Mahaffey, George; And Others
This manual is a state-side forestry teaching guide, complete with exercises, for the training of prospective Peace Corps volunteers who will serve in various African countries. The modular format lends itself to both single-country and multicountry forestry training. The first part of the guide contains instructions to the trainer on conducting the program, based on a field test conducted in Arizona in 1982. Included in this section are an overview of the training program, tips on conducting the program, and ideas on presenting the sessions, as well as information on how the sessions fit together. The second part of the guide contains the 60 sessions of the training program. Sessions cover both the technical content of forestry and information on group processes and teaching methods for the volunteers to use in teaching forestry to persons in their host countries. The format of each session includes time allotment, goals, overview, exercise(s), list of materials needed, procedures and activities, and trainer's notes. (KC)
