Your Information Competency Project
The class will be divided into small groups. Each group will be given one of three topics:
- Media Bias in Criminal Justice
- Discretion of Criminal Justice Professionals
- Restorative Justice
For each topic area there will be either 2 or 3 groups created (depending upon class size). Each group will be required to use a certain type of “research” (newspapers/popular magazines OR trade journals OR scholarly journals) to create a 5 minute presentation on their topic (details explained in class). Additionally each individual will produce a 1.5- 2 page paper using APA in-text citations and a Work Cited page based upon the group research.
Each group will need 3 sources of research and will need to use at least 4 in-text citations in the paper.
