teach vocational education in Tunisia, although it also has applications to the training of volunteers in other countries. The book is organized into four sections. The first section is an introduction that provides background information on the school system and the Peace Corps vocational education program in Tunisia. The second section, one of importance to volunteers working in various countries, concerns basic pedagogical skills. This section explains the fundamental principles of teaching a vocational subject, including lesson planning, teaching methods, and evaluation. In the third section, detailed Tunisia-specific information is given on school procedures, curriculum, discipline, grading, and forms. The final section is an appendix that covers additional information that a Tunisian vocational education volunteer would find useful. The manual is not self-teaching and is meant to be used in a classroom situation. (KC)
