History of Correctional Institutions

Please compose a three to four page paper based on the History of Corrections. The paper must contain a cover sheet, abstract, body, and bibliography, and conform to APA guidelines. The body of the report should contain at least three pages of information. Although the text may be used, at least one outside (other than text) peer reviewed source must be used. Assessment will be based on the students ability to follow assignment directions, identify issues and articulate relevant concepts, proper use of grammar and sentence structure, and application of APA style format. An additional purpose of this initial assignment is to evaluate the students writing baseline and provide feedback for additional written assignments including the final course paper. It is anticipated that students will apply the feedback provided to enhance future writing.
