Pre-Employment Skills Training Module for Adult Male Inmates at Riker's Island Correctional Facility.
Johnson, Janice K.
An instructional program called "Passport to a Job" provided prerelease training for inmates at Riker's Island Correctional Facility. The inmates were taught the important steps in preparing for employment; how to identify and cope with discriminatory employment; and how to demonstrate the interview techniques of opening the interview with a greeting and a smile, maintaining a responsive posture, asking questions, and exiting the interview with a smile and a handshake. Evaluative data collected on pretests, posttests, and a reaction questionnaire indicated that the 20-28 male inmates did learn and that they rated the program and the trainer's performance as excellent. During the four 3-hour sessions, the trainer utilized a detailed instructional strategy modeled on Robert Gagne's events of learning. Only printed instructional materials were used. The document includes recommendations for further use of the program, the needs assessment instrument, project planning charts, budgetary materials, the results of an instructional task analysis, details of the instructional strategy the trainer implemented, a pretest, a performance assessment checklist, a posttest, the reaction questionnaire, the trainer's guide to the program, student materials, and a 46-item bibliography.
