Thinking passages: the evolving concept of “family”: the author of the first article, kate rice, quotes alexis walker: “family is both a belief and a practice.”

Thinking Passages: The Evolving Concept of “Family”: The author of the first article, Kate Rice, quotes Alexis Walker: “Family is both a belief and a practice.” Professor Walker explains that her students tend to view a family in traditional terms, comprising a mom, a dad, and children. Yet when she asks students whether they come from a family like that, only a few put their hands up. How would you explain this discrepancy? Did you find the same split perspective in your response to the first question? Why or why not?

2. RESPOND TO THE PROMPT
How does unequal opportunity affect students? And, is it be a deciding factor in their educational success? Why, or why not?
In your essay, be sure to:
Include a thesis statement identifying your position on the topic. To develop your thesis, provide clear topic sentences/sub-claims/reasons throughout your essay.
Support your argument with direct evidence from the supporting text, either as quoted or paraphrased material using in-text MLA citation. Additionally, your evidence should be followed with close analysis/explanation of how the cited material supports your main argument.
Be sure to address and respond to a counter-argument in your essay. In the counter argument, you should incorporate evidence from the opposing ideas (what you disagree with) and respond to the counter argument by either conceding or refuting the point.

Halfway houses are residential facilities for probationers and paroles who require a more structured setting than would be available from living independently (alarid, 2019, pg. 194).

Brandi (post)- Over the years, the corrections system has evolved. Laws now make it possible for certain offenders to complete their sentences in their communities. Probation is one example of a non-residential option. With the mission of probation being to protect the public interest and safety by reducing the incidence and impact of crime, it has the potential to have a positive impact on recidivism rates. (Alarid, 2017) Drug offenders oftentimes also have the ability to participate in non-residential programs. Those newly arrested are offered an opportunity to have their cases put on hold while they attend drug treatment, and upon successful completion charges are dismissed or lowered. Diversion-model drug courts have shown to be effective for reducing recidivism (Belenko et al., 2013)
A growing body of evidence suggests that increased supervision is a key driver of increased recidivism. (Doleac, 2018) Jails, or residential facilities, supervise offenders 100% of the time. There is an unprecedented increase in the number of those incarcerated in the United States during recent decades. (Lipsey & Cullen, 2007) When attempting to find the approach that works in reducing recidivism, it is difficult to pinpoint a truly successful strategy. Nothing may work to overcome or reduce an offender’s tendency to continue to commit crime. (Martinson, 1974)
Hebrews 12:11, No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. (2018)

Diandra (post)- Residential options is a better way to go when prisoners feel they may need a little guidance along the way. With this type of program they are housed in halfway home with others that they could learn from. Halfway houses are all different from state to state and some have pretty good program that allow them to go through phase programs, work release, and even time to spend with love one while still having to report and tested. Watching this weeks video, “Alternatives to corrections: more than just a jail” it explained a lot on how they take our hard earn money to house criminals and not do a detail evaluation to see if those who house just sick and need their meds. Recidivism rate for residential reported was about 13% had committed a new crime which was returned to prison and 37% had completed the program and stayed out of trouble. Halfway houses are residential facilities for probationers and paroles who require a more structured setting than would be available from living independently (Alarid, 2019, pg. 194). Non-residential options are when they are on house arrest and/or wearing a leg monitor. These individuals have the privilege to stay in their own homes but still have to report and get tested for drugs and alcohol. House arrest is an intermediate sanction designed to confine pretrial detainees or convicted offenders to their homes during the hours when they are not at work, attending a treatment program, or visiting a supervising officer (Alarid, 2019, pg. 216). There have been many that have escaped from their monitoring devices and are caught later because they would see that there was no movement or not reporting when told. In a Biblical world can correlate with both by allowing those who want to do right get a chance to show they could change. These individuals need a chance for someone to work with them to see if they are willing to make that change and have another way in life.

This assignment involves tracking the use of your time for one week then analyzing what that allocation of time means as you consider finding a balance between work, other responsibilities, and leisure for now and over the course of a lifetime. Use this link below for more instructions on the assignment.

Assignment – Time Use Analysis – 500 words minimum
Introduction:
To embark on our journey of self-discovery toward a lifestyle of effective leisure, we will need to first examine how we currently spend our time. We take a quantitative approach to enable us to accurately assess what we do with the time we have available to us. We will then examine our findings and search for ways to improve our use of time for not only more effective leisure, but for a more quality life.
Sources:
It is your choice how to calendar your activities. You must turn in a copy of your calendar and total number of hours for each activity category for the week (ex. Sleep=60 hours).
Instructions:
For a week span, keep track of how you use any increment of time over 30 minutes including school and work.
Once completed, examine the use of your time. Add up blocks of time used in similar tasks (i.e. watching TV, exercising, out with friends, etc…). Look for similarities differences, trends, ruts, positives, negatives, overall effects, etc. Did it make you feel better? Worse? Wasteful? Invigorated?
Write your paper based on what you learned about how you used your time and possible ways to improve your use of it throughout life changes. Please see the grading criteria for detail.
