Great Decisions. Program Handbook.
Foreign Policy Association, New York, NY.
This publication focuses on how regional and statewide organizers of the Foreign Policy Association's Great Decisions organizations can promote more interest in recruiting discussion group leaders, provide leadership, and encourage new groups. This booklet offers an overview of the Foreign Policy Association's mission, programs, and materials. The standard model used by discussion groups is given, along with the three basic components to follow: developing an informed opinion by reading the text in a briefing book, sharing those opinions with a discussion group, and participating in a democratic process by filling out the opinion ballot. The goals of the program are to promote thoughtful debate and discussion, to express ideas and opinions and learn from others, and to encourage civic participation. Sample forms on how to order materials as well as press releases for community programs that wish promote their groups are included. (JAG)
