Discussion instructions: you are required to pick material from the assigned readings (Chapter 12, 13 & 26) for the current week. You must post your thoughts in some detail. As you read through the material, please prepare to share with us anything that you find surprising, particularly interesting, or with which you do not agree. For example, you should not simply say, â€œI thought that the discussion on the criminal justice system in chapter 1 was interesting.â€ Instead, you should explain why you thought it was interesting. This means you should plan to write one to two paragraphs. (1 page)
Summary instructions: you are expected to submit a 1- 2 page summary of the material covered (Chapter 12, 13 & 26). This means you must have at least one full page of text, but not more than two. In this assignment, your essay should convey the main points of each chapter and your understanding of the material.
NOTE: Please note that the discussion and summary are two different assignments. Thank you.
