There are lots of different sources of information out there regarding issues in, and solutions for, providing instruction within a secure Correctional environment. I will post a new resource each week for us to talk about and to pass on to our colleagues and students. The LINCS Community is amassing an impressive collection of vetted resources, but there are also many other articles, studies and ideas available for general consumption. I'd like to encourage all of you to share any resources that you have found valuable with the group so that we can engage in meaningful discussion of current information and how that information impacts how we behave in the classroom.
The first resource I'd like to highlight -- A Re-Entry Education Model (http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ovae/pi/AdultEd/reentry-model.pdf) -- is a Department of Education resource and was highlighted previously. With John Linton's recent post regarding the Vera Institute's newest Re-Entry Initiative I believe there is value in revisiting this innovative model and talking about ways in which we are, or can be, implementing it within our classrooms and facilities.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas!
