The Execution Tapes provides students with real life exposure to executions in the state of Georgia by hearing what is taking place during an execution. I have used these recordings in several criminal justice courses (Intro to Corrections and Ethics and Criminal Justice) and have found that they stimulate a great deal of interaction by the students.
