Citizens and Community Education. Role Guide Series #1.
Hester, Helen J., Comp.; Rondeau, Don J., Comp.
This guide is the first in a series of eleven generated in 1978 as the result of workshops that focused on peer training, a different approach to teaching. By sharing summaries of group discussions, the authors of this booklet hope to encourage citizens to work cooperatively within their communities to solve problems. The booklet also is intended as a tool to present this role group's perspective to other role groups and to serve as a discussion guide for interaction and training. Some of the topics explored include benefits derived from citizen participation, problems encountered by community education programs, the role of citizens on councils, and the training of citizens. Discussed in depth are suggestions for developing a working relationship between citizens and the following role groups: school board members, superintendents, principals, community education coordinators, community college personnel, government agency representatives, parks and recreation personnel, and extension agents.
