This training manual is designed to assist Peace Corps volunteers to plan, produce and use instructional materials in the classroom and in the community. The emphasis is on materials that volunteers can produce or obtain locally at minimal expense. Included is a brief section about projected media which are useful means of communication In those situations where materials and equipment are available.

The manual is structured under five major headings: Planning Instructional Materials, Using Media in the Classroom and in the Community, Presentation Methods and Materials, Basic Production Techniques, and Writing. In addition, there is an appendix with supplementary information and a limited index for reference.

The verbal and pictorial content for this manual has come from many sources.

Publications of the Peace Corps, the United States Department of Agriculture, the Agency for International Development, the Oversea Visual Aids Centre, and UNESCO have provided ideas on how to make and use media. The most valuable source of information has been the students and faculty of Indiana University who have worked with international programs either on campus or overseas. Many of the ideas and illustrations have been taken directly from materials that have been prepared either on campus or in overseas projects. The writers apologize for not giving specific credit for these ideas and gratefully acknowledge the value of all contributors to this manual, particularly the assistance of Mr. David Danielson and Mr. Kenneth Skirvin of the Peace Corps who monitored the project.
