””Use Chapter 11 for the chapter paper””’

The purpose of this paper is to present your well-articulated perspective and thoughts from the chapters assigned from the reading. Select a chapter from the assigned reading for the week in which the Chapter Application Paper is due and write a 5-7 page paper which summarizes, synthesizes, and then applies the information from the Chapter to issues/policies relevant to the topic. Each paper must identify the premise and supporting points of the chapter, a synthesis of the information from the chapter, and a critical application of the premise(s) and supporting points from the chapter to an issue of criminal offending. The paper should address: • Key points, patterns, and trends from the information in the chapter • How the chapter information applies to issues of criminal offending • Analysis of the chapter information from a Christ-centered perspective The organization of your paper is very important. Please follow APA and make sure to use section headings in your paper. Make sure to include a cover page, a references page, and develop a well-formatted, grammatical correct paper. Your paper must be a minimum of 5-7 pages, be well-organized, and be reflective of your thinking and struggles in these very complex areas of dealing with criminal offending.
