On April 11, 2021, 29 Prison Education Program students began their higher educational journey. This began with a College Readiness course focusing on Chris Wilson’s The Master Plan (2019) and James Clear’s Atomic Habits. Students used Clear’s book to analyze habits that were foundational to Wilson’s success. Students were introduced to norms of academic discussion and provided with a crash course on writing academic essays. Ultimately, students wrote and revised their own Master Plan. The highlight of the college readiness sessions was the guest speakers, especially, returning citizens George Chochos, Terrell Blount, and Chris Wilson. Students then embarked on their first semester of courses which included INST 140, Introduction to Faith, Reason, and Justice, ENGL 100, Fundamentals of Writing, and FAPA 132, Creativity and the Arts Exposed.
