Additional Book Details
Using an evidence-based approach, Juvenile Justice invites students to take a journey toward understanding the United States juvenile justice system and the response from police, courts, and correctional institutions to crimes committed by juveniles, as well as the strategies used to deter these crimes. Renowned authors Frank Schmalleger and Catherine D. Marcum combine a practical tone with a variety of engaging learning exercises that connect readers with the material. Students are encouraged to put what they learn into action—increasing their ability to comprehend and retain information long after they have completed the course.
A variety of active-learning exercises developed by the authors, some individual and some group-oriented, enhance student learning. In the Media exercises encourage students to think about the relationship between traditional and social media and how they impact juvenile behavior. Navigating the Field exercises let students explore and evaluate evidence-based strategies that have impacted a juvenile justice program, policy, or practice related to the chapter content. Exploring Juvenile Justice Further application activities at the end of each chapter offer additional opportunities for students to apply what they have learned in class to the real world. A unique chapter on Juveniles and Cybercrime enables students to think critically about cyberbullying, cyberstalking, child pornography, and digital piracy. Humanizing the individuals involved in the juvenile justice system, each chapter opens with a vignette to highlight a contemporary issue for that particular subject. Case studies and accompanying questions encourage students to discuss and debate real-world examples of juvenile court cases.
