This project will require you to choose a specific restorative justice project within the United States of America to research, analyze and evaluate.
Final Paper Instructions:
Include an introduction. It must provide a clear statement of your position on the topic.
The paper should synthesize current, relevant research on your topic from at least 5 scholarly sources.
Discuss the implications of possible solutions for the project under consideration.
Finally, offer your conclusions regarding how best to manage the issue (i.e., your informed opinion on the issues raised).
The paper must demonstrate what you have learned about current issues related to restorative justice. Your paper is expected to have depth and offer a thoughtful analysis on the topic. The paper should be based on references to scholarly materials (rather than on introductory textbooks, popular website writings, or musings, for example).That is, support your claims with evidence.
The most common mistakes in writing an essay are (a) simply summarizing the topic and not analyzing it or discussing your views and (b) failing to relate the subject to the broader context of restorative justice, as discussed in class and as found in the readings. Adequately including the broader contexts includes, for example, considering how your research might yield a different approach to restorative justice in the United States.
Your paper must be at 8-10 pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages, which you must include.
Include at least five scholarly sources other than the course textbook.
The paper and preliminary deliverables must be well-written and formatted in conformity with the APA Requirements.
