Demographics: A Case for Equality in Alaska: A Training Module.
This module was designed to increase awareness of demographic trends and their subsequent effect on school populations, identify the growing number of at-risk students, especially those who are People of Color and women, and to highlight the need for equitable education for all students. The module provides all the materials a trainer would need to educate personnel on this topic. Five learning objectives are presented for meeting this goal. Each objective is accompanied by a method, a technique, the time to be spent on the objective, some activity to illustrate the point, a rationale for the methods involved, and a list of needed resources to carry out the objective. These objectives are: (1) Participants will meet each other and trainer will inform participants of purpose of looking at demographics; (2) Participants will become aware of their lack of knowledge; (3) Participants will gain knowledge on demographics; (4) Participants will discuss ways to effect changes and make educational opportunities more equitable based on information covered during this workshop; (5) Participants will evaluate the workshop. The module also features master copies for copying agendas, evaluation forms, and transparencies. The total contact time for this module is 1 hour and 45 minutes. (RJM)
