Gaye, Pape Amadou (1980). Practical Course in Wolof: An Audio-Aural Approach. This text is aimed at those interested in learning the Wolof language, the most widely used language in Senegal, spoken by more than 80% of the Senegalese and Gambian people. This manual can be best used under the following conditions: (1) the instructor is Wolof born or speaks the language fluently, (2) the course is taught in intensive or semi-intensive sessions (a minimum of 3 hours per day), (3) the audio-aural method of teaching is used (with exclusive use of Wolof in the classroom), and (4) the class is small with a maximum of seven students. This manual can also be used by those who would like to learn Wolof individually or with the help of an informant or tutor. The chapters are organized in "themes" which allows students who already have some knowledge of the language to skip chapters and go directly to the lessons they are interested in. A typical chapter includes an introduction of new material, presentation of dialogue, grammar, cultural information, written exercises, and vocabulary words. A Wolof-English glossary of 2,500 words is appended.   [More]  Descriptors: African Languages, Audiolingual Methods, Autoinstructional Aids, Cultural Education

Reynolds, Joan (2002). Thich Nhat Hanh As Adult Educator. Thich Nhat Hanh, a 76-year-old Buddhist monk of the Vietnamese meditation school, exemplifies mindfulness in his daily life and teaches these principles around the world. Preferring to be called "Thay" which means teacher, he has written over 75 books on such subjects as mindfulness in daily living and its relation to social action. His teachings can be identified with "engaged Buddhism," which emphasizes the importance of community, yet points out that one need not look outside oneself for love because loving oneself with proper care and understanding is loving the world. Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment throughout the day. It can be practiced in the kitchen, bathroom, one's room, and on the walking path. Thay believes America's disregard for daily living has contributed to violence in the world and explains that its foreign policy and Americans' personal relationships disallow the deep listening needed to understand the suffering and issues of people in other nations. Adult educators such as Freire and Boal wish to transform fear and oppression into empowerment and understanding. Adult educators also agree with Thay that learning is alive and well within each person, each community, each culture; equality is in one's mind; dialogue is necessary; adult educators must be aware of the culture, customs, and very being of their students; and balance is valued. (Contains 19 references.)   [More]  Descriptors: Adult Education, Adult Educators, Buddhism, Cross Cultural Studies

Beinstein, Judith; And Others (1962). Conversational Telugu. The purpose of this text is to develop elementary conversational skills in Telugu. The language materials consist of four types of language learning activities. The first, and most predominant, is the unit microwave cycle. These cycles divide the learning process into two basic phases, the first of which involves mimicry, memorization, and manipulation. The second phase involves the conversational application of the first phase. The second type of learning activity consists of various kinds of drill exercises: substitution, repetition, transformation, conversation and question-and-answer drills. The third type of learning activity is analysis of the language. Simplified explanations are given of structural items in previous lessons. The fourth type of learning activity involves task-oriented situations, model village and slide exercises, and role plays, to help the student gradually become accustomed to combinations of sounds and phrases. The text is divided into five sections, each consisting of cycles, drills and grammar notes that concentrate on a limited number of sentence patterns and structural items. Suggested supplements follow each section. Effective use of the materials presupposes the use of language props to teach vocabulary. In addition, the units are designed to be used as a basis for conversation between student and instructor and between students.   [More]  Descriptors: Adult Education, Communicative Competence (Languages), Conversational Language Courses, Dravidian Languages

McKay, Bidge (1971). Training for Nonviolent Action for High School Students: A Handbook. The handbook for secondary students advocates nonviolent action, not passivity nor retaliation toward injustices. Emphasis is upon helping students to understand nonviolent action; to be familiar with training information on courses, time requirements, problems, costs, and procedures; and to deal with direct objectives toward peaceful social action. To stimulate thinking, the major portion of the handbook is in the form of questions of interest to students and teachers, and responses which were written by people previously involved in direct non-violent action. Resources and a bibliography for those interested in training for non-violent action are included. An appendix contains a model for fifteen hour weekend course, a list to check before acting, ideas for integrating social change into the curriculum, a copy of an official Selective Service memorandum, a bibliography of films, and ideas on street theater.   [More]  Descriptors: Activism, Civil Disobedience, Conflict Resolution, Dissent
