Training for Empowerment: A Kit of Materials for Popular Literacy Workers Based on an Exchange among Educators from Mozambique, Nicaragua, and Brazil.
Marshall, Judith; And Others
This kit of materials, designed for trainers of adult literacy teachers, attempts to capture the experience of five adult literacy workers from Mozambique on a study tour of Nicaragua and Brazil, and to introduce the user to the concept, methodology, and tools of "popular literacy." The kit both reports an experience and offers a set of resources, but is not intended as a teacher training curriculum. The materials consist of a users' guide, background documents, activities and tools for popular literacy workers, and information on available resources. The background documents include articles on southern-hemisphere educational exchanges as an approach to staff training, an address to adult educators about popular education in Latin America, and education and the struggle for popular power in Mozambique. Nine activities and tools for classroom use are contained in the kit, including games, role-plays, a sociodrama, a text, a comic book, methodological guides, and descriptions of participatory techniques. The resource section contains documentation on popular education methodology and experiences, and a list of groups contacted during the exchange program.
