Social Disorganization Theory
I need a PowerPoint created and an paper to follow. Question #3: Construct your own theory building on the research of three disorganization theorists. what is and how does social disorganization develop? select an example and apply the theory. research paper Summary: This project requires you to study three theorists based on a research question that you select, identify the strengths and weaknesses of the base theories and develop your own theory. YOUR WILL NEED TO DO ADDITIONAL RESEARCH ON YOUR THEORIES BEYOND THE TEXT AND ALSO ANSWER HOW THESE THEORIES APPLY TO ADULT OFFENDERS SPECIFICALLY. IN ADDITION, YOU SHOULD WATCH ALL OF THE MOODLE VIDEOS ABOUT YOUR THEORY AND BE PREPARED. This is a research paper assignment with a twist. It requires you to research the information, develop your own original theory and then apply what youve learned using real life examples. DON’T FORGET TO INCLUDE YOUR DIAGRAM IN YOUR PRESENTATION AND YOUR PAPER!!! Please submit a minimum of 5 paged double-spaced typed paper12 Tahoma font. Please cite all sources. Grammar and sentence structure are important! This assignment includes an individual paper and an individual PowerPoint or Prezi presentation. This paper requires you to use three different theories as the basis for a new original theory created by you. You are must prepare an oral presentation. There is a minimum of 7 slides not including the title page that lists the question, question number and your name and a works cited slide that lists your resources. Your presentation and your paper should include an illustration created by you that graphically depicts your theory. The presentation requires you to discuss the theories and concepts that you are using as the basis of your theory and then analyze the validity of this construct. Why is your theory better? For example, my theory is based on the following three theorists. I selected blank components from each of these theories and used them to form the blank theory. In evaluating the blank offender or phenomenon, my theory when applied explains the behavior/phenomenon in the following way using the following features. I conclude the following in the context of this offender … The (blank) theory states that I (Author) first developed this theory… in (year). I (Author), while studying in, teaching in or working for (place) tested the theory in research studies or the theory remains untested. The genesis of the theory is… Its major assumptions are… Its strengths are… Its weaknesses are … You will be graded on your organization; knowledge of the base theories or concepts; originality, presentation of the theoretical foundation of your argument; initial statement of your position; response to the issue you are examining; eye contact; elocution; handouts distributed to the class; and you need a diagram to visually explain your theory; your PowerPoint or Prezi will be graded on mechanics, organization should be visually pleasing with graphics and should include a handout for the class. COMMON MISTAKES 1) Did not develop your own theory. The papers thoroughly discuss the foundation theories and then devote a paragraph or two to the main reason for the paper YOUR OWN THEORY! This is the most important part of the paper. 2) High similarity score. Since I deduct the similarity from your final score this can be devastating. 3) Did not review the rubric to see what was supposed to be covered by the paper. 4) Did not use three theories. Come on Shaw and McKay are not two theories-it’s the same theory by two theorists. 5) Did not mention the person who created the theory that you used. 6) Did not include the strengths and weaknesses of your foundation theories or your theory. This is really important because the strengths of the other theories should be part of your new theory and the weaknesses should be “solved” by your new theory. 7) If I told you that you had to represent and your presentation mirrored your paper it’s wrong as well. YOU SHOULD FIX THESE ISSUES IN your paper.  You need a minimum of five sources (excluding the test); at least two should be scholarly articles or books; Internet sites must be saved in pdf form and attached.
