Forestry Training Manual. Inter-America Region, U.S. Peace Corps.
Bordman, Joan; And Others
This manual is used in a program designed to provide new Peace Corps volunteers (who have lived in-country for 10 weeks and have had cultural, language, and some forestry technical training) with 5 weeks of intensive training in practical forest technology areas and forest extension work. The manual includes an overview of the program, a list of program goals, information on starting the program (such as selecting training and tree planting sites and planning field trips), lists of references and materials needed, tips on conducting the program, and the complete 64 training sessions. An overview, recommended time-frames, goals, instructional strategies, and exercises are provided for each session. In addition to sessions focusing on such areas as nurseries, tree planting, conducting research on forestry issues, and presenting lessons, language sessions (emphasizing Spanish vocabulary, grammatical structure, and sentence construction) are given regularly to help trainees retain and increase their language skill level. Although each session builds toward or from the one(s) preceding and following it, individual sessions can be used independently with minor modification. (JN)
