Milburn, Thomas (1970). Problems of Integrating Academic Disciplines in the Study of War, Violence, and Social Change. The problems mankind faces are of such overwhelming importance that it is easy to see why we are interested in integrating the academic disciplines to study war, violence, and social change. Could not the behavioral sciences, properly mobilized, enable us to reduce the probabilities of war and violence, and make social change more tolerable? Toward these ends, the integration of academic disciplines, and the cooperation of these disciplines with practitioners (educators) should prove worthwhile. There are several obstacles to interdisciplinary work: 1) the anxiety-provoking nature of this area of research, which causes people to withdraw to safe problems in their own disciplines; 2) the tendency to regard only the things in one's own discipline as problematic, and those things outside as givens; 3) the defensiveness and jealousy that often exists between disciplines; and, 4) each discipline having its own distinct methods. One way to overcome these obstacles is to be aware of the conceptual convergences that exist across disciplines. These convergences set the stage for cooperation. There are new methods and concepts that make cooperation easier, e.g., the man-computer simulation to study conflict. It is not obvious how such projects can best be organized, and we need to collect critical incidents concerning successful attempts at cooperation.   [More]  Descriptors: Aggression, Antisocial Behavior, Behavioral Sciences, Conflict

Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Office of Programming and Training Coordination. (1981). A Training Manual in Conducting a Workshop in the Design, Construction, Operation, Maintenance and Repair of Hydrams. This manual presents a comprehensive training design, suggested procedures, and materials for conducting a workshop in the design, construction, operation, maintenance, and repair of hydrams, and in the planning and implementation of hydram projects. Hydrams (hydraulic rams, hydraulic ram pumps, automatic hydraulic ram pumps, rams) are devices that use the force of water falling through a drive pipe to pump water to a height greater than its source, making use of hydraulic principles and requiring no fuel. The manual includes 20 sessions for the design and construction of modified and fabricated pipefitting and cement rams, and complete instructions for a clear PVC demonstration ram. Each session includes learning objectives, recommended time, suggested procedures, the specific tools, materials, and resources required, notes for trainers (which clarify procedures, provide background information, or suggest options), and activities (designed for 15-20 participants with two trainers) which incorporate such learning techniques as demonstrations, problem-solving, skill practice and guided construction, and large and small group discussions. Guidelines for users (including lists of training objectives, pre-workshop tasks, and tools, equipment, and materials needed) are provided in an introductory section. The entire workshop requires ten 8-hour working days.   [More]  Descriptors: Construction (Process), Developing Nations, Postsecondary Education, Skill Development

Hubbard, Robert L.; Ennis-Applegate, Mari (1988). The Design & Management of Community Projects–A Team Approach. This manual contains materials for a 2-week workshop to train extension staff and community leaders working at the village level in the Solomon Islands. The aim of the course is to improve participants' skills so they are better able to help communities and community groups design and manage community projects. An introduction addresses the team approach in which participants are divided into small teams composed of a mix of government extension officers, nongovernmental field workers, and community leaders who participate in a variety of practical learning experiences; other methods include small action plays, handouts, worksheets, and flip charts. Intended participants, location, and training schedule are also discussed. The manual is divided into six parts. Part 1 introduces the workshop. Parts 2-5, the heart of the training course, set out the steps in developing a community project, namely: assessing needs, planning a project, implementing the plan, and evaluating the project. Part 6 covers participant evaluation of the workshop. Each part is organized by sections: title and time required, aims to be achieved by participants, preparations to be completed by trainers before the start of the section, materials needed, trainer overview summarizing content, and trainer procedures and participant activities. The manual's 29 handouts, 17 flip charts, and 5 work sheets are provided where appropriate throughout the document. Contains 29 references.   [More]  Descriptors: Adult Education, Community Development, Community Involvement, Community Programs

Lane, Pamela S. (1995). Conflict Resolution for Kids: A Group Facilitator's Guide. In an effort to counteract the violent and negative conflict resolution messages children receive from the mass media, schools throughout the United States are now teaching healthy problem-solving skills on a personal level. This book presents an outlined approach to the implementation of a conflict resolution experiential group, designed to be administered in five sessions. For each session, the materials required, session time, goals, activities, and evaluation considerations are given. The hands-on tasks are designed to develop conceptual understanding about cooperative versus competitive ways to solve problems. The book provides activities for five sessions and information on evaluating the impact of the individual sessions as well as the program as a whole. Contains numerous illustrations.

Gill, Muriel, Ed. (1985). Early Stimulation Manual for Parents of Deaf Infants: Appropriate Technologies for Development. Reprint Series R-58. This sign language manual, intended to help St. Lucia parents teach language to and communicate with their deaf or hard-of-hearing children, is prefaced by a child's description of living with a deaf sibling. An introduction discusses symptoms of hearing loss, defines speech and language, traces general expectations at school, and touches briefly on hearing aids, sign systems, and ways parents can help, including learning sign language. Subsequent sections address the following topics very briefly: causes of deafness; significance of early detection; directions for three teaching activities; hearing aids and how to care for them; discipline; toilet training; multiple handicaps; and vocational guidance. The bulk of the document consists of an illustrated sign language glossary, including the alphabet, numbers 1-10, nouns, pronouns, basic verbs, common phrases, and simple sentences.   [More]  Descriptors: Adventitious Impairments, Communication Aids (for Disabled), Deafness, Elementary Education
