Watch the video documentary “Country Boys”, which can be found at this link http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/countryboys/ (there are three parts). Discuss the picture of society, economics, and youth presented in this documentary as it relates to the treatment of juveniles in our society. This documentary provides an account of youths growing up and facing some of the pressures that the criminological theories discuss so please address those theories in your discussion and analysis. More broadly incorporate and apply the theories, concepts, ideas and principles you have learned and studied in Chapters 1 -4. The intent of this major project is, through analysis of the documentary to assess your understanding of the course material. I will do this by evaluating your ability to apply the course material in your analysis.
What is most important is that your analysis be well developed and complete. For the minimalists, I cannot imagine that this can be accomplished well in less than 2 pages. For the verbose, I believe that you should be able to craft a solid analysis in no more than 5 pages. But I could be wrong . . . that being said, I anticipate that most papers submitted should be not less than 2 pages and not more than 5 pages.
