Desegregation: On the Cutting Edge. A Review and Manual of the Indiana University Training Institute Program in Race and Sex Desegregation.
Aquila, Frank D., Ed.
The purposes of this book are (1) to provide a description of the Indiana University School of Education Training Institute's project for training school personnel to address the issues of racial and sexual desegregation, and (2) to supply educators with classroom exercises and activities that focus on racism and sexism and encourage non-prejudiced attitudes and behaviors among students. First, the historical perspective under which the Institute was developed is discussed. A description of the Institute's structure, project design, selection of participants, project objectives, staff, and program activities follows. The results of an evaluation designed to assess individual and Institute success in achieving the goals of the race and sex desegregation program are reviewed. A series of sexism, multicultural, and multiethnic classroom exercises are then provided. Finally, appended to the volume are a list of Institute participants, copies of Institute newsletters, comments of program participants, and a glossary of terms. (Author/GC)
