● In your opinion, given your studies thus far, which theories do you believe best explains crime? ● Do you know someone personally, professionally or otherwise whose behavior would fit into one or more of these theories. Notice there are essentially questions I ask you in order for you to get your head wrapped around the topic. When you write your response there is no need to write the question and answer it separately or to answer every single question. Write a discussion, a brief 150 to 200 word Main Post hitting the highlights. I have divided the class into groups of 8 students in each group. I believe this will make it easier to collaborate with your peers. Read the Discussion Participation Guidelines prior to submission. This is the expectation for all discussions within this course. The Discussion Question will open on Monday, July 26, 2021 and close on Sunday, August 1, 2021, at 11:59 pm. No submissions will be accepted after this date. The goal of course is to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas. Rather than posting “mini papers,” course discussions are intended to simulate a live discussion with a comprehensive, supported response to the main post discussion prompts. Unless specifically requested to do so in the Discussion Question posting instructions, do not use attachments in your discussion postings. Your discussion postings will be graded via a Rubric. The Rubric serves as your Scoring Guide so make sure you follow it. You will submit your main post and responses in "WORD." Please do not attempt to submit a post in PDF format, it will not be accepted. By Thursday, July 29, 2021 1:59 PM (EST) you need to submit your initial posting (Your Main Post) to each discussion question.
