Using correctional education data : issues and strategies by Rita J Kirshstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given the competition for limited resources at all levels of funding for correctional education coupled with public sentiment that swings between punishment of offenders and their rehabilitation, correctional education data at the program level have become more important than ever. This handbook explores the use of data in correctional education programs. It provides information on collecting, processing, and reporting data in correctional education settings and examines the role of data in evaluating correctional education programs. It assumes that collecting information on programs, participants, and outcomes is vital for program planners and administrators and may be useful for legislators and other groups who might be interested in funding correctional education programs. The handbook contains these sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Collecting Correctional Education Data"; (3) "Processing Correctional Education Data"; (4) "Reporting Correctional Education Data"; and (5) "Evaluating Correctional Education." An appendix contains some sample data reports. (Contains 13 exhibits and 10 references.) (Sld)

Choosing life skills : a guide for selecting life skills programs for adult and juvenile offenders by Osa D Coffey( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suggestions for teaching selected life skills to adult and juvenile offenders are presented in this document. The general purpose of life skills programming is to help persons live more successfully and to function better in their multiple roles as members of a family, community, and workforce. Life skills training is treated as an educational program emphasizing the world of work, practical living skills, personal growth and management, and social skills. The first section provides guidelines in terms of the process of searching for, evaluating, and making a final selection of products for implementation of a life skills program in a correctional setting. The second part supplies detailed descriptions of a number of commercial products that are appropriate and available for use in this type of program. A quick reference chart of the resources discussed in part 2 makes up part 3. Samples of necessary forms required to carry out a life skills program are provided. (Mka)
Success stories : life skills through literature by Meghan McLaughlin( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide is an introduction to the theory and practice of using literature to teach life skills to persons who are or have been incarcerated. It is organized in three sections, each written by a practitioner who has used literature in a particular environment with a particular audience. The three sections are "Why Literature? The Power of Stories" (Robert P. Waxler); "Why Literature? Critical Thinking" (Meghan McLaughlin); and "Why Literature? The Dramatic Text" (Jean Trounstine). Each section has three elements: (1) a brief think piece on what makes literature such an appropriate tool for use with incarcerated persons; (2) a description of the way in which the author uses literature; and (3) sample lesson plans for works that the author has used with students. The guide also contains a matrix of suggested readings that includes, for each work used, a description of relevant themes and instructional tips. A bibliography lists 15 general works, 4 works on theatre, and 2 on women's literature. (Kc)
Survey of state correctional education systems : analysis of data from 1992 field test by Rita J Kirshstein( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication represents a basic analysis of state correctional education data collected in 1992. It presents six summary tables that capture key data collected in 1992-1993 for adult and juvenile facilities as well as profiles of the states that responded to the survey. Forty-three states responded to the survey and one was eliminated because of missing data on key variables. Almost all states offer Adult Basic Education and ged preparation courses, and 23 of the 40 states offering such education offer it at every facility. An average of 62% of facilities within states offered high school coursework, with 10 states offering high school coursework in all facilities. An average of 69% of correctional institutions offered some type of vocational education, and vocational education was offered at every facility in 10 states. Only an average of 39% of correctional facilities within each state offered special education, but life and social skills training was offered at an average of 79% of correctional institutions within the states. Most inmates were enrolled in Adult Basic Education or ged instruction. Thirty-nine states responded to the survey about juvenile correctional education, but only 36 states provided a complete set of data. Almost all juvenile facilities offer elementary and secondary academic instruction, ged preparation, special education, and life and social skills training. Vocational education is offered at an average of 86% of juvenile institutions within a particular state. Appendixes contain profiles of education in adult and juvenile facilities. (Sld)
