  1. Discuss, compare and contrast the necessity and theories behind the “juvenile justice language” concepts versus the Criminal Justice Terminology using Chapter One – pp. 8-9, Figure 1.3 and Figure 1.5, p. 15.  You can use the text information, but also do your own thinking and extend the discussion beyond the text.  I’m interesting in your personal reaction and whether the juvenile justice language is useful, and if so, how.  If not, why? (10 points)
  • Write a detailed personal response discussing the value (or lack of value) to the assumptions of the juvenile justice system, i.e., “they deserve a second chance,” and “they can be rehabilitated.”  (10 points)
  • Study A:   Study page 39 Fig 2.2 (Chapter Two), the Historical Assumptions of the Juvenile Justice System, then study  B:  The Adult Model of  Correctional Philosophical Perspectives found in Module # 4, 2nd selection.  Put A, Fig. 2.2 and B, Module 4 #2 side by side.  As you can see, A are the juvenile historical philosophical assumptions influencing the juvenile system’s reaction and treatment for the last 120 years, while B is similar in that the adult Correctional Model philosophical historical assumptions covers 400 years!  Whew, huh!   Now, looking at the development and changes over time in juvenile justice system and  the criminal justice system simultaneously (the point in comparing these two figures), discuss which specific approaches you think are most effective for curbing crime and for treating /rehabilitating juveniles and adults!.  You can combine the models for YOUR perspective or model that YOU draw.  Just be sure to explain if you create your own model.  Don’t just put your model in a chart without detailed examination, reasoning, and logic.
