Project #95747 - Media and Crime log

Media and Crime Log—Entry II

In this module, you will have an opportunity to add to your media and crime log by applying theories presented in this course to media portrayals of crime. The American public is fascinated with crime and therefore, there is no shortage of media depictions of crimes and criminals. In this assignment, you will use the scholarly knowledge you have gained in the course to analyze how the media portrays crime.

You are now familiar with biological, psychological, and sociological theories of crime. In M2: Assignment 2, you wrote a log entry applying psychological theories of criminal behavior to analyze articles or news stories. In this assignment, you will write your second log entry.

Research newspaper or magazine articles related to crime using the print or online news media.

Select two articles or news stories and apply at least two theories from the biological, psychological, and/or sociological perspectives to each article or news story.

 

Write an analysis of each article or news story addressing the following:

What is the purpose of the story as you perceive it?

How is crime or criminal justice portrayed?

What feelings or reactions are evoked in you by the article?

How would you explain the reported criminal behavior using the two theories you selected? Explain your choice of theory.

 

Give complete citation for the selected article and include a digital copy if possible.

Write a 2–3-page log entry in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. It is important to demonstrate application of your learning by integrating more of the course materials and other resources, as in-text citations, emphasize more explanatory reasoning and analysis in your posts to support your points and bolster your statements. Please make sure all of your paragraphs are well-developed as they could be further expanded and are a minimum of three sentences. Please make sure to include references in proper APA format at the end of your work.
