Implementing the Indiana Model. Equity through Change.
Blatz, Amelia; And Others
This manual has grown out of a multiyear statewide effort to institutionalize gender equity in a variety of educational settings. It presents a step-by-step process model for creating a climate for change that can be applied to educational innovations in general as well as change for gender equity. The following model components are explored: (1) commit to the vision; (2) form coalition; (3) empower coalition; (4) assess local needs; (5) adapt the vision to needs; (6) develop a local action plan; (7) implement strategies; (8) evaluate the process; (9) refine the model; (10) infuse change through the process; and (11) arrive at the win-win solution. Work of the consortium in implementing change in 13 demonstration sites and a technical-assistance project is described with some specific information on each of the sites. Descriptions include discussions of experiences, roadblocks, budgets, and appropriate reporting. Fifteen maps show the location of the Career Centers, Indiana Vocational Technical College, Vincennes University, and the various high schools. (SLD)
