All Day is a behind-the-bars, personal glimpse into the issue of mass incarceration via an unpredictable, insightful, and ultimately hopeful reflection on teaching teens while they await sentencing. Told with equal parts raw honesty and unbridled compassion, All Day recounts a year in Liza Jessie Peterson's classroom at Island Academy, the high school for inmates detained at New York City's Rikers Island. A poet and an actress who had done occasional workshops at the correctional facility, Peterson was ill prepared for a full-time stint teaching in the GED program for the incarcerated youths. For the first time faced with full days teaching the rambunctious, hyper, and fragile adolescent inmates, "Ms. P" comes to understand the essence of her predominantly black and Latino students as she attempts not only to educate them but to instill them with a sense of self-worth long stripped from their lives. "I have quite a spirited group of drama kings, court jesters, flyboy gangsters, tricksters, and wannabe pimps all in my charge, all up in my face, to educate," Peterson discovers. "Corralling this motley crew of bad-news bears to do any lesson is like running boot camp for hyperactive gremlins. I have to be consistent, alert, firm, witty, fearless, and demanding, and, most important, I have to have strong command of the subject I'm teaching." Discipline is always a challenge, with the students spouting street-infused backtalk and often bouncing off the walls with pent-up testosterone. Peterson learns quickly that she must keep the upper hand - set the rules and enforce them with rigor, even when her sympathetic heart starts to waver. Despite their relentless bravura and antics - and in part because of it - Peterson becomes a fierce advocate for her students. She works to instill the young men, mostly black, with a sense of pride about their history and culture, from their African roots to Langston Hughes and Malcolm X. 1. Language: English.

The Impact of a Hispanic/Latino Advocacy Program in a High School ab 48.99 EURO A Cross-Sectional Study
Women substance abusers experience severe cases of attachment dysfunction with a high risk of having destructive emotional and behavioral responses. Two intermixed groups of African-American and Latino women between the ages of 18-50: one group housed in a residential treatment program and a second group in non-clinical aftercare. There was a comparison between two groups of African-American and Latino women in two treatment modalities to determine whether they demonstrated the presence of attachment disorders. Using behavioral measuring instruments and demographic data, the researcher was able to build a composite profile and analyze what these portraits meant for treatment. The goal was to identify these variables and to determine whether contribution to the struggles evinced in the behaviors of women substance abusers. The ultimate goal was to make recommendations for modifying treatment to include attachment disorder counseling.
The primary purpose of this study was to determine the impact of the Hispanic/Latino advocacy program on students in the targeted school. The participants for this study were selected using a census sampling method, of which 38 elected to participate in the study (n = 38). Twenty-six of the participants were members of the Hispanic/Latino advocacy program, while 12 were not members of the program. Cross-sectional design methods were employed in this study to analyze data with regard to the student questionnaire. In addition, interviews were conducted with a sampling of the study participants. The Hispanic/Latino advocacy program appeared to have a positive impact on the study participants based on their perceptions as noted in their responses on the questionnaire and during their interviews. The content analysis of the student interviews revealed several interesting findings as well. Both program participants and non-participants noted that the program was fun and enjoyable, or that it appeared fun and enjoyable. In addition, both program participants and non-participants mentioned the positive social aspects of the advocacy program.
