Journal of Correctional Education, v45 n1 insert Mar 1994
This document, which is designed to showcase effective correctional educational programs and teaching techniques, contains descriptions of five teaching tips submitted by practicing correctional educators. Described first is a multidisciplinary team approach whereby teams of nurses, psychiatrists, social workers, academic teachers, counselors, and others employed at a medium-security correctional institution conduct a drug and alcohol education program for inmates experiencing mental illness, developmental disabilities, and/or behavioral problems. A mentoring program is presented in which computer technology students studying in an environment of individualized instruction serve as technical and experiential advisors (mentors) to other students who have completed less class time than the student mentors. The next two tips reported deal with the importance of teaching the whole person and with having students select quiz questions/demonstration topics from a bag. The final practice shared is a program for acknowledging students' success by selecting students of the month and quarter. (MN)
