Be sure to review the grading rubric before starting this assignment. The contents of the paper should be tailored to fulfilling the requirements set out in the grading rubric.
Below are some tips and a resource that will help all of you on the writing assignments.
The main purpose of the writing assignments is to demonstrate that you understand the theories well enough to apply them to real world situations. For the “Explanation of the crime from two different perspectives purported by two different theories of crime” part of the grading rubric, I would suggest that you choose two different theories that you have read about and are applicable to the article that is given for the respective writing assignment.
Next, I would advise using the following format for each theory: state the theory, provide a definition, and apply the tenets of the theory to the case/situation in the article. Follow the same format for the second theory that you choose.
