ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the lesson "Succeeding on the Outside" prepared by the author. The objectives of the lesson are that students will: Observe how ex-offenders used entry level jobs as stepping stones; Understand the importance of being prepared for running into old friends; identify positive and negative behaviors that affect success; Realize that setting goals and planning for success can lead to success. The Ohio Department of Youth Services has mandated that all inmates within a few weeks of release, must complete 12 hours of classes on Goal Setting Work and Self Management Skills, Resume Preparation and Job Search, Interviewing and Job Retention. students found it helpful to discover what they would be looking for in the videos. Watching the behaviors of ex-offenders, and listening to their reports of how those behaviors influenced their success was quite meaningful to the author's class of inmates who are within weeks of being released from prison.
