Part 2: Theory and Explanation
The purpose of part 2 of this part of the project is to discuss and decide upon a theory or theories you think BEST explains the criminal behavior and/or criminal you selected in part 1.
For part 2, you are to choose 2-3 theories discussed in this course (we may or may not have covered the best theory for your criminal at this point) to apply to the crime/criminal you selected in part 1. If none of the theories we have covered thus far seem to apply, look ahead, and select a theory to be covered later. We will cover all the major theories before this part is due. Once you have selected 3 theories, you will need to compose a research paper that explains each of the theories and addresses the following for EACH theory:
You will combine parts 1 and 2 with the final section to submit as your final project. The more thorough your explanation is here, the easier it will be to select a final theory and apply it to your crime/criminal for your final project. YOU DO NOT AND SHOULD NOT DISCUSS YOUR PARTICULAR CRIME IN THIS PART; just focus on explaining the theories and providing the support for them.
