For the benefit of future, present, and (though I’m not sure why) past Peace Corps volunteers, I have posted a few documents from when I was a teacher trainer in the Peace Corps. Feel free to use these as you see fit. You never know, they might come in handy—or just put you to sleep at night.
I should stipulate that these documents are posted here as-was, i.e., I haven’t edited or revised them after the fact, even though now I might know better. All files are Adobe Acrobat PDFs. Enjoy.
