A Guide to Training Study Circle Leaders.
Topsfield Foundation, Pomfret, CT. Study Circles Resource Center.
This guide was developed to help train leaders of small-group, democratic, highly participatory discussions known as "study circles." The guide is organized in two parts. The first part presents the basics of study circle leadership, and is written for participants in the training. It includes information on what a study circle is, tips for effective discussion leadership, and dealing with challenges. The second part of the guide is written for instructors of the leader training. It provides the agenda for a basic training program and specific exercises for conveying the knowledge and skills necessary for study circle leadership. Information on expanding and condensing the basic program is also given. Three appendixes address the role of the organizer, the role of the participant, and a comparison of dialogue and debate. (KC)
