Optional Extra Credit Writing Project

Due Date: April 30, 2016

You are to write a 1500-2000 word analysis on a juvenile justice topic. The topic can be of your choosing. The analysis must include at least three references to scholarly articles that appeared in academic journals or reports from government and/OR public policy organizations (with proper citation - APA Style). Copies of all articles referenced must be submitted with your report.

Your analysis should be narrow in scope (i.e. – the impact of institutionalization) rather than presenting a broad overview and should be presented in the following format:

  1. Introduction to the Issue
  2. Overview of the issue
  3. Discussion of the Issue
  4. Summary/Recommendations

Papers that do not adhere to the requirements listed above will not be considered.
