This Teacher Training Reference Manual and the accompanying Teacher Training Guide were developed over the course of several months through the collaborative efforts of a team of individuals at the Center for International Education, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. It was produced under contract to and in association with the Education Sector in the Office of Training and Program Support, Peace Corps, Washington.

A participatory team approach was used to produce this set of resources for teacher trainers. We are grateful to the following Content Specialists who contributed their knowledge and expertise by researching and writing on selected topics: Jane T. Benbow, Paul Englesberg, Robert Fuderich, Marilyn Gillespie, Mohammed Farah A. Good, Dawn Gordon, Mark Lynd, David S. McCurry and Douglas Passanisi.

Professors George E. Urch and Robert J. Miltz, the Principal Investigators of this project, provided key editorial and content input for the early drafts of both the Manual and the Guide.

David S. McCurry served as Production Coordinator and designed and produced the illustrations, tables, and other graphics which appear in the following pages. The time and effort David spent designing and redesigning the graphic layout and producing the camera-ready copy resulted in a set of materials that are easy to use, read, and reference.

We would like to thank the following staff members of the Peace Corps Education Sector, Office of Training and Program Support who worked closely with the managing editor to design and edit these materials: John Guevin, Education Specialist/Project Manager, Kathie Judge, Education Specialist/ Technical Reader, and Beryl Bucher, Education Technician/Technical Reader. Their openness and collaborative attitude complimented the team approach used to produce this manual.

We are indebted to the Center for International Education for the general support and specific helpful advice provided during the course of production. Particular recognition and thanks must go to Barbara Gravin-Wilbur, the fiscal administrator, and Anna E. Donovan and Kathy Richardson who spent many last minute hours helping with draft revisions and preparing copies to be mailed.

A special thanks goes to Anne-Laurence Dodge who, as Training Coordinator/Associate Editor assisted in editing the first draft of the Teacher Training Reference Manual. Anne's experience as a trainer has proved an invaluable resource in the production of both books.

In addition to all of the staff who participated visibly in the development of these materials we would like to acknowledge all those people from the many countries in which we have worked who have, directly or indirectly, shared their views on education with us.
