    Writing Tips:  
    Below are some tips and a resource that will help all of you on the writing assignments.  
    1. Use the grading rubric as an outline guide for your paper.  
    2. The main purpose of the writing assignments is to demonstrate that you understand the
    theories well enough to apply them to real world situations. For the “Explanation of the
    crime from two different perspectives purported by two different theories of crime” part of
    the grading rubric, I would suggest that you choose two different theories that you have read
    about and are applicable to the article that is given for the respective writing assignment.
    Next, I would advise using the following format for each theory: state the theory, provide a
    definition, and apply the tenets of the theory to the case/situation in the article. Follow the
    same format for the second theory that you choose.  
    3. To properly organize the paper, I would use headings and subheadings that have content
    that is proportionate to the points awarded in the grading rubric. For example, if something
    is worth a total of 3 points out of 7, it should have the most content and the concepts should
    be thoroughly articulated in that section. Also, remember to cite your sources and use
    proper APA format for the reference page and in-text citations.
