Be sure to submit your project in one WORD document in APA format and place it in the appropriate assignment dropbox.
Choose one of three delinquent youth subcultures (gangs, goth/punk, or straight edge). Using Excelsiorâ€™s library resources, research the subculture you select by identifying academic sources (journal articles, federal and state agency reports, academic books and monographs, etc) as well as online content to present a descriptive overview. Your paper must:
- Describe the subcultureâ€™s origins and history
- Identify the groupâ€™s activities, focusing on delinquency and illegal behavior
- Incorporate one or more of the biological, psychological or sociological theories covered in the course to explain the subcultureâ€™s existence
- And last, what societyâ€™s response to the subculture should be including prevention recommendations.
Papers should be between 5 and 7 pages in length, double-spaced in Times Roman size 12 font in APA style. Your paper must have a minimum of 12 references and all references must be cited in the paper. While the research paper is not due until 11:55 pm eastern time on Sunday of Module 7, it is important to begin the research process of gathering academic sources on your topic during the first and second weeks so as to not fall behind.
