Kratovil, Jane; And Others
The model workshop manual is intended for use with state and local special education and sex equity staff. The manual contains a model workshop format, information on problems faced by disabled students, and suggested workshop activities. A sample workshop agenda, accompanying materials and resources developed, compiled, and field-tested at two regional workshops, and descriptions of mini-workshops are included. Step-by-step instructions for planning a workshop as well as a list of materials useful for its implementation are also given. The first section is on planning the event and covers identification of participants' needs, determination of goals and objectives, logistics, resources, and workshop evaluation. Most of the manual consists of the activities sequence including a self-assessment of knowledge and beliefs concerning persons with disabilities; a panel discussion to present facts about disabled females and males, legal aspects, the impact of bias, and a review of the literature; a small group discussion on the state and local perspective; and concurrent workshops on the following topics: achieving nonbiased behavior in the classroom, disabled women in transition, disabled women and role models, creating an inclusionary environment. Finally, a discussion focuses on on-the-job strategies for change. Also included are a list of resources for display and an evaluation form. (DB)
