Assignment – Theoretical Analysis You have approximately one week to complete the following assignment due on February 6 . You must submit the paper at the beginning of the lecture. It is important to understand how people make sense of criminality and assumptions made about the criminal and human nature. This assignment bridges the theoretical readings we have been doing with the everyday by getting you to explore the (mis)perceptions and (mis)conceptions of crime circulating in current discourse. You are to select an article from a major Metro Toronto newspaper that deals with crime, criminals or the criminal justice system from the last two months. Drawing from the material we have covered thus far in the course, your paper will discuss the theoretical assumptions about crime/criminality that the author or others in the article are making. You should also provide a critique of these positions. Please choose wisely when selecting an article. Not all articles will provide a useful basis for analysis so you may have to do some searching and thinking. The assignment must be typed, double spaced, stapled, and approximately 4-6 pages in length. The pages must be numbered. Remember to cite things that are not your idea. Use APA in-text citations for the readings or my lectures. You do not need a reference page if you are only citing material from our class. You are not expected to consult outside research but if you do you must provide a reference page. Please attach a copy of the article that you have chosen to the end of the paper for reference. The penalty for late assignments is 5% per day, including weekends. This penalty is strictly enforced unless proper documentation of illness or hardship is provided (conflicts related to employment or heavy workloads in other courses do not quality). The sociology secretary will NOT accept any assignments for this course. If your assignment is late or you experience printer problems please submit
