Topic The following topic is based upon the textbook-reader, Sociological Explanations of Crime and Deviance, and upon one electronic journal reading: Social disorganization theory. Read pp. 75-153 in the textbook-reader Sociological Explanations of Crime and Deviance. Your reading (and referencing/citations) should include the general introduction to social disorganization theory (pp. 75-77), the specific introduction to the Shaw and McKay reading (pp. 79-82), the Shaw and McKay reading on “the growth of Chicago” (pp. 82-103), the specific introduction to the Sampson and Groves reading (pp.104-106), the Sampson and Groves reading on “community structure and crime” (pp.107-132), the specific introduction to the Bursik and Grasmick reading (pp. 133-135), plus the Bursik and Grasmick reading on “economic deprivation and neighborhood crime rates” (pp. 135-153). This assignment also requires you to read one journal article, available through SFU library’s electronic journals: Osgood, W. D. and Chambers, J. M. (2000). Social disorganization outside the metropolis: An analysis of rural youth violence. Criminology, 38(1), 81-115. The in-text references and references cited section at the end of your paper should therefore include five individual references to five different reading selections from the textbook-reader, Sociological Explanations of Crime and Deviance, plus a reference to the Osgood and Chambers article on social disorganization and rural youth violence. You may also wish to make reference to/cite/incorporate materials from lectures 4 and 5 on social disorganization theory, and tutorials 3 and 4 on social disorganization theory. Demonstrate your knowledge/understanding of social disorganization theory. Satisfactory “demonstration of knowledge and understanding” includes demonstrated knowledge of and familiarity with the four original (required) readings by Shaw an McKay, Sampson and Groves, Bursik and Grasmick and Osgood and Chambers. Please note that term papers relying exclusively or primarily upon the three brief introductions from the course reader and lectures 4 and 5 and tutorials 3 and 4—and that do not CRIM 104 Term Paper 2 incorporate substantial information from the four (required) original readings—will receive an automatic penalty of 25% of the value of the paper (i.e., a deduction of 5 out of 20 possible points). You should be able to trace the development of social disorganization theory, from its earlier roots in Chicago School thinking, to the later studies by Sampson and Groves, Bursik and Grasmick, and Osgood and Chambers. Try to identify (describe) the main factors or elements associated with social disorganization. What sort of confirmation/supporting evidence did the Sampson and Groves, Bursik and Grasmick and Osgood and Chambers studies provide for Shaw and McKay’s social disorganization theory? In what areas did they find that Shaw and McKay’s social disorganization theory needed further refinement? What are the differences between the findings/conclusions of Sampson and Groves’s, Bursik and Grasmick’s and Osgood and Chambers studies? Does social disorganization theory provide a good explanation for crime? If so, why? If not, why not? –See the upload material “CRIM-104-Term-Paper-Topic” for the paper topic, format info and grading standards –APA, 5 references and 12 quotes. 1 reference and 5 quotes need tobe from the Sociological Explanations of Crime and Deviance, (See the upload material “book cover” and the upload material “isbn”) Idon’tjhve the book so the writer needsto find the book by him or herself.plus 1 reference and 4 quotes from Osgood and Chambers article on social disorganization and rural youth violence.
