Each student submission to the assignment must be a minimum of 2-3 full pages with APA 7th ed. citations and references. Each student submission MUST be uploaded as a Word Doc attachment.
All assignments must be written in an academic tone. Remember, an academic essay is not to be written like you are having a casual conversation with your friends. Do not include slang or foul language unless you are quoting someone.
Lengthy direct quotes are not permitted. Direct quotes, if used, must be limited to a few words. As university students, you are expected to paraphrase and cite. For more information on properly citing sources in your assignments please refer to the APA 7th edition manual. While the assignments are to include an examination of current research of a particular problem, they also need to include the student’s careful and informed analysis of the problem.
Remember each assignment must be submitted as a Word Doc attachment. You must use a 12 point Times New Roman font. Margins will also need to be 1-inch.
Each assignment will need to include the following:
- An APA formatted title page.
- The original question at the top of the essay (serves as the abstract).
- The body of your response must be a minimum of 2-3 pages.
- A reference page formatted to APA 7th edition.
- A minimum of two current, scholarly references per assignment. Web sources can be used, though they should come from credible sources such as government agencies, academics, and private agencies with a strong reputation within the community they serve. Examples of peer-reviewed scholarly based journals include:
Journal of Criminology
Crime and Public Opinion
Journal of Criminal Justice and Public Policy
Justice Quarterly: JQ
Furthermore, do not use encyclopedias, dictionaries, newspapers (unless otherwise permitted), and popular magazines. It is important to remember that this is an undergraduate level class and you are required to submit undergraduate level work, which is backed up by academically credible material. If you have a question about the quality of a potential resource please email your professor.
You are encouraged to use the library to locate the needed material. Additionally, at the bottom of this syllabus is a list of acceptable organizations and groups found on the World Wide Web which you can use to find material for your assignments.
