Intended for educators, this book aims to build their skills and confidence as they educate for social change. Chapter 1 is about strategy--factors to consider before getting involved in an educational program. It discusses the importance of putting oneself as an educator into the picture and of analyzing the broader social context in which educators' work takes place. Chapter 2 draws from the authors' experience in designing educational events so they meet the objectives people bring to them. A discussion on planning an educational program concludes with a checklist for effective design. Chapter 3 focuses on educational activities with examples of some that have been found useful. Each activity has these components: why use it?, time it takes, what one needs, how it is done, variations, and source. Chapter 4 concerns facing the challenges of facilitating a group, making the most of who one is, and working through conflicting agendas. Chapter 5 looks back at some things the authors learned from past experiences. It examines the power relations inherent in learning situations and considers the question of how one might increase one's impact on the processes of social change. Chapter 6 looks forward to challenges of the 1990s--economic, political, social, and cultural and ideological. A postscript contains a discussion of the authors as they neared the end of the writing process and comments from colleagues who read the manuscript. The bibliography lists 45 publications. (YLB)
