From the late eighteenth century through the late twentieth century, US corrections progressed through nine significant eras of development:

  • The Penitentiary Era
  • The Mass (Congregate) Prison Era
  • The Reformatory Era
  • The Industrial Era
  • The Punitive Era
  • The Treatment Era
  • The Community-Based Era
  • The Warehousing Era
  • The Just Deserts Era

These eras of development provide a blueprint of US corrections development.

The needs and perceptions of society, merged with the ideology of offender supervision, resulted in drastically different management styles with time. The lessons learned by this progression provided the foundation of adult prison design and management utilized today.


Prepare a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that discusses the stages of prison development in the United States. Consider the following questions:

  • How has each era affected modern adult corrections management?
  • What are the positive and negative influences of each era on the progression of adult corrections management in the United States?

Your presentation should include at least 12 slides (Excluding Title and reference Slides), one of which will identify sources used to prepare the presentation. The Notes section of each slide should include a 100-word explanation of the elements of the era discussed on the slide.

Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Include citations in the text and at the end of the document in APA format.



Note: Each of the 12 slides 100-word explanation of the elements 

Remeber the 7 X 7 Rule:

  •     7 words per sentence in the slide
  •     7 sentences per slide, for all the sides

Format In APA , and include ctations with references
