The Juvenile Corrections System and the Shortcomings

The sequence of activities for creating your final paper that we recommended you complete last week is repeated here. Be prepared to edit, rearrange, and rewrite your paper multiple times. This will enable your instructor to prepare your final paper for use in both final course grading and competency scoring within the window provided by the College.

 

Instructions: Begin by organizing your work in the order of the scaffolded assignments: Research Proposal, Literature Review, Diversity Perspectives, and Ethical Perspectives. Add to those your notes used in your oral presentation as well as the feedback and suggestions provided by faculty and classmates. Make sure you have APA citation information for all the additional scholarly sources you’ve gathered since your initial Literature Review.

 

Create a new document to use as the draft for your final paper. You cannot use the work you submitted earlier for review, nor can you simply insert minor changes to the original papers. Each section must be thoroughly revised and rewritten to incorporate the feedback provided as well as additional scholarly sources necessary to fully support your thesis.

Begin your document by drafting a working thesis for your final paper. Your Research Proposal should be helpful here. Be prepared to edit after you’ve completed all sections of the final paper. Leave the introduction section blank for now.

 

  1. Copy/paste in your revised/rewritten Literature Review. Your revised work must present a comprehensive overview of the contemporary research studies and other recent scholarly articles examining the topic approved by your instructor (a minimum of 7-9 relevant scholarly articles in this final version). If appropriate, your review may also include a limited number of discipline-specific reports from industry or government agencies. When using industry-related sources, be mindful of the potential bias involved and examine that in your review. Your revised work must reflect clear evidence of improved research, writing, analysis, synthesis, and argument development skills.

    Draft transition paragraphs to move the reader from your Literature Review to your Diversity Perspectives section. In this section you must state the problem you are examining and the significance of this problem. Include additional scholarly sources as needed with appropriate citations. Your Diversity section should use a combination of sources from your Literature Review and other peer-reviewed sources specific to the diversity issues.

  2. Copy/paste in your revised/rewritten Diversity Perspectives paper. When revising your work, be sure you discuss the different groups associated with the problem, paying particular attention to the dominant as well as the disenfranchised and vulnerable groups.

    Use Hofstede’s cultural dimensions theory when analyzing diverse perspectives, and be sure you’ve addressed such issues as ingroup favoritism, intergroup bias, societal norms, etc.

    At the end of this section, you must summarize who’s involved and the most significant issues causing conflict between groups. Your work must reflect clear evidence of improved research, writing, analysis, synthesis, and argument development skills.

    Draft transition paragraphs to move the reader from your Diversity Perspectives section to your Ethical Perspectives section. Include additional scholarly sources as needed with appropriate citations. Your Ethical Perspectives section should use a combination of sources from your Literature Review and other peer-reviewed sources specific to the ethical issues.

  3. Copy/paste in your revised/rewritten Ethical Perspectives paper. Identify and analyze examples of actions, practices, and policies affecting the vulnerable and disenfranchised groups identified in your Diversity Perspectives section. Consider the ethical underpinnings of these actions, practices, and policies. Describe likely outcomes, and weigh the consequences of such actions. Evaluate evidence of social responsibility within the context of social justice, economic justice, or distributive justice theory.

    At the end of this section, you will summarize who’s affected by the problem, key differences found in your examination of multiple perspectives, and the significance of such differences.  Your revised work must reflect clear evidence of improved research, writing, analysis, synthesis, and argument development skills.

  4. Draft transition paragraphs to move the reader from your Ethical Perspectives section to your final section. Include additional scholarly sources as needed with appropriate citations.
  5. Advocate the most equitable solution to the problem examined. Draw upon the scholarly sources in your previous sections to substantiate your position. If necessary, provide further support with government reports and studies as well as non-government organizational reports and studies.
  6. Based on the work you’ve developed thus far, review and revise your working thesis.
  7. Draft a comprehensive introduction for your paper.
  8. Draft a conclusion that fully wraps up all themes and ideas presented in all the sections.
  9. Draft an abstract that provides a preview of the entire paper in about a paragraph.
  10. Build your comprehensive reference list in correct APA format.

The result of these steps should be a very rough draft of your final paper. As you further revise and refine it, keep in mind this basic framework that your final submission should follow:

  • Abstract
  • Introduction (250-300 words)
    • Provide overview with significance of the issue related to field of study
