There are two distinct strands in the literature on gambling: one that focuses on how to play and win the various games of chance and one that focuses on gambling compulsion and addiction. Gambling and Gender forges a new direction, studying gambling as more communication than compulsion, more recreation than deviance, more sociology than psychology. Within that framework it seeks to explore several aspects of gender: How do the gambling behaviors of men and women differ? How have women adapted to and/or changed the historically male dominance of the gambling arena? What gambling activities have women claimed as their own and used to develop uniquely female relationships? How have recent trends in technology and mass media changed the ways in which men and women claim – or reject – their gender identities? The authors use a variety of research strategies, including content analysis, survey research, interviews, and participative observation, to shed new light on this fascinating subject and to suggest ways to explore it further.

Your knowledge of police ethics or lack thereof determines your experience! Every sworn officer knows, or at least should know by now, that they live in a glass jar. Friends, relatives, neighbors, and strangers watch every move that law enforcement officers make both on and off duty. The fact is that the public scrutinizes police officers more than most other professions either because theyre cynical or hope to catch them screwing up or because theyre hopeful and are looking for a good example and a strong leader. In either case, its up to the officer or civil service worker to be above reproach in both his public and private life. The major difference between most sworn officers or civil service workers and extremely successful officers or civil workers is the gap between what they know and what they do. Both groups have about the same knowledge base. Extremely successful officers and civil service works are just better at doing what they should be doing. I worked as a special deputy sheriff early in my young life, and there were times I lost my temper to the point where I wanted to cross ethical boundaries. I wrote this powerful, high-impact workbook to help fellow officers by educating them in police ethics so that they wont become a victim of poor decision-making, placed in the limelight of shame, and made the poster child for law enforcement ethical dilemmas. Using this ethical workbook in your organization will show your employees youre serious about their professional growth and achieving critical ethical goals and objectives. This ethics in law enforcement workbook allows you to train entire police departments for less than the cost of traditional public seminars or other training options. Give your officers and civil service workers the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to meet tough workplace challenges while on patrol or while working in a civil service position. This workbook will help them realize their full potential and perform at their peak and provide them with the tips and techniques they will need to stay calm and productive in any situation.

Abstract of A GUIDE FOR CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING IN ADULT PRISON EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS by Michael Gray Brief Review of Literature Increasingly, prison education programs are multicultural environments where teachers must relate their content to inmates of varying cultures, and backgrounds. In contrast, engagement in learning is the visible outcome of motivation, and redirecting energy in the pursuit of a goal (Feistritzer & Haar, 2008). Teachers that do not understand culturally responsive teaching or have a lack of training in culturally responsive teaching may cause the students feelings of embarrassment (Feistritzer & Haar). Some people enjoy sharing personal information with others who are relatively unknown to them when teaching adults (Galbraith, 2004). Statement of Purpose The purpose of this project is to develop a handbook for the educational departments of correctional agencies in the process of in-service training for their teaching staff. The development of this project focuses on three main areas; incompatibilities in adult prison educational programs, culturally responsive teaching in adult prison educational programs, and learning theory in adult prison educational programs. Methodology The data for this study was collected and analyzed from adults currently in prison educational programs. Teachers rely on the correctional staff to guide them in styles of communication and methods for solving problems in their classroom (Cartledge, Gardner & Ford, 2009). Teachers must have a firm understanding of different cultures, gender gaps, and how different ethnic groups learn, will help the teacher become successful when they try new teaching strategies (Cartledge et al.). Conclusions and Recommendations Studies have shown that there is considerable need for education in adult prisons, and political bureaucracy is disabling prison educational programs by suffocating programs with economical demise (Campbell, 2005). Teachers become reluctant to pay the extra cost to learn andragogy teaching practices; therefore teachers are unprepared to deal with adult students that practice and demonstrate criminal behavior. Improving teachers ability to teach is obviously crucial to school success, and that is the purpose of professional development (Dipaola & Hoy, 2006).

In her book Teaching to Diversity, Dr. Jennifer Katz synthesizes the research, and 16 years experience of teaching in inclusive classrooms and schools, to provide answers to several questions: How do I make inclusion work for ALL students? What are the foundational best practices of a truly inclusive learning community? How does one create such a community? The author pulls together, in an organized way, a three-block model of universal design for learning (UDL) and suggests a step-by-step approach for implementing it. This framework includes: Block One, Social and Emotional Learning: details ways to build compassionate learning communities (K-12) in which all students feel safe and valued, and develop a positive self-concept, sense of belonging, and respect for diverse others. Block Two, Inclusive Instructional Practice: includes a framework for planning units from K-12, and explains instructional and management practices for teaching, assessing, grading, and reporting in UDL Classrooms. Block Three, Systems and Structures: suggests strategies for creating inclusive learning communities, and explores ways in which resource teachers, student services personnel, and school administrators can support and create socially and academically inclusive schools and classrooms. The three-block model of UDL can empower educators with the knowledge, skills, and confidence required to teach diverse learners in the same classroom--including those who have previously been excluded. Ultimately, it is about creating classrooms and schools that heal by teaching to the heart, mind, and spirit of every student.
