War on Drugs and Prison Overcrowding AnalysisWar on Drugs and Prison Overcrowding
AnalysisPermalink: https:// /war-on-drugs-and…rowding-analysis/ ?War on Drugs and
Prison Overcrowding AnalysisWar on Drugs and Prison Overcrowding AnalysisWrite a 700-
to 1,050-word paper on the crowding effect the war on drugs has had on correctional
organizations in your state.Propose three workable solutions to the situation.Substantiate
your solutions with appropriate facts and figures.Include at least four peer reviewed
references.Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.Click the Assignment Files tab
to submit your assignment.You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your
computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on
your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous
misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in
silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is
advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten
corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12
characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins
or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended
number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.Likewise, large type, large
margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines),
increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to
increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your
professor.The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on
the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white
paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to
follow your argument.ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASSDiscussion Questions
(DQ)Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked,
include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.Successful responses
are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion,
well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.One or two sentence
responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic
will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.I
encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your
responses.Weekly ParticipationYour initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count
toward participation and are graded separately.In addition to the DQ responses, you must
post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three
replies.Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite
someone else’s work).Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly
announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are
made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.APA Format and
Writing QualityFamiliarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is
used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student
Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation
examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA
format (if required).Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source.
Paraphrasing also requires a citation.I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual,
6th edition.Use of Direct QuotesI discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and
assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.As Masters’ level students,
it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal
articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate
an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.It is best to paraphrase
content and cite your source.LopesWrite PolicyFor assignments that need to be submitted
to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI)
percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.Once you have received your report,
please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors
that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off
for these mistakes.Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not
paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your
own?Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in
LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.Late PolicyThe university’s policy
on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ
replies.Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I
am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension
based on extenuating circumstances.If you do not communicate with me before submitting
an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.I do not accept assignments that are
two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.As per policy, no
assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after
midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for
grading.CommunicationCommunication is so very important. There are multiple ways to
communicate with me:Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course
content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your
peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.Individual Forum: This is a private
forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24
hours.
