For this unit paper, I want you to pick one interesting topic from chapters 1-3 chapter topic and after a bit of extra research (you must utilize at least 2 outside sources), I want you to write a 3 page paper that discusses one aspect of the general topic you picked.
For instance, if you picked the criminal justice system in Texas, you can pick the death penalty in Texas and discuss the pros and cons of it (again using at least 2 outside resources not including your text).
This paper should be typed, double-spaced with normal margins and 12-point font (Arial or Times New Roman). Papers will be graded on the following standards:
-Use of language and writing;
-Organization of paper and format of essay;
-Spelling, grammar, and punctuation;
-Consistency and use of logic;
-Use of literature;
-Originality of research.
The text portion of your paper should be 3-4 pages in length. Please remember to cite sources for statements of fact or any statement not attributable to you, wherever necessary. APA is the only accepted citation and formatting method.
You must have a reference page (not included in your 3-4 pages of text).
