Correctional Education Cyclical Curriculum.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Corrections, Oklahoma City.
This publication is the curriculum guide for a 720-hour open-entry, open-exit program of education for female prisoners at the Eddie Warrior Correctional Center (EWCC) in Oklahoma, which has increased the average number of EWCC inmates awarded General Educational Development (GED) certificates from 32 to about 200. The guide begins with an explanation of how students are assigned either a Laubach tutor or a computer laboratory class, based on their tested reading ability. Next are descriptions of instruction provided at six tables to which students rotate to study vocabulary, language expression, reading comprehension, language mechanics, mathematics concepts, and mathematics computation. Computer reinforcement is described next. The guide concludes with lists of what students need to know to pass national tests. (KC)
