Indiana's Best Practices Celebrating Diversity: Many Communities...One Indiana. A Resource Manual of Diversity Programs & Activities. Update 2000.
This updated resource manual of racial diversity programs and activities should help promote racial reconciliation and understanding among diverse communities. It includes 72 new programs, and six new Indiana communities actually embracing this challenge have been included: Crawfordsville, New Castle, Plainfield, Seymour, Valparaiso, and Wawasee. Three new categories have been added to the resource manual: Indian-American Services and Events, Persons with Disabilities, and Sexual Orientation. 14 new resources have been listed. The updated manual is not inclusive of all activities and resources occurring in Indiana, nor does the Indiana Civil Rights Commission endorse one resource over another, but it is reflective of some of the diversity programs developed and practiced by Hoosiers. The manual is divided into the following sections: "Index by Activity"; "Index by Location"; "Description of Best Practices, 1999 Edition"; and "Description of Best Practices, 2000 Update." Appendixes contain "Dialogue Guides"; "Additional Resources"; and "Supplemental Materials." (BT)
Descriptors: Community Involvement, Community Resources, Creative Thinking, Cultural Pluralism, Models, Multicultural Education, Program Descriptions, Racial Relations
