Your paper will be a theoretical analysis of Hell’s Angel (Barger) and Images of Deviance and Social Control (Pfohl) utilizing three of the different perspectives you studied throughout the term (i.e. classical, societal reaction, functionalist, etc.). The Analytical Paper is due by Sunday at 11:59 pm (CT), during Unit 7. The references can be only from the two books used for the course (Pfohl and Barger). Your paper should include major components of the theoretical paradigms and limitations of each of the perspectives in your analysis.
The paper needs to be written in APA format. The typed paper needs to be 7-10 full pages in length. The title page, abstract and references are not included in the total page count. A minimum of 9 citations are required, three for each theoretical perspective. The citations do not necessarily have to come from outside sources, but the use of the resources at your disposal should be included in your analysis. Components of the paper should include: introduction, thesis statement, perspectives with your parenthetical citations, and conclusion. References should come from Pfohl, the reader, and outside resources with the same limitations on Wikipedia and similar sites. Correct spelling, proper formatting, and appropriate grammar are required. Students should write the paper in an academic voice. Do not use a conversational tone when writing the paper. Points will be deducted per offense. Late papers will be deducted 15 points per day for each day after the submission deadline.
