To be young was very heaven : women in New York before the First World War by Sandra Adickes( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the years before World War I, New York City's Greenwich Village was a place of great artistic and political ferment. Political causes attracted throngs of supporters. Artistic movements filled cafes and restaurants with boisterous conversation. And for the first time, women began to seize power and play important roles in the political and artistic landscape of the time: Margaret Sanger began her crusade for birth control. Mabel Dodge hosted her salons for the avant-garde. Dorothy Day founded the Catholic Workers Movement. Elizabeth Gurley Flynn helped to organize the Workers of the World. The list of women who played integral roles in American life and letters during this time is endless, and Sandra Adickes captures them all, from Emma Goldman to Charlotte Perkins Gilman, while evoking the now-lost paradise that New York offered to women at the turn of the century."--Jacket

Annotation Sandra Adickes recalls her experiences during 1964, when the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) established Freedom Schools as part of its Freedom Summer campaign in Mississippi. With a curriculum developed by dedicated educators, SNCC workers, and a staff of teachers and student volunteers, the schools provided a learning experience and teaching style that revealed to students who had known only the experience of segregated education what schools should be. The achievements of the students involved in Freedom Summer lifted the expectations of students who followed them and hastened the end of segregated schools in Mississippi

A Reentry Curriculum Guide for the Adult Learner by Sandra Adickes( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Designed to assist educators in the development of reentry programs for adult learners, this guide provides information on the creation, operations, and outcomes of Project Chance, a reentry program initiated at Brooklyn College during the 1970's to serve ethnically diverse, lower and middle income women from the Brooklyn community. A foreward to the guide highlights the staff's willingness to consider participants' needs and reactions in modifying the content and approach of the program. Following an introduction to the outcomes of the course from its inception in 1976 to its discontinuation in 1980, the guide discusses: (1) one of the major program components--a pre-college, reentry course designed to enable women to explore options, build basic skills competency, and gain self-confidence; (2) redefining the goals of the reentry curriculum based on the first year's evaluation; (3) revising the curriculum to strengthen the basic skills component; (4) the mathematics skills component; (5) the language arts curriculum; (6) the life planning skills curriculum, which emphasizes self-awareness, self-evaluation, decision-making skills, and the ability to describe probable future situations; (7) support services and counseling; and (8) providing information about other programs and services. For each topic, information on special problems, barriers, and solutions is provided. (Ejv)

Meeting the Needs of Working Class Women in Post-Secondary Education by Sandra Adickes( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper describes the problems and successes of adult working-class women at Staten Island Community College (New York) who have been moved by the aspirations enunciated by the women's movement to enter the college in increasing numbers. Among the problems that such reentering women face in the pursuit of a higher education are ambivalence and resistance from husbands, guilt feelings as a consequence of having to leave their children for extended periods, lack of institutional sensitivity to the unique needs of returning women, academic sexual stereotyping, and lack of sensitivity of male faculty members. In addition, the recent imposition of tuition charges in the City University of New York system poses an obstacle to program completion for working-class women, who typically have no income independent of their spouses. The severe reduction of counseling and support personnel throughout the City University also impinges negatively on working-class women, who have special needs for counseling designed to encourage them. Response of the institution to the special needs of returning working-class women has been inadequate thus far. Improved levels of counseling are needed, both for the woman student, and in some instances, members of her family, as are career advocacy and vocational advocacy. It is notable that some women students have taken to political organizing to obtain needed educational opportunities. (Jds)
Feminism Vis a Vis Social Change by Sandra Adickes( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

While demonstrating the potential of feminist education to promote positive social change, experiences with the women's studies programs at Staten Island Community College (sicc) and Brooklyn College (bc) also dramatize the need for women's studies to overcome factionalism and middle-class elitism in order to construct a pedagogy for oppressed women. The sicc program, initiated in 1972, allowed women on the verge of autonomy to share life experiences in informal groups and to help one another pursue aspirations beyond traditional women's role. Yet after several successful efforts and just as the program was to become formalized through the establishment of a women's study center, differences between academic, Marxist, and lesbian feminists rendered the program directionless and ineffective. Even more complicated were the difficulties encountered at bc, where conflicts between women's studies faculty and women's center staff were compounded by problems of student motivation. Bc students, less affluent than sicc women, existed in a state of dependency created by welfare and marriage, and were unwilling to engage in critical dialog or take responsibility for their education. Therefore, the program at bc emphasized a core curriculum of basic skills with a network of peer support. Knowledge about the role of minority and working class women is needed to advance the bc program from this continuing education role. (Jp)
