Walking the Walk: A Guide to Diversity Resources for Trainers.
Catlett, Camille, Comp.; Winton, Pamela J., Comp.; Parrish, Rosalie N., Comp.; White, Cindy, Comp.
This resource guide contains an annotated listing of high quality resources, including videotapes, books, curricula and other materials, that can be used to assist in developing a more diverse and better prepared workforce to serve infants, toddlers, children and families. It includes: (1) materials that can be used to recruit and support culturally and linguistically diverse students and faculty in higher education; (2) materials to assist faculty, trainers, supervisors and other decisionmakers in preparing personnel to work effectively with culturally and linguistically diverse children and families; and (3) materials to support and strengthen linkages among institutions of higher education, families, community practitioners and agencies. All items have been reviewed carefully to ensure that they are culturally and linguistically sensitive and, to the extent possible, free from bias or prejudice. The guide is divided into two sections: Resources and Appendices. The Resources section describes primary and supplemental resources and includes information on the content of the materials, the medium, the source, and the cost. Five appendices include: (1) Diversity Organizations and Associations; (2) Diversity Publishers; (3) Source Lists; (4) Title Index; and (5) Author Index. (SG)
