Transcript: 1st Quote PLOT OF BOOT CAMP 2nd Quote A fifteen year old boy named Garrett is picked up by a pair of bounty hunters and sent to a boot camp in upstate New York called Lake Harmony. Upon his arrival, he learns that his parents have sent him to the facility because he refused to stop having intimit relationships his former math teacher, Sabrina, along with other things including staying out too late, and smoking marijuana. Garrett is an incredibly bright and clever kid. His parents are, at most, distant. Garrett does not believe he belongs at Lake Harmony, but he is not allowed to leave until he has admitted his "mistakes" and conforms to the facility's standards of behavior. Staff members are authorized to use "any force necessary" to alter his behavior, including physical and psychological abuse. After attempting to talk his way out with no success, he realizes escape is his only option. He escapes Lake Harmony with two friends, Pauly and Sarah, after using chemicals to start a fire. They reach the Canadian border to escape from legal recapture, and their pursuers' boat begins to sink. He lets his friends out on the other side of the border, and then rescues his pursuers, who bring him back to Lake Harmony, where he is beaten senseless repeatedly. The director announces that all campers are being demoted, based on the privilege system they use, and to blame Garrett, so he is beaten yet again by the campers. Ultimately, he is "reformed". He begins to believe in the treatment, feeling no remorse when those around him are abused. When his mother comes to pick him up with an investigator, the investigator asks if he was beaten. He breaks down and says that he was, but is still scared of what Lake Harmony would do to him. This forced him to say that he deserved all of it, since the director was standing there. It is possible that these events caused him to suffer from PTSD, as he appears to suffer from a mental breakdown when admitting what has occurred. "The potholes are getting bigger, and we toss and heave like a boat on rough seas"(Strasser 4) Analysis: The ride is very bumpy as being compared to a boat on rough seas using a simile. "The chatter of crickets is almost as loud as traffic on a city street"(Strasser 5). Analysis: There are so many crickets that make it feel like a busy street in the middle of a city. Figurative language/plot "The air is cool and smells like pine"(Strasser 5). Analysis: The air is very chilly and smells very pleasant. BOOT CAMP Figurative language plays a central role in the piece of literature. It makes the publication realistic. It blends the transitions throughout the bestseller.

Transcript: After arriving at the book camp and being there for the first few months, Garrett received very harsh discipline. He could not handle the authorities in the camp, causing his mind to go spiral. He was very lost in what to do in order to be in good hands with the staff to graduate as soon as possible. Falling Action Garrett was a very successful student, but like any other teenager he had his bad habits. His parents were wealthy people and they wanted everything in Garrett to be perfect. Exposition Author: Todd Strasser Characters: Garrett, Pauly, Sarah, Joe Resolution Garrett soon meets Pauly and Sabrina. Pauly has been there for about 3 years and Sabrina for almost about 4 years, the longest students have managed to stay in that camp. They are tired, exhausted, and all beat up emotionally and physically. They are desperate to find a way out....without graduating. So they plan an escape to go to Canada but they need Garrett. Garrett follows along, and their plan goes well and manage to escape. Garrett finds the perfect way to cross. He sees boats and comes with the audacity idea of taking them, but suddenly he sees two people hes recognized from the camp. What do you think will happen next? Garrett and his teacher, Sabrina, fall in love. They get very close with each other and created a relationship that Garrett parents did not think was appropriate. Garrett left no options for his parents but to send him to a boot camp called, Lake Harmony. A camp in which he was not able to leave until he was very well "disciplined", but according to the camp thatd take at least 6 months. He was "kidnapped" and escorted there. Resolution Climax They have made it to the border of Canada but they need to go through a checkpoint in order to pass the border. The only problem is they are in "inmate" looking clothe with no type of belongings. They try to find a way pass the checkpoint but Sabrina and Paly are both hurt and Garrett is left with no choice but to find a way himself. Boot Camp Rising Action

Transcript: NIJ evaluation studies consistently showed that boot camps did not reduce recidivism regardless of whether the camps were for adults or juveniles or whether they were first-generation programs with a heavy military emphasis or later programs with more emphasis on treatment. Most of the research suggested that the limitations of boot camps prevented them from reducing recidivism or prison populations, even as they achieved other goals. "Boot camps were almost universally successful in improving inmates’ attitudes and behavior during the course of the program; they also produced safer environments for staff and residents, presumably due to their highly structured atmosphere and activities." "Anxiety and depression declined to a greater degree among juveniles in boot camps than among those in comparison facilities. Dysfunctional impulsivity (the inability to control one’s impulses) increased among youths in comparison facilities but decreased among boot camp participants. Social attitudes improved among youths in boot camps, but worsened among those in comparison facilities." The establishment of Boot Camps had 3 Goals in mind when implemented. This could be met by making time served applicable while in Boot Camp. Hoped to change their character through the program so they won't repeat the same crimes. By looking at the history, policy implementation, goals, and evaluation of boot camps it is easy to see why the popularity of it has decreased. From what we've learned, even the greatest policy (when outsourced to a larger area) can become distorted and ineffective. That is exactly why there are only so many boot camps throughout the U.S. While the policy was innovative, it failed to meet the very goals it had intended to meet. Boot camps failed at clearly lowering recitivism and had mixed results in saving any money. However, it did have merit in creative a more positive approach to rehabilitation than the standard detainment facility. Knowing this we can conclude that the development of boot camps was best kept at a smaller level, and was effective in it's initial inception as opposed to it's current incarnation. Reduce population in prisons. Who ended up in these camps? Have no known mental disorder or retardation that would prevent participation in a program that requires intensive interaction and strenuous physical activity." Targeted young and juvenile offenders. Initially they gave options to Adults to go as well but it was not until later that this could serve as time well served. First time felons with no priors. The bread and butter of these facilities were young delinquents. In policy maker's view, the best way to battle delinquency was to appeal to the nature and lifestyle of these kids. Straighten them out so to speak. Impact of Policy "First-generation camps stressed discipline,physical activity, drill and ceremony,manual labor, and other activities that ensure that participants have little, if any, free time." "Camps were expected to reduce recidivism by changing inmates’ attitudes, values, and behaviors and by addressing factors that increase the likelihood of returning to prison (such as lack of job skills, addiction, and inability to control anger)." According to the study by the U.S Department of Justice, there is a view that the use of Boot Camps would in fact free up beds within facilities. Doing so would in theory reduce costs. However the study also points out that the criteria to get admitted into these facilities was too strict for any offender to be admitted. This drastically reduces it's usefullness. Have no known physical limitation that would exclude strenuous labor and physical activity Sources Policy Evaluation "In the mid-1990s, the number of boot camps declined. By 2000, nearly onethird of State prison boot camps had closed—only 51 camps remained. The average daily population in State boot camps also dropped more than 30 percent." "Reduced length of stay was expected to reduce costs." The absence of a strong underlying treatment model. They were not in there long enough to make a difference. 90 to 100 Days was not long enough to facilitate change. Improving behavior: A Success Story Have no known contagious or communicable disease History Conclusion Reduce Prison Population Have no previous period of incarceration in an adult penal institution Reduce recidivism In the late 80's early 90's several policies were implemented to reform corrections. Boot Camp was just one idea created in house (Georgia!) but it diffused to other states as some policies do. Was this really effective? Not exactly. To understand why Boot Camps were created as an alternative to traditional corrections we must look at the why they were created and the goals that led to the implementation of policy. Candidates for boot camp must: They were intended first to give juvenile and adult offenders an alternative to incarceration. Camps were to resemble army training compounds. Ex. Army Fatigues, Haircuts. First
Transcript: Camp for Kids Breaking Rules:" Analyzing the Behavior Provided from Structured Boot Camps" By: Jordan Whitaker Jennifer Hercules Mentor: Shawn Carlos Royal M.A. Boot camps are shock incarceration programs grounded on military techniques. Adolescents are forced to participate in a rigidly structured routine designed to discipline their behavior. Probation Under lenient supervision by a probation officer. Required to refrain from possession of firearms and drug use. Required to report to an officer biweekly. Does this approach actually work? Does the obedience provided from a structured boot camp really affect a child's behavior? Literature Review The intense physical activity and healthy atmosphere of the camps provide an advantage backdrop for therapy education (Clark and Aziz 1996). "According to advocates of shock incarceration, military discipline may be the key to providing an environment that supports rehabilitation." (Caldas, 1990) According to Izzo and Rose, 1990, evidence indicates that programs based on useful theory (i.e. boot camp) are five times more effective than those lacking an underlying framework (i.e. probation). Hypothesis Adolescents involved in some sort of boot camp program will have a better educational outcome and be more successful in forming a more beneficial lifestyle, compared to that of adolescents on probation. Methods Results: Future Research: Look into adults who successfully completed the program of both boot camp and/or probation. Rates of recidivism of former cadets and adolescents in probation. Limitations: Access to a broader variety of participants. Access to former adolescents who have successfully completed the programs. Gaylene, Styve J., MacKenzie L. Doris, Gover R.

Transcript: Symbol Bibliography Todd Strasser. Todd Strasser grew up in New York City in the 1960's.

He then discovered that he wanted to be a writer and traveled around the world writing down his experiences. Todd took some college courses on writing. Today he writes all sorts of things including, newspaper or magazine articles, TV show scripts, and novels for young people. Lake Harmony is a symbol for oppression and wrongful judgment. In Lake Harmony even innocent teens can be stripped of their freedoms and dignity. Teenagers who disappoint their parents are sent there from offenses ranging from not being religious to drug abuse. and worse. So while many of the campers do deserve and need change some do not. The campers who did not make the football team or believe in the same religion are treated just as harshly as the others and cannot handle all of the physical and mental torment. All campers have no freedoms at all and are treated worse than people in prison. Recommendation "Bibliography Todd Strasser." Scholastic Teachers. N.p., n.d. Web. 06 Mar. 2014. Climax The Main conflict in the novel is person vs self. Garrett has to fight the urge not to give in to Lake Harmony's policies and beliefs. He also has to decide whether to escape to Canada with his friends or to save his two pursuers from drowning. Boot Camp By: Todd Strasser Prezi By: Christian Niehoff Garrett is a teenager who lives in New York and comes from a wealthy family. He is very smart and clever and also large in stature. His parents sent him to Lake Harmony because he smoked, stayed out late, and dated a girl that his parents disapproved of. He ignored his parents and when he continued to do these things he was sent to boot camp. Garrett tried to use his cleverness to get out of the program as fast as he could without changing but had no success. Garrett would stand up for his friends at the camp who couldn't defend themselves and put other people first. When Garrett and his two companions, Sarah and Pauly, escaped from the camp he proved to be brave. Also he gave up his freedom so that he could save the lives of his pursuers. Theme I am not really sure how I feel about this book. I would probably not recommend it because it is really kind of boring. Also I was looking forward to reading about the campers' escape but that part happened really fast and not much happened. Also the ending seemed like the author just came up with a quick excuse to end the novel. Overall I felt that the book was rushed and too much time was spent on the boring parts and not enough was spent on the exciting things. Garrett Durham The theme of the novel is to put others before yourself because Garrett decided to save his pursuers' lives instead of becoming free from the oppression of Lake Harmony. He knew that if he returned to camp he would be beaten until he was at the verge of death but did so anyway. If Garrett would have left the bounty hunters to die then he would be just as bad as the people at Lake Harmony. Rising Action Exposition Characters: Garrett, Pauly, Sarah Setting: Lake Harmony Info: Lake Harmony is a boot camp where "bad" teens are sent. The climax occurs when Garrett has to decide if he will Escape to Canada or save his pursuers. He then decided that human lives are worth more than his freedom and went back to save his pursuers.
