CJBS-415 WRITING ASSIGNMENT HANDOUT
Your assignment is to write a research paper based on one of the articles in the Jacoby book Classics of Criminology. You should choose an article from the book and write a paper about the topic of the article. For example, if you picked Merton’s social structure and anomie, your paper should focus on both Merton’s work and anomie theory in general. Your paper should include a discussion of the theoretical background of the research and an assessment of the current research in this area.
The paper should be type written and between eight and twelve pages in length using a standard 12 point font size. The page length does not count the title or reference page. Use the citation format of the American Psychological Association (APA) and include no less than seven sources. Remember, that in general, textbooks and scientific journal articles are better sources than newspapers and television. I expect that a person reading your paper would come away with a good understanding of the research contained in the article. So include information about the main ideas, assumptions of the author, and the research of other scholars that are relevant to your topic. This paper is due on 07-23-21. Good luck.
