Malcolm X was admired by many, for his courage and intelligence. In his essay “prison Studies” Malcolm X writes about his journey in prison, he tells us how he met his friend Bimbi who inspired him to become better and so he started his own “prison” education. Malcolm X’s idea of freedom is knowledge. In his “Prison Studies “he said :” I never had been so truly free” ( “prison Studies” Malcolm X) . Back in his prison days, he used a small light that pierced through his cell just to be able to continue reading the dictionary.
In 1971 a psychologist named Philip Zimbardo decided to make an experiment about the people in the prisons. How people react in the prisons and how they react in these situations. Zimbardo wants to check the human behaviors in these conditions. To perform this experiment basement of Standford University was available and twenty four students were hired to perform the role of the guards and prisoners. That was most notorious experiment in the history of the psychology.
Francisco clearly admits to Mark and his classmates that he wears a mask while in custody. In his essay he writes, “I know in here sometimes I have to put a mask on and become somebody that I am really not, but that’s how you survive in here. I might seem like if
Subsequently, when the real facts come about, the viewer Andrew Laediss is said to not be able to live with his trauma and guilt, hence creating a second personality to escape it. Similarly a medium shot is used as Teddy is seen walking through chains and shackles clanging together. The correlation gives the audience a prison feel, this later links reality to Teddy as he is in fact a prisoner at Ashcliffe Asylum. Seen for the first time chuck is observed
I agree that the conflict between Lee Strunk and Dave Jensen alludes to future conflict between soldiers; however, I believe this conflict also reveals the degraded mindframe that these soldiers endured during the war. Like you pointed out, Jensen becomes wildly unstable after the fight. O’Brien even claims that, “The distinction between good guys and bad guys disappeared for him” (63). Jensen believed he couldn’t even trust his own ally. He would have restless nights and would break down, all because he believed Strunk would kill him over a measly broken nose.
The Stanford prison experiment was led by Philip Zimbardo with the purpose of studying the psychological effects of being a prisoner and a prison guard. The participants of the research study were male college students. Once selected, a coin toss determined which males would be prisoners and prison guards. The experiment took place at Stanford University, where a mock prison was crafted. Zimbardo acted as the warden or superintendent of the mock prison.
Philip G. Zimbardo was a well-known psychology; he originated and initiated the Stanford Prison Experiment (SPE). The SPE was an experimental mock prison. Those who were involved in the experiment were Zimbardo, three graduate-student colleagues: W. Curis Banks, David Jaffe, and Craiy Haney. Along with 21 male college age students who volunteered to be the research subjects. Zimbardo(1973) expressed “We sought to understated more about the process by which people called “prisoners” lose their liberty, civil rights, independence and privacy , while those called “guards” gain social power by accepting the responsibility for controlling and managing the lives of their dependent charges.”
A mission statement provides a succinct definition of why the organization exists and what it hopes to achieve” (2002, p.2). Initially, the purpose of the prison is house and rehabilitate the inmates that have been sentenced to service their time there for the crimes they have committed. However when Warden Norton reveals his inside-out program, which was a program he developed to take the inmates outside the prison to essentially work for the state on various jobs of the Wardens choosing. The Warden describes his program as “a genuine, progressive advance in corrections and rehabilitation” (1994). At this point Warden Norton reveals the prison’s new mission statement as “providing a valuable service to the community and at a bare minimum of expense to Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Taxpayer” (1994).
Reaction Paper Christmas in Purgatory A Photographic Essay on Mental Retardation EDUC 5333 – Legal Aspects of Special Education Ms. Sharon Cunningham, Instructor R. Stacey Pollard 09/02/2016 Christmas in Purgatory; A Photographic Essay on Mental Retardation was written by Burton Blatt and Fred Kaplan in August 1966. The copy reviewed for this assignment was printed by Human Policy Press, Syracuse, New York in 1974. This photographic essay brings to light the deplorable living conditions of men, women, and children who were residing in institutions for the mentally retarded. It was not published with the intent to criticize but with hope and expectations of much-needed changes.
The main aims of the Stanford Prison Experiment were to study the roles that people play in a prison environment and to determine what psychological effects the role of prisoner and guard had on the young students. The study was carried out in a simulated prison in which researchers, led by Philip Zimbardo, observed and recorded the effects of the institution on the students. Zimbardo wanted to find out whether the atrocity reported among guards in American prisons was due to the deranged personalities of the guards or due to the prison environment.(McLeod, 2008) The prison setting in a basement of Stanford University was developed with the guidance of a consultant, it had solitary confinement, no clocks and secret recording operations. Once the prison setting was constructed the experiment was ready to be conducted.
A mock prison has to be created with the personnel and prisoners created from “normal” or average people to take on these roles. An ad was put out to find volunteers from where 24 students were chosen, 12 to role play prisoners and the other half to role play guards. From these groups of 12, only 9 were actually used from each role. These students had no prior record of criminal arrests, medical conditions, or mental disorders. The purpose was to evaluate the development of standards and the effects of these roles, labels, and social outcomes in a simulated prison
As I was choosing which 8 point project to do, a friend in the class suggested researching Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment. Prior to this assignment, I actually had not heard about this experiment. After researching this happening, and reading the full story, as written by Dr. Zimbardo, I, in all honesty, immediately began to feel ill. How could people be so horrible to one another? How could the people portraying the guards live with themselves after treating the prisoners so poorly?
In 1971 Standford University held an experiment to see the psychological changes in people who are given higher authority and those who are not due to the way they act around one another. In this experiment a group of college students were split into two groups, one of which were to be prison guards and the others the prisoners. Throughout the course of the study psychologists were able to study the change in atmosphere and development of people from each group.
This is easy, I thought to myself. I did what he told me to do on the dummy that is used to people don’t get hurt. Now it was my turn to smirk. “Wow if you can do that without training then I think you are ready to go on your first mission.”
This will show us that we should treat our prisoners better at times. We can very cruel to prisoners. This trip matters for high school students, because they will get to see how the prison system works. The trip will take us to see each invidual prison. The prison trips will teach high school students about the prison system by showing what Sing Sing, Eastern State, and Alacatraz prison has to offer.
