This is part II of a study undertaken to improve the effectiveness of Extension educational programs with the Indian people of South Dakota. Part I summarizes the research accumulated over the years on the Dakota Indian- Dr. Vernon Malan analyzes these research findings in terms of a social system ( "The Dakota Indian Social System," South Dakota Extension Circular 606). The second part of the study, reported in this publication, deals with the principles of program planning and their adaptation to Extension educational work with the Indian people of the Dakotas. It is concerned with the process of change and to an extent with the influence of situational factors described in part I. Regardless of this, the two studies can be treated as independent inquiries. Dr. John Photiadis has logically divided this part of the study into four chapters. The first describes the nature and principles of program planning in Extension; the second deals with relationships between the situatioIJ and selected program objectives; the third is concerned with teaching methods; and in the last chapter, program evaluation is the use of social and psychological objectives in Extension program planning. It is planned that these two studies will be used in training Extension worke rs and .others working with Indian people. Part II, in particular, has far-reaching implications in the conduct of Extension educational programs in this country and other areas of the world with people of different cultural heritages.
