Lora E. Vess’s “Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” is, for the most part, a clear example of writing in the social sciences, while John Streamas’s “Narrative Politics in Historical Fictions for Children” follows the writing conventions for the humanities discipline. Writing in the social sciences and humanities present different ideas and perform different tasks for their readers; Vess’s article tended to guide the reader through her conducted experiment, and she writes to achieve her goals. Streamas’s article presented the reader with his opinions on the subject, and was intended to almost persuade the reader to think about what exactly he is saying. Writing in the humanities and social sciences will almost always have different rhetorical situations, and Vess’s “Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” and Streamas’s “Narrative Politics in Historical Fictions for Children” clearly divide the line between the two
The most interesting part of Ward’s book was learning about the many influential people throughout the history of America that saw the inequality in the system, and fought hard to change that. The story that was especially intriguing was about Kenneth and Mamie Clark. During Harlem’s response to the civil rights era, the local race relations expert and his wife sought to find more representative and innovative approaches to solve juvenile social control. Their focus was on racial integration in their clinic, the Northside Center for Child Development. It was there that the couple observed the psychological effects that segregation has on black adolescents.

Forman Jr. is a professor at Yale Law School. He teaches Constitutional Law and seminars on race and the criminal justice system.

Forman achieves this by appealing to a liberal audience.
I was already in law-enforcement as a Baltimore City Police Officer, so I decided to get a degree in criminal justice to help my career as an officer. Furthermore, I became a part-time criminal justice professor in the year 1999, then made full-time 5 years ago; and later became the criminal justice department chair. In addition, my strength is that I can relate to students with the same measure try to get the best out of them. Nonetheless, my weakness at first was coming from a policing job with a uniform into joining civilians as a professor. Also, trying to get things done in the cultural educational environment.
The article “Domestic Violence Abusers” talked about protection from abuse orders. This empirical journal was researched by G. W. Etter Sr. and M. L. Birzer. Wichita, Kansas was the location for their research because they had access to abuse orders and domestic violence data. The data used were court fillings from January 18 through December 31, 2002. The authors questioned what general characteristics did domestic offenders have, arrest records of domestic abusers, and the differences in records of female and male sentencing in the past.
As life goes on you continue to see a lot of stuff from the past and how life repeats itself. I was reading a book about Emmet Till called “Getting Away with Murder: The True Story of The Emmet Till Case.” I really feel like college students should read this book. This book teaches us stuff about or past that we just do not know. I truly feel like this book would have a great impact on my students in my class. We are at the day and age where you still see racism every day.
I realized my love for law when I watched those shows and went on my job shadow. I knew I wanted to be a crime scene investigator/officer and could see myself doing the job in the future. I am attending college to make a better life for myself, network with future employers through the honors program, gain experience through internships, and gain hands on experience in Forensic Science and Criminal Justice. I will learn skills necessary for my occupation goal. Some of the skills
As we have discussed I have done some research on ways to prevent recidivism among our medium to high risk offenders and whether it would be beneficial for Community Corrections departments to implement evidence-based programs in the case management of these offenders. To obtain data for this report I referred to government and professional publications; I also conducted various interviews with individuals who are knowledgeable of these practices. This report addresses whether certain programs used in community corrections are an effective practice for the medium to high risk criminal population. I am going to provide three different programs and their costs that could be implemented in community based corrections. Significance of Problem:
As always one 's not going to know everything about everything. One of the questions I had before I started doing some research was how will the training experience be like. Since I know The post-secondary education needed to become a probation officer is a bachelor’s degree. "Typically in justice administration, social work, corrections, psychology or in some places a master’s degree in one of the preceding fields probation officer one will be working with criminals. So how will the training help me when an offender gets a little out of hand?

Having already earned a bachelor’s degree in criminology and criminal justice, I am currently applying to a master’s in public policy and administration program with a specialization in criminal justice policy and administration. It is my career goal to address criminal justice issues, such as mass incarceration, through research, program development and evaluation, and policy analysis, especially as they affect the most vulnerable members of our society. Although the Spring 2016 Criminal Justice Research Internship was posted over a month ago, I am still going through with this submission because it is exactly the type of work I want to do and I believe that criminal justice reform hinges on the collaboration between local and state agencies.
Research Evidence Supporting empirical evidence is overwhelming for the restorative justice process and its use with young offenders in the juvenile justice system and because of this, focus will be placed on adult offender studies. The Center for Restorative Justice & Peacemaking at the University of Minnesota conducted an independent review of multiple meta-analyses of restorative justice programs. In these studies, victims participated on average in about 50% of the cases but rates as high as 90% were reported. The willingness to participate was motivated by the need to help the offender change their life choices, understand the justification of the crime, and to share their pain with the offender (Umbreit, Vos, & Coates, 2006, p. 2).
Is the Prison Fellowship program effective among successful ex-offenders post imprisonment? Researchers have shown that social traits and the psychological well-being of an ex-convict are both challenging phases in the process of adjusting into society. In a classical experimental design, this study will seek to observe social behaviors and mental health changes among inmates prior to booking, while in prison, and post-imprisonment over the course of two years. The goal of the study is to examine changes over social and mental health qualities between those participating in the program and those who are not. The experimental group will consist of men and women who are active in the program while incarcerated, and the control group will consist
