Anger is a tool for change when it challenges us to become more of an expert on the self and less of an expert on others.
- Harriet Lerner

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.
The Oklahoma DOC shared a teacher’s reentry lesson plan, and a fun and thought-provoking reentry word games book, created by a student.
