Katimavik Participant's Manual, Book VII, Socio-Cultural Activities = Katimavik manuel du participant, cahier VII, activites socio-culturelles.
OPCAN, Montreal (Quebec).
The bilingual student manual, devoted to the socio-cultural learning activity portion of Katimavik (a nine-month volunteer community service and experiential learning program for 17 to 21 year old Canadians), contains sections on learning program objectives and trimester guidelines, optional activities, resume recordkeeping, general topic information, and social issues. The major focus of the unit is on developing a basic awareness of social and cultural activities as an expression of community and cultural uniqueness, which includes a geographic, economic, historical, and political understanding of a community, as well as a direct involvement in arts, crafts, and communications. A section on values clarification offers a format for looking at the issues of teenage pregnancy and birth control, responsibility in marriage, government's role in providing family assistance, community property in marriage, raising children (health, education, financial support), divorce, and child custody. An activities section provides instructions for square and reel dancing, making various ethnic breads, home papermaking, communicating in sign language, writing news stories, and interviewing people. An annotated bibliography cites reference materials on the subjects of dance, drawing, musical instruments and lessons, theatre, sculpture, leather and textile crafts, and canoe-making. (NEC)
