Background. (a) Provide background information on a criminological issue or problem, including a brief summary (one to two paragraphs) of the problem, as most of your paper should be devoted to critically assessing how the issue is linked to your theoretical framework, (b) address what you will analyze about the issue, and (c) include at least two to three examples of the problem that will be analyzed through a theoretical lens.(10 points)
Theory. (a) Discuss the relevant theory or theories that pertain to your problem, (b) include a description of the theory/theorist, theory origin and context (e.g., social, political, biological), and (c) address how the theory has been applied to this problem in the past.(30 points)
Application. (a) Apply the fundamentals of the theory to the problem you have chosen to analyze, (b) including how the theory/theories explain the chosen problem, and (c) if the theory or theories fall short of completely explaining the problem. In addition, (d) address how might the theory predict the outcome (or potential outcome) of the chosen problem, and (e) why this theory (or combination of theories) is the best fit for your problem?(60 points)
Critical thinking. The most important objective of this paper is to demonstrate critical thinking by applying one or more theoretical frameworks to a criminological problem. This means that one must go beyond the ‘surface’ of the problem and analyze the relevant issues surrounding the crime problem and how a theory or theories would explain the phenomena.
Research. Students are expected to search online databases for articles that relate to their topic. It is expected that four to five empirical studies, in addition to course readings, from peer reviewed journals or edited volumes, and reputable news sources will be cited. Books from respected
academic scholars are also acceptable. Students should ask for help from the librarian if they are
unable to locate appropriate reference materials.

Grammar/Composition. Do not include lengthy quotes. If a quote is longer than four sentences it must be paraphrased and cited. No “conversational language,” and improper formatting (e.g., not indenting paragraphs, large spacing, misspelling, etc.). In addition, this is a formal paper. Therefore, “first-person” should not be used.
Plagiarism. Be careful to avoid plagiarism. Any information, other than common knowledge, taken from outside sources needs to be cited. Direct quotations should be placed in quotation marks; indent quotations that are at least four lines long. All text that paraphrases the work of someone else should list the source as a citation.
