JUVENILE JUSTICE WRITING ASSIGNMENT

You are required to write a short paper on a juvenile and his/her progression through the juvenile justice system. This paper is worth 30 points. This will be an opportunity to be as creative as you like. You will “invent” a juvenile offender and chronicle their progression through the justice system. This will be a fun assignment in that you make up the circumstances, their history, their offense, their guilt, and what happens in the “system.” It will require an understanding of the juvenile justice system and how it works. Correct terminology will be expected as well as “believable” outcomes. For those of you who have always wanted to try your hand at “fiction writing” this is your opportunity. This paper will be written in the FIRST PERSON so you can not only explain what is occurring but what you are thinking and feeling as these things occur.

The paper will not require any references though you may use them if desired. The length will be 3-4 pages and I will stop reading at the bottom of page 4. This will be written in compliance with the provided rubric and turned in as a doc attached to an email.
