   Instructions

 

In week 4, you learned about the importance of   theory, the various theoretical perspectives and the ways in which theory   help guide research in regards to crime and criminal behavior.

To put this assignment into context, I want you to think   about how Lombroso thought one could identify a criminal.  He said that   criminals had similar facial features.  If that was the case you would   be able to look at someone and know if they were a criminal!  Social   theories infer that perhaps it is the social structures around us that   encourage criminality. Look around your city- what structures do you think   may match up to something you have learned about this week in terms of   theory?  These are just two small examples to put this assignment into   context for you. The idea is to learn about the theories, then critically   think about how can one "show" the theory without providing written   explanation for their chosen image.  

Directions: With the readings week 4 in mind, please   do the following:

1.  Choose a theoretical perspective (I.e.,   biological, psychological sociological)

2.  Look through media images (this can be   cartoons, magazines, newspapers, internet stories, etc...) and select 10   images that you think depict your chosen theory without written explanation.

3. Provide a one paragraph statement of your theory,   what kinds of behavior it explains and how it is depicted through images. Be   sure to use resources to support your answer.

4.  You will copy and paste your images into a   word document, along with your paragraph.  You do not need to cite where   you got your images, but you do need to cite any information you have in   number 3.

Format Directions:

Typed, 12 point font, double spaced

APA format style (Cover page, in text citations and   references)
