In this course, you will learn about the ideologies of punishment, or goals of sentencing, and how they influence different professional practices. For this discussion, you will introduce yourself to your classmates and discuss the future of each of the ideologies of punishment.

In your initial post, start by introducing yourself and identifying any professional background you may have in the corrections field.

Next, describe what you think will be the future of one or two of the goals of sentencing. Use the “Goals of Sentencing” resources to support your position.

For your two responses, choose peers who have a different view on the future of a goal of sentencing. Describe the differences in your thinking with their initial posts, and note whether they shared anything that changed your viewpoint.
