This resource guide is designed to provide Peace Corps trainers with common demoninators of knowledge about Peace Corps training philosophy, its goals, and the expectations and training skills required by the Peace Corps. It is intended as a resource to help plan, prepare, and conduct a program that is responsive to a variety of training situations. Section 1 outlines the present Peace Corps training philosophy, its training goals, and the assumptions underlying the two. The outline in section 2 provides the minimum standards the Peace Corps feels are essential for any training programs. Sections 3 and 4 contain descriptions and list the planning responsibilities of these training staff positions: project director, logistics specialist, language coordinator, technical coordinator, cross-cultural coordinator, language instructor, secretary, cook, and driver. Section 5 is an administrative checklist of those tasks to be taken care of before trainees arrive. Section 6 defines major training terms used by the Peace Corps. Section 7 outlines what behavioral objectives are and how to write them, and it provides a sample training session plan. Discussion in section 8 is intended to assist individuals in integrating training. Section 9 focuses on training evaluation--trainee, training program, and daily session. Other contents are a sample training report, project training plan, and sample training session design. (YLB)
