Journal of activities:
On Wednesday of this week I’m scheduled to work at the Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall. I’m looking forward to the full-day event. Dr. Angela Haick purchased a one-year license of the Straight-A Guide. That license authorizes teachers who work in Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall to teach our Straight-A Guide Life Skills program. We provided them with a package of our 10 DVD modules, each of which includes 50 separate video lessons. In those lessons, I’m either narrating the way the way that a deliberate, values-based, goal-oriented approach to life changed my life or I’m interviewing another prisoner who talks about his adjustment through prison. Besides the videos, facilitators have access to books I wrote and lesson plans I developed to help them reach their students. On Wednesday I’m spending the entire day inside the Santa Clara Juvenile Hall so that I can teach the facilitators how I would teach the program. I’ll also make presentations to a few different groups of offenders. It’s going to be a busy day and I’m spending the day preparing.
