criminology- i only need the outline

 

Select one of the theories covered in Module 1, Module 2, Module 3, Module 4, or Module 5.

(merton’s anomie/strain theory, social disorganization theory, theory of differential association, social learning theory of crime, or social bond theory)

 Then,  

1. Develop a comprehensive crime prevention strategy based on the assumptions of that theory.

  • Describe the theory and its assumptions
  • Describe the strategy in depth—what will it entail, who is the target population, where will it be implemented, and who will carry it out
  • Discuss the strategy’s feasibility (note, the strategy must be feasible), potential advantages/disadvantages, and originality
  • Discuss why it would work based on the assumptions of the chosen theory (or, if there are aspects of the theory that the strategy does not consider, how might this impact its effectiveness)

OR

2. Modify an already existing strategy based on your chosen theory

    Describe the theory and its assumptions

  • Describe the strategy in depth—what does it entail, who is the target population, where it is implemented, and who carries it out
  • Describe your modification in detail
  • Discuss why a modification is necessary, including supporting research evidence and why it may work based on the assumptions of the chosen theory

OR

3. Evaluate an existing strategy or one that has been previously implemented, based on your chosen theory

    Describe the theory and its assumptions
    Describe the strategy in depth—what does it entail, who is the target population, where it is implemented, and who carries it out

  • Discuss its effectiveness (strategy evaluation) including  supporting research evidence
  • Discuss why it works or does not work based on the assumptions of the chosen theory (or why it might be less effective if the strategy does not consider important aspects of the theory)

 Select one of the theories covered in Module 1, Module 2, Module 3, Module 4, or Module 5, and submit a brief description of your paper topic (maximum 500 words), along with an outline of the paper (major sections and a sentence of what will be included in each section), and a list of at least seven articles that you will use for your paper. 

If you are developing a comprehensive crime prevention strategy, your description must state the theory and provide a brief synopsis of the strategy you are developing.
