Project 1: Research an Issue in Corrections (15 points)
- to research a specific issue in the field of correctional management
- to critically analyze journal articles that reflect current or recent perspectives on that issue
Use library resources to find two journal articles relating to one single particular issue in correctional management. Critique the quality of each article. Based upon the methodology of the study conducted, do you think the results are reliable and valid?
Summarize the main points of both articles and then compare those main points. Do the articles reach the same conclusion?
Compare each article to the textbook, as well. Does the corresponding section of the textbook seem to agree with the articles? What conclusions can you reach about the level of accordance among these writings?
Analyze the articles and determine, based upon their conclusion(s), whether you believe that the conclusion(s) of the articles agree with your perception of the correctional management issue.
