With this in mind, when writing your paper you should consider the following:
1. Is the topic relevant to the average person’s life? If so, how did you demonstrate this?
2. Was the paper constructed to grab the reader’s attention and hold it?
3. Was the material presented in a way that would make sense to a person with little knowledge of corrections?
4. Did you give the reader a sense of what can be done about this issue?
5. Did you properly cite all resources?
Below is a list of topics suggestions. The key to this assignment it to provide new information that critiques a current correctional policy or situation. It is not useful to give information about something that you do not want changed, publicized, or addressed in some other manner. This paper should bring to light something you consider an injustice. With that in mind, below is a list of general topics that you can select from. This by no means is a complete list.
Topics:
• Capital Punishment
• Children of Prisoners
• Crack/powder cocaine sentencing disparity
• Drug Policy
• Drug Testing Welfare Recipients
• Felon Disenfranchisement
• Habitual Offender Laws
• Less than Lethal Technologies (Taser and Stun‐Gun use by Law Enforcement)
• Mandatory Minimum Sentences
• Marijuana Laws
• Police Brutality Complaints
• Prison over‐crowding

• Private Prisons
• Racial Over‐representation (adult or juvenile)
• Racial Profiling
• School Discipline
• Sex Offender Registries
• Sex Offender Residence Restrictions
• Women and Mothers in prison
The project should include minimally the following components. You can also include pictures or graphics to make the brief more interesting to a casual reader.

2. Statement of the problem (In paragraph form)
3. Supporting Data (descriptive statistics, testimonials in the form of quotes etc)
