There are 3 parts. Please review the requirement for each part
Part 1 overview of the research project and an annotated bibliography. In the overview section, you must identify the criminal justice reform that will serve as the basis for your research project and briefly describe what specific areas or topics will be included as part of the examination of this criminal justice reform. The overview section should be no more than two pages in length.
The annotated bibliography must include a minimum of six scholarly resources that you plan to utilize in the research paper. Each resource must be formatted per APA (6th ed.) guidelines and include a brief description of the information included in the resource and why it is relevant to the research project.
Part 1 of the Final Project should be approximately 4–5 pages in length (2 page overview, with the rest dedicated to the annotated bibliography).
Your annotated bibliography should:
• Summarize the sources: What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say? • The annotations for each source should be written in paragraph form. Do not exceed 300 words per annotation. Try to be concise and succinct. • Be formatted per APA (6th ed.) guidelines
Part II Paper Segment
Criminal Justice Reform History
Part 2 of the Final Project includes the section of the research paper focused upon the history of the criminal justice reform. In this section, you will (1) identify and discuss the issues that are included with the selected reform, (2) provide a narrative timeline describing how the reform has evolved over the past 50 years, and (3) briefly discuss the relevance of this criminal justice reform to public policy making, specifically within the field of criminal justice.
Please note that you are only briefly discussing the connection between the selected criminal justice reform area and public policy making in the last part of this section of Part 2 of the project.
Part 2 of the Final Project should be 5 – 7 pages in length
(3) Evaluation of the role public opinion and public policy played in the evolution of the selected criminal justice reform. Information presented in each section should be supported with scholarly resources.
The final section of the paper, Section 3 – Evaluation, will be created and submitted with the Final Project.
While the level of detail in each section of the Final Project will vary, it is anticipated that Section 3 will be approximately 3–5 pages in length. This should result in a Final Project (Parts 1, 2, and 3) that is 10–14 pages in length
