Third World Women. Understanding Their Role in Development. A Training Resource Manual. Core Curriculum Resource Materials.
Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Office of Programming and Training Coordination.
Intended for trainers conducting preservice Peace Corps volunteer training, this manual presents materials to help trainees evolve an understanding of what role women can and do play in the developmental process and of its relationship to Peace Corps programs. An introduction discusses the design and use of the manual. The training goals are then listed. Materials are provided for five sessions: introduction to development, defining women's role in development, identifying roles of men and women in the community and their impact on development, study of a development project and its impact, and summary and application of learning. Each session is organized as follows: time, objectives, overview (summary statement of purpose and rationale and brief description of what will happen in the session), procedures (the training activities suggested to accomplish the goals and the approximate time to complete each activity), materials list, trainer notes (suggestions on how the procedures can be modified, tips on possible outcomes or problems, and suggestions for additional activities), and attachments and handouts (trainer reference or background material, resource articles, case studies, discussion questions, exercises, reading assignments, and inventories).
