Models for Change: Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Education for Colleges and Universities. A Resource Guide and Video=Formation pour la prevention du harcelement et de la discrimination a l'intention des decisionnaires des colleges et des universites. Guide de ressources et video.
Ruemper, Wendy, Ed.; And Others
Intended as a reference for preventing harassment and discrimination in Ontario colleges and universities, this resource guide describes a project to develop models of alternative instructional delivery and presents the models. Part 1 provides an introduction to the guide, reviews the goals of the project, and describes a related training video containing footage of four of the models in action. Part 2 highlights common themes among and provides the contents of the following five delivery models: (1) the case model, providing participants with descriptions of realistic problems to solve in groups and designed to emphasize cooperative learning and reward group dynamics; (2) social action theater, in which students role-play vignettes about current social problems in their college to encourage viewers to directly confront harassing, discriminatory, and violent behavior; (3) theatrical masks, in which participants experience the feelings of being "the other" by wearing masks in scenarios designed to illustrate the "chilly climate" that can exist in the workplace or classroom; (4) cultural immersion, which provides participants with the opportunity to share their stories of experienced oppression; and (5) two models for French-speaking classrooms involving role playing and the examination of cultural differences through student monologues, songs, or texts. Part 3 provides resources, including selected articles, educational tools, a multiculturalism quiz, frameworks for preventing harassment and discrimination, training manuals, lists of 58 related books and 29 articles, and a list of companies distributing videotapes and films. Appendixes include a list of project members, advisory committee members, and button and poster contest winners. (TGI)
