Community Content-Based Instruction Manual. Information Collection and Exchange Publication No. T0112
Peace Corps
"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 manual is a comprehensive reference on community content-based instruction (CCBI). It provides information on the history and development of CCBI as an education developmental approach related to corresponding approaches to development. It provides field examples including programming insights and suggestions for staff, various training agendas and possible training scenarios, a broad array of CCBI lessons, unit planning, and references to help in the implementation of CCBI. Appended are: (1) 4MAT--A Plan for Preparing an Activity; (2) CCBI for Students and Community Members; (3) Levels of Learning; (4) Questions and Answers about CCBI; and (5) Resource List. [For "Working with CCBI: Volunteer Workbook", see ED521839.]
