Prior to attempting this week’s forum read the week one’s lesson located in the lessons area of the classroom for this week. Students are to select a topic that will allow them to examine a specific issue in the field of Criminal Justice. For this week’s forum students are to post and discuss two to three ideas of current issues and trends in Criminal Justice they feel may be an interesting topic to tackle for this course. Students are to also construct an argumentative thesis statement on the issues selected and discuss them.
Each students answer to the question should be between 250-500 words. A minimum of two references need to be used in the development of your answer. You also need to provide two (2) feedback posts to your peers. Each feedback post needs to be 125 words or more, and should include information that helps to enhance the discussion on the topic. Do not include statements such as great work, or excellent post. Try to include info that is challenging and respectful and that will stimulate debate. Also, be mindful of including references and citations whenever citing facts to support your position. APA 6th edition citations and references must be used always!
Also,do some critical thinking and write your thesis statement down in one sentence. Your thesis statement is like a declaration of your hypothesis. The main portion of your paper will consist of arguments to support and defend this hypothesis or theory.
