Teaching English as a foreign language to large, multilevel classesMANUAL M0046INFORMATION COLLECTION & EXCHANGE
Peace Corps' Information Collection & Exchange (ICE) wasestablished so that the strategies and technologies developed byPeace Corps Volunteers, their co-workers, and their counterpartscould be made available to the wide range of developmentorganizations and individual workers who might find them useful.Training guides, curricula, lesson plans, project reports, manuals andother Peace Corps-generated materials developed in the field arecollected and reviewed. Some are reprinted "as is"; others provide asource of field based information for the production of manuals or forresearch in particular program areas. Materials that you submit to theInformation Collection & Exchange thus become part of the PeaceCorps' larger contribution to development.
