CRJ335 – Prisoner’s Rights

Research Topic Paper

Due: 11:59 pm Sunday of Unit 1.

Submit a paper identifying the specific issue you are choosing to do your Research Paper on
and why you chose this area, be specific.

The research paper due for this course is to pick a current issue related to the rights of people
under correctional supervision or custody. You will need to discuss both sides of the issue and
then you must pick one side of the issue that you agree with and support your decision.

Remember, you are only identifying the specific issue that you will be writing your research
paper on and why you selected that specific issue. The complete research paper is not due until
Unit 7.

The paper shall be in APA format, typed in 12pt. font Times New Roman, and shall not have
been turned in previously to any other instructor for any other course or assignment. Paper
length is 1-2 pages not to include the cover page or bibliography. It is to be submitted as
a Microsoft Word Document. The research paper shall be an individual effort and not a group
project. Since criminal justice is a social science, the writing requirements of the American
Psychological Association, otherwise known as the APA, will be in effect for the research paper
assignment.

Please refer to page two for the grading rubric

Students: Be sure to read the criteria, by which your paper will be evaluated, before
you write, and again after you write.
