Community Renewal. Experiences from the Field. An Adult Educator's Resource Kit. 2nd Edition.
Le Baron, Beth; And Others
This kit suggests ideas and resources for adult educators and other community workers to use in assisting individuals, groups, and communities to respond effectively to a changing economy. Introductory materials provide the purpose, a note on content arrangement, and suggestions for program methods and program planning. The main portion of the kit is divided into 10 sections, each devoted to one program theme. Each program theme unit contains a brief introduction to the theme or subject; "Program Possibilities" taken, for the most part, from program calendars of adult education institutions (topics and a suggested type of program for each); "Experience Suggests," which draws out the main features and lessons from the field in the program area; and "Resources," which lists some of the programming aids available (organizations and publications). The 10 themes are finances and the law, marketable skills, stress, women, advocacy, economic self-reliance, volunteer programs, entertainment/recreation, theater and the arts, and understanding economics. Two other sections concern obtaining, digesting, and recycling economic and social information for community education purposes and simple evaluation. (YLB)
