Week 1 Discussion 2

Resource ReadingHow to Read a Case and Research Article       

Carefully examine How to Read a Research Article from Section II of your text (Spohn & Hemmens, 2012, pp. 42-45). Using the 10 criteria for review found in the text, prepare a critical analysis of one of the four articles which immediately follow the analyses techniques:

  • The Process Is the Punishment: Handling Cases in a Lower Criminal Court (Feeley, 1971, as cited in Spohn & Hemmens, 2012, pp. 46-55);
  • The Honest Politicians Guide to Juvenile Justice in the Twenty-First Century (Feld, 1994, as cited in Spohn & Hemmens, 2012, pp. 55-67);
  • The Rehnquist Court and Criminal Justice: An Empirical Assessment (Smith, 2003, as cited in Spohn & Hemmens, 2012, pp. 67-83); or
  • Wrongful Conviction: Perceptions of Criminal Justice Professionals Regarding the Frequency of Wrongful Conviction and the Extent of System Errors (Ramsey & Frank, 2007, as cited in Spohn & Hemmens, 2012, pp. 83-107).

Your analysis should focus on whether or not you believe that the author provided a persuasive analysis and your reasoning for your conclusion. It is recommended that your post contain approximately 400 words.

Guided Response:
Review your colleagues posts, and substantively respond to at least two of your peers. Focus on author bias in the selected article for your primary response. Indicate where your peers observations are either reliable or unreliable based upon the 10 criteria listed in Section II of the text. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Day 7 of the week, and respond with robust dialogue to anyone who replies to your initial post.
