Curriculum Guide: Life Skills Course for Corrections.
Mardell, E. A.
This curriculum guide outlines modifications to the life skills lessons contained in the Life Skills Coaching Manual prepared by Saskatchewan NewStart. The course changes are based on adult education experience at a penitentiary, a literature search, and interviews with inmates and staff at a correctional institution. As with the correctional therapeutic community concept, a method of social rehabilitation in which inmates practice attitudes and behaviors to develop constructive relationships, the ultimate objective of the life skills course for corrections is the successful integration of the inmate into society. Included in the document are lesson sequence and content, the curriculum guide, and a bibliography. Related documents are available as ED 050 346 and, in this issue, VT 018 091 and 018 093. (MF)
