Guia Para El Mejoramiento de la Produccion de Materiales Para la Educacion Formal y No Formal. Guias Metodologicas No. 6. (Guide for the Improvement of Production of Educational Materials for Formal and Non-formal Education. Methodology Guide No. 6). Revised Proceedings from the Regional Workshop on Improvement of the Production of Educational Materials on Teaching Population Education: Primary and Secondary Level (Santiago, Chile, May 27-June 5, 1987).
Various educators from Latin and Central America and the Caribbean met to design and produce materials for teaching family life, human sexuality, community life, and environmental studies. They concluded that the materials should meet community standards; help prepare for future change; develop working models for designing effective teaching materials with scarce resources; and provide testing and evaluation as necessary components. Five units were developed including: (1) "The Demands: Discovering Educational Necessities: Preparing On Site Responses"; (2) "Resources: Criteria for Selection and Development of Materials"; (3) "Proposals: Developing Educational Materials: Analyzing the Planning Process. Organization and Administration of Production and Utilization of Materials"; (4) "Promotion and Marketing of Educational Materials"; and (5) "How Can One Recognize Success? Validation of Materials and Processes." The appendices include materials designed for classroom teaching on population education, adolescent pregnancy, and a methodology guide from the regional workshop. (NL)
