College Curriculum for Correctional Instructional Personnel.
EPD Consortium C, Houston, TX.
The project objective was to gather data for the purpose of identifying the scope and sequence of activities needed by instructional personnel in Texas correctional settings to meet the needs of students in a multidisciplinary setting. Six questionnaires were developed and administered to seven different sample groups: inmates, parolees, teachers, institutional support personnel, college professors and teachers of inmates, and selected college professors and institutional personnel. The report includes a chart representing the results of all data collected, listing the topics in rank order of interest as chosen by inmates, parolees, institutional instructors, and support personnel. Also resulting from the survey is a list of specific courses with concepts to be developed: human relations, criminology, health education, social problems, communication skills, Spanish, psychology of personality, economics, psychology of adult learning, abnormal psychology, social psychology, and vocational psychology. Appended to the report are four questionnaires indicating total number of responses from parolees, inmates, teachers, and institutional support personnel. Also included is a list of concepts which, according to the survey, instructors in an institutional setting should exhibit and be able to teach. (NJ)
