Small-Group Work for Session I of Model Cities Training Program

Elect group leader or spokesman — Mf, Rothe. We ohn
Make list of names of participants Sel cola

Our work in groups of ten (10) has three purposes:
1) to help the participants to get better acquainted with each other;

2) to help them examine their own thoughts and feelings about the Model
Cities program and their role as board members;

3) to provide us as planners of the training program with information
about the participants' knowledge, needs and attitudes regarding the
Model Cities program and the training program itself.

The content of each group session will consist of consideration of three

1) "Suppose someone stopped you on the street or confronted you ina
meeting with the question, 'What makes you think you're qualified
to be on the Model Cities board?' What would be your answer?'"!

2) "Suppose we gave each of you a $1,000 grant, to be used in any way
you choose, to better prepare yourself for participation in the
Model Cities board. How would you use the money?"!

3) "Suppose that you ibe seni, are the Model Cities Board, and that
you were offered the answers. to three (and only three) questions
about the Model Neighborhood Area. What three questions would
you as a Board ask?'"!

The first two questions are to be answered by each member of the

group individually. (Group discussion could follow the individual answers
if that seerns natural.) The answer to the third question should be
arrived at by consensus of the group.

Total time available for the group discussion is 100 minutes, allowing
about 30 minutes for consideration of each question. This is a flexible
standard, however, and if a lively discussion develops around one
question or another, the leader need not cut it off for the sake of
covering all three questions.
