  • Vocabulary In Th Tunnell's The Treasure Box

    Through the clever use of vocabulary Wild (2013) engages the reader from the beginning. It is a story retold, of people trying to escape the brutality of war, forever remaining hopeful, and moving on to a better life. However, as Tunnell (2008) notes, it is not the subject or the characters that dictate if a book is well written, but the manner in which it is written. The choice of vocabulary can either tell the story to the reader, or show them, by immersing them into the story. The latter shows that the author has given consideration to the audience and paid respect to them (Tunnell, 2008). Wild (2013) has achieved this with the beautiful book “The Treasure Box”. The sentence “It is rarer than rubies, more splendid than silver, greater than gold” (parra. 6) describes the only book undamaged by the library fire. Wild could have told us “This book is important,” but she shows just how special this book is by comparing it to precious jewels. The reader is left with a sense that the book must be saved, it is important, and it holds treasures worth preserving. Wild (2013) exposes readers to alternative and interesting word choices. “Charred”, “trudged”, “ached” “ancient” and “rarer” are used as opposed to “burnt”, “walked”, “hurt”, “old”, and “few”. Tunnell (2008) states that providing these alternatives expands a child’s vocabulary. Using precise vocabulary evokes feelings and you can imagine an “ancient tree” or the hardships faced by the people fleeing, with words like…

  • Incapacitation Or Deterrence?

    Abstract: Incapacitation or Deterrence? Is it really a matter of one or the other or is it the matter of properly using both stratagem for the efficient, and effective management of the criminal justice system in America? Furthermore, in a decade where the penal system seems to focus on strictly punishment I seek to discover if there is a better way. According to Todd Clear and Natasha Frost (2014) by the year 2002 the penal system of the United States had exceeded two million…

  • Risk Of Recidivism

    A caveat to all the aforementioned measures of recidivism is that risk of recidivism is not equal across offenders. Offenders are a heterogeneous population, characterised by diverse individual, social, and contextual risks that impact their rates of reoffending. While some offenders present very high risks of reoffending, others present very low risks of reoffending. Consequently, the profile of offenders in contact with the corrections system necessarily influences recidivism (Bonta, Rugge,…

  • Selective Incapacitation Research Paper

    . Selective Incapacitation Selective incapacitation reduces crime by protecting society from high-risk criminals by individualising sentences based on the predicted likelihood of committing further criminal activity (Vollaard, 2013). Through this method, longer sentences and sanctions are given to individuals who are considered to be high-risk offenders. It is an ideal method used for sex offenders who are at risk of repeating offences. There are some strengths and weaknesses when using this…

  • Incapacitation Vs Rehabilitation Essay

    reasons behind prisons are retribution, deterrence, rehabilitation, or incapacitation (Gilmore 2007:14). Retribution and deterrence are closely linked. Retribution keeps functions to stop previous convicts from committing the crime again, based on their knowledge of the prison, and deterrence stops people from committing the crime in the first place because of stories told by released inmates. This is how these two concepts are intended to work, but statistics have not been favorable to this…

  • Community Control Programs

    As a result, it is unknown whether incapacitation works better than another strategy, such as a rehabilitation program. Instead, incapacitation effects compare an offender’s stay in prison to simply being free with no control. Thus, the research about incapacitation effects is inherently flawed, for it fails to reveal whether it works better then other possible intervention techniques (Cullen & Jonson, 2017). There is little reason to doubt whether an incapacitation effects exists, but whether…

  • Example Of Tertiary Prevention

    prevent from re-offending. Tertiary prevention reduces the recidivism rate and insures that appropriate steps are taken so that the victim is not re-victimized. In the United States the primary form of tertiary prevention is incapacitation. Tertiary prevention does not stop criminals from committing crimes after their release but protects the population from victimization of criminals. Specific deterrence is achieved by instilling fear into individuals that are being punished with the…
