A brief narrative description of the journal article, document, or resource. This video guide was developed by the Peace Corps’ Office of World Wise Schools. The activities it describes are designed for a 3- to 5-day unit on Nepal, one of the Peace Corps’ oldest countries of service. The guide is for use in conjunction with the videotape, “Destination: Nepal.” Through study of the tape and guide, students will be able to: (1) describe Nepal in terms of cultural and geographic diversity; (2) compare and contrast aspects of Nepalese and U.S. life; and (3) relate the fundamental themes of geography to Nepalese culture and geography. Separated into Level A (grades three through five), Level B (grades six through nine), and Level C (grades 10 through 12), the guide includes information for teachers, worksheets, and suggestions for using the worksheets. Fifty-two references are included.
Peace Corps Nepal 1988 Preservice Technical Training Manual for Math and Science Teacher Trainers:

A brief narrative description of the journal article, document, or resource. The Peace Corps (PC) has provided teachers for Nepal’s schools for 25 years. The increasing population and especially the increased demand for educational opportunities is exceeding the supply of available trained teachers. In response to this need, PC/Nepal has shifted its emphasis in the education sector from providing teachers to providing teacher trainers. The purpose of this task analysis is to define this new PC role and to provide systematic information for preservice and inservice training activities. This document contains four sections: (1) task analysis; (2) job description; (3) technical training sessions; and (4) technical readings. The task analysis was developed through interviews and review of program materials and documentation. The other sections were developed based upon the task analysis. The job description, technical training sessions, and technical readings were compiled into a technical training manual which the mathematics and science trainees received during the first week of the preservice training. The last two sections are organized into general teacher and mathematics/science teacher training sessions.
