Rising Hope, Inc offers a post secondary eduction in ministry and human services to incarcerated men. Each man has received his high school diploma or achieved his GED. This is a 2 semester program with classes offered 5 nights per week for 15 weeks. Our students are well motivated, eager to learn. Usual class size is about 12-15 students. We have an established curriculum and syllabi for each course which of course can be modified to some degree. Our instructors need to have a Master's degree.
Instruction is offered via classroom lectures accompanied by readings, essays, quizzes, homework, vocabulary assignments, a mid-term exam, research paper, film critique and final exam. Major topics include: the writing process, strategies for developing academic paragraphs and essays, and key aspects of grammar, punctuation, and the mechanics of writing. Practice in refining writing skills will be provided. In this course, we will cover three major areas: writing critically and effectively, grammar and mechanics of written English, including the organization and development of paragraphs and essays, and documenting and citing sources.
We have been in existence for 24 years. Many of our teachers who have taught in a variety of settings attest to Rising Hope students as the most engaged students they have ever had.
