"Community Content-Based Instruction" grew out of several development initiatives and field needs. It began to take shape in a Gender and Public Health Education for Teachers Workshop and an In-Service Education Workshop for Volunteers and their counterparts, in the spring of 1996 in Eritrea. Since that time, the concept has been further developed and refined through efforts in the field and at headquarters. This workbook is a complement to the training an individual receives as part of his pre-service training (PST) and in-service training (IST). The workbook is full of activities that will bring an individual into contact with his new community. Many activities involve observing people and recording what an individual sees. This workbook is organized around a typical lesson plan design. Each section of the workbook presents an individual with some fundamental information and the opportunity to practice what he has just learned. The goal is for an individual to be able to apply what he learns to his activities in the classroom and in the community. [For the "Community Content-Base Instruction Manual", see ED521840.]
