There are many theories which attempt to explain criminal behavior.
Human behavior is very complicated. There are many theories because no
single theory can explain every type of behavior exhibited. Instead of
focusing on specific criminal behavior, examine why people do not engage
in crime. To prepare for this week's graded activities, please review
the study guide for this week. It will give you a brief summation of the
material for this lesson. This is not a comprehensive list of the
information, so you will still need to read the textbook.
For this week’s individual work, please respond to the following question:
- How would you
explain why a person, who may have some of the individual conditions or
disorders discussed in the chapter, as well as negative family and
community influences, refrains from becoming a violent offender?
This individual work should include the following:
- An in-depth submission that should be free of spelling and grammar errors and is 1-2 pages in length.
- You will be assessed
on the rationale you use in addressing the questions/issue posted, and
how well you justify your argument regarding this issue.
- Your response must
be thought- provoking, have well-developed ideas, and should reference
(per APA) any supporting material from the text, lecture, or other
sources you have used to complete the assignment.
- Please remember that your individual work should be paraphrased. This
means you must write the paper in your own words.You must not simply
find an article and cut and paste it and submit it as your assignment.
- In addition, you
should use scholarly resources to support your claims. Quotations are
acceptable, but should be used sparingly. At least 85% of your paper
should be written in your own words. Citing your work and giving authors
appropriate credit is very important.If an idea is not your own, you
must cite your work – this includes paraphrasing.(Please refer to the
school’s plagiarism policy for more information). All citations and references need to be in APA format.
