Reentry Studies: Correctional Educators Share Reentry Innovation


Oklahoma Dept of Corrections

The educators in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections have created an innovative approach to reentry studies. They built their curriculum utilizing a number of resources assembled together, much like a college course, to provide not only the information contained in the lessons, but also the understanding that there is no single way to study reentry (there are many ways), and also to incorporate Fair Shake’s software into their lessons inside so that the incarcerated will be comfortable utilizing the website once they go home.   They share their curriculum here for your consideration.


Now the Oklahoma DOC has shared a teacher’s reentry lesson plans AND a  fun and thought-provoking reentry word games book! 

12 days of Reentry Lesson plans (incorporating Fair Shake)
