Complete the Survey of Attitudes About Logic ModelsSurvey of Attitudes About Logic Models For your identification code, use any10-digit number that is easy for you to remember and no other class participant would use – for example, your home or cell phone number.

Goal: Participants will be able to describe the logic of how their program is supposed to work, using a logic model diagram. The course web site is http://home.comcast.net/~barose1/RoseSolutions/P D/LogicModels/LogicModels.html http://home.comcast.net/~barose1/RoseSolutions/P D/LogicModels/LogicModels.html Participants will also contribute to the formative and summative evaluation. Please sign the Consent Form.

Given a logic model diagram, participants will identify the 4 components of a logic model with 100% accuracy.

Mini Brownie Cupcakes Makes about 72 mini-cupcakes Active time:25 min Start to finish:1 1/2 hr December 1999 Vegetable-oil cooking spray 4 sticks unsalted butter, cut into pieces 8 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-process) 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 3/4 cups granulated sugar 8 large eggs Confectioners sugar (optional) Special equipment: mini-muffin tins and about 72 (1- by 1-inch) waxed paper liners Preheat oven to 350ºF and line mini-muffin tins with liners. Spray liners with cooking spray. Melt butter and chocolate in a 4-quart heavy pot over moderately low heat, stirring until smooth. Whisk together flour, cocoa, and salt. Remove pan from heat and whisk in granulated sugar. Add eggs, 1 at a time, whisking after each addition until incorporated, and stir in flour mixture just until blended. Spoon batter into muffin liners, filling cups to top, and bake in middle of oven 25 to 30 minutes, or until a tester comes out with crumbs adhering. Cool 5 minutes in tins and turn out onto racks. Repeat with remaining batter. Dust with confectioners sugar if desired. Cooks' note: Cupcakes may be made 2 days ahead and kept in an airtight container at room temperature. We used waxed candy/muffin liners for these cupcakes, which kept them from sticking and helped them develop attractive domed tops. (Spraying your muffin tins will keep them from sticking but tends to result in flat-topped cupcakes.) The liners are available by mail order from Sweet Celebrations, (800) 328-6722. They are not always well labeled; ask for item #601524 (red) or #502332 (white with gold).

A recipe for success! Explains how a program is supposed to work Like a recipe, it has several key components What components do you see in the 2 sample logic models?

The You and Your Toddler Parenting Series is offered throughout the Kennogaugh Falls Region for parents of children two to four years of age, especially those parents with a high school education or less. The series consists of six two-hour sessions facilitated by a public health nurse. Discussions include topics such as: taking care of a sick child; preparing healthy, balanced meals; communicating effectively; setting limits; talking sexuality with toddlers; balancing work and family life; and building self-esteem in toddlers. The sessions are offered at a variety of times and places throughout the week and are held in churches and community centres throughout the region in order to be available to as many parents as possible. Sessions are offered in English and French. The series aims to: increase parents knowledge about and skills in caring for their young child; inform parents about community resources; and help parents build an informal support network with other parents in the group. Ultimately it is hoped that this program will increase the number of parents able to adopt healthy parenting behaviours in order to increase the number of children able to attain their optimal level of physical, mental, emotional and social development.

For this course, well use a simplified template with only 4 components: Program name and info Inputs Outcomes Relationship

six two-hour sessions facilitated by a public health nurse

sessions are offered in English and French

increase parents knowledge about and skills in caring for their young child

In one sample logic model, this was presented as an outcome (the series aims to…) but really its an input – because it describes an activity of the program or what program staff will do

parents can identify community resources

This would be an outcome – because it describes what participants (parents) will be able to do as a result of the program

help parents build an informal support network with other parents in the group

This is also an input – because it describes an activity of the program or what program staff will do

parents know the name and phone number of at least one other parent in the group

This would be an outcome – because it describes what participants (parents) will know as a result of the program

Free articles and other publications on the Web

Self-directed learners

In one sample logic model, this was identified as an input (participants must be self- directed learners in order to participate). Be careful! What might be an input in one program could be an output in another.

Provide free, on-line training program: Basic Life Skills

strong basic life skills for learner

enhanced publicity and public relations for SDLC

One sample logic model identified this as an outcome – it is a good example of outcomes that are not necessarily participant-related.

The program is based on principles of adult learning and targets the identified needs of the learners

Notice that the sample logic models did not provide an explicit explanation of how or why the inputs lead to the outcomes. This is one potential relationship statement.
