Developing a Role-Model Index. A Guide Book.
Ross, Eva; Smith, Armenia
This handbook consists of guidelines and sample materials for use by individuals who want to learn how to identify nontraditional role models, implement a linkage conference for vocational educators and nontraditional workers, and help nontraditional workers serve as role models for students in vocational programs. The first part of the guide, which is a description of the role model index, summarizes the goals and objectives of the index, provides a timeline for implementing the various action steps of the model, and sets forth guidelines, sample letters, and forms for use in identifying nontraditional workers. Examined next are procedures for organizing a linkage conference to bring together vocational educators and nontraditional workers. Various followup activities, including poster development and publicity efforts, are described. Concluding the guide are recommendations concerning implementation of the model and a brief bibliography of the works consulted in developing the role model index. Appendixes to the manual include a list of the names and addresses of some of the individuals identified as being nontraditional role models and a directory of Hispanic women who have agreed to work with vocational educators in the capacity of nontraditional role models.
