Answer the following questions: answer in paragraph form of 4-5 sentences for each question (with the exception of #10).

  1. Outline and highlight the major characteristics of the child savers movement, including its origins, foundations, and flaws, and trace them where possible through Falling Back.
  2. Thoroughly describe the therapeutic interventions of Mountain Ridge Academycriminal thinking errors, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and the 12-step model (AA/NA). Highlight one problem of each as the young men experienced them in the facility.
  3. What does Fader mean when she refers to the “therapizing” of youth? How is this problematic given what we know about adolescent brain development in general, and the interventions of young men of color at facilities like Mountain Ridge Academy in particular?
  4. According to Fader, what is the street code and what is her main critique of it? Discuss the contradictions between what they were taught in Mountain Ridge Academy and their lived experiences back in Philadelphia in relation to the street code.
  5. What was the experience of the young men of Falling Back when they returned home in terms of family/fatherhood, employment, and desistance from crime (or persistence in it)?
  6. How does identity operate in the lives of the young men she followed in Falling Back? Be sure to cite at least two specific people from the book and the importance of their identities.
  7. Fully describe the four sentencing philosophies (rehabilitation, deterrence, incapacitation, vengeance) and associate each one with one or more eras of juvenile justice (“Get Tough”, Child Saver, and so on).
  8. Beginning with the death penalty, trace the 21st century legal history of sentencing juveniles, including the practice’s current status (being certain to cite actual Supreme Court cases), and what role brain science contributed to the movement.
  9. What was the central idea of Just Mercy? How does this conflict with the cultural conditions of the “get tough” era of juvenile justice? Discuss two of the people from the book and how they were caught up in the era of getting tough, and how Stevenson sought to redeem them?
  10. Compose a perfectly formed haiku about the Caught podcast?
