Teaching Introduction to Corrections
by Ashley G. Blackburn




Overview -

Teaching Introduction to Corrections provides instructors of introductory corrections courses with effective teaching tools and practical advice to better engage students and support meaningful classroom experiences.

The book begins by defining corrections, addressing the potential challenges in teaching a course in corrections, and providing guidelines and advice for teaching the subject. The proceeding chapters help instructors design a meaningful course, develop learning outcomes, select a textbook, prepare for the first day of class, and consider ways in which to build rapport with students. Readers learn how to incorporate supplemental content, including readings and media, into their curriculum. They discover various teaching and learning methods that can positively impact learning, as well as different approaches to student assessment. The book concludes with chapters devoted to alternative teaching mediums, including hybrid and online courses, and the measurement of teaching effectiveness.

Filled to the brim with useful information and valuable guidance, Teaching Introduction to Corrections is an ideal resource for instructors who are new to teaching courses in corrections.
