Period 2,3 – Criminal Behavior

Agenda:

Step #1 – A back up copy of the online is under the sub plans for you in case you need it. Today while I am gone you are going to use your reference notebooks to analyze the inmates from the Wabash Correctional Facility in Illinois. The Level 3 Costa’s Questions you will see today were written by the Criminal Behavior class of 2015. You will soon also be writing your own Costa’s Level 3 questions to review material when I am gone. You only have this class period to finish this online activity though. The portal for m.socrative.com will shut when each class ends. Additionally, remember when you have a substitute teacher the day itself will be worth 25 participation points. During class the substitute will monitor your behavior and work habits. If you are on task you will earn your full points. If you are not, then the substitute teacher will mark down your name and recommended to me how many points they feel you earned. Just to clarify, the substitute is not grading your behavior. They are observing you and recommending to me how many participation points they feel your actions deserved while I was gone.

Step #2 –Please read the italicized tasks below to them just in case they have forgotten how to use m.socrative.com

Task #1 – Form into groups of four. These are not groups of your choosing. These are the groups you are assigned to. Remember, if you don’t recall what group you are in look up. The group numbers are on the ceiling.

Task #2 – A minimum of one person in the group will be the “Technician” and have a cell phone that can access “m.Socrative.com”. The other three members of the group will need lined paper and they will need to write their names on the top right of this paper.

Task #3 – Once you figure out your group’s technician have them go to “m.socrative.com” and enter the room number: a89559b4

Task #4 – Now have the technician enter the first name and last initial of each person in the group. (Run out of room? Shorten the names down further. I want to know who is working with who)

Task #5 – The Technician with the phone will read the questions that pop up to the group and the students with the paper will copy down the questions and write down their responses to the questions.

Task #6 – Talk about your responses as a group and have the technician type in your agreed upon response and hit “Submit”. Do this for every question that comes up. I will be monitoring your responses remotely to see how fast and slow each group is moving.

Task #7 – When you finish the questions the technician will hit “logout” on the top right of their screen. The group members who wrote down their responses will hand them in.

Behavioral Assessment of Correctional Inmates

Unit:

Prison Systems

Unit S.M.A.R.T. Goal:

Students will be able to recognize the different correctional methodologies prisons around the world use when attempting to modify inmate behavior and formulate solutions to the weaknesses they identify in each system.

Today’s Objective:

#1 – Students will utilize their reference notebooks during an initial inmate behavioral analysis in order to gather enough evidence to compare and contrast their mentalities and reasons for turning to crime. (Wrap up from Friday)

#2 – Due to the fact that I may be pulled out tomorrow to attend a conference at the PLC in downtown students are going to prep observation notes about the Russian Federation prison system with specific attention to their equivalent to a SuperMax Prison.

*Lesson objective written with this downloadable guide -> Writing Learning Objectives Guide

Agenda:

Step #1 – I may have to be gone tomorrow. I want to go over substitute day procedures with you today in order to make sure you know what is expected when I am gone.

Step #2 – Quick student survey. The questions to the survey are posted below this line.

  • On a scale of 1-5 how dangerous do you think each inmate is? Why? What is the one main reason behind your decision to rate them how you did?
  • Are you sure you want to try out Socrative.com tomorrow if I have to be gone?
  • Do you feel any of the inmates have a psychiatric disorder? Which ones? What is one reason specifically you classified 1-4 of them with a disorder?
  • What is the point of Prison?

Step #3- Students will be wrapping up their observation notes on the four inmates from WaBash SuperMax Correctional facility in Illinois. Don’t forget to set up your observation chart like the one below.

Prisoner Analysis Grid

Step #4 – Initial Diagnosi’ will be given by students at the completion of the observation period. I am curious to see after your initial observations what you are thinking of these four inmates.

Step #5- You will now be introduced to the Russian Prison system and their version of a SuperMax facility. While you are being introduced to the Russian Prison system I want you to set up and utilize a basic two piece Venn Diagram like the one depicted below to compare and contrast the Russian Prison system with the United States.

Venn Diagram Example

Step #6 – Be aware that step 5 is leading to write a compare and contrast essay. If you would like some ideas for how to write one or improve your skills here is a guide created by the Santa Barbara City College.
