The research paper project is a two part assignment.
Part I: The first section of the project you will provide an in-depth analysis of the gang reduction model as suggested by Klein and Maxson. Provide an overview of gang development, the effectiveness of research, and gang prevention strategies. Your analysis should focus on what works and what does not work. Be sure to utilize research studies that provide an overview of all three philosophies, and discusses their effectiveness and shortcomings. This section of the research paper should be 8-10 pages long with a cover page, abstract, headers, APA 6th ed citations and references. Do Not Use MLA or any other form of referencing. A minimum of four scholarly peer-reviewed references are to be used in your paper.
Part II: The second section of the research project requires you to develop a gang prevention, intervention, or suppression program (pick one) that utilizes Klein and Maxson’s recommendations. You will present this program in a Power Point presentation and should be no more than 10 slides (cover page and reference page does not count). The Power Point will provide an overview of the program, the goals of the program, the methods that will be utilized in the program, and what the theoretical underpinning of the program is. This second section needs to be included as a separate Power Point attachment.
Submission Instructions: Part I of the Final Project needs to be uploaded as a Word Doc attachment. Part II also needs to be uploaded to the assignment as an attachment. Your work will automatically be checked by Turnitin for integrity, originality, and plagiarism.
