Participatory Planning for Action by Bill Lee and Mike Balkwill

Our experience of "taking the leap" to learn these techniques, and then to build up our repertoire later, is very much in the tradition of folk music. Popular education techniques, and the traditions of the groups and practitioners who use them, are passed along just as the songs and traditions of folk performers are.
