Cultural Writing. Disability studies. Simulation exercises--activities in which participants get into wheelchairs, tie on blindfolds or stuff earplugs into their ears to "simulate" having a disability - have become a popular "Awareness Day" event. But they've also come under fire from disability activists and educators, who criticize them as demeaning and inaccurate. DISABILITY AWARENESS -- DO IT RIGHT! is an all-in-one how-to guide from the Ragged Edge Online community, with tips, techniques and handouts for a successful Awareness Day. Short background articles and planning lists help you organize fun and effective Awareness Day activities that disability rights activists support. Concise, easy-to-read chapters show you how to carry out 6 specific types of activities, how to handle follow-up discussion and even how to spur social change. Appendices include resources and articles to use with Awareness Day participants.
