Syllabi and Instructional Materials for Courses in Juvenile Delinquency. Resource Materials for Teaching.
Broderick, John, Ed.
One of a series of resources for teaching sociology at the postsecondary level, this volume contains syllabi and instructional materials for courses in juvenile delinquency. Material is divided into two parts. Part One consists of 16 syllabi ranging from those stressing theory to those which are more directly concerned with the practical problems of justice administration. For example, the first syllabus begins with a social history of delinquency and focuses on major causal theories; the last syllabus examines the juvenile justice process from arrest to incarceration. The syllabi have been selected from university and college courses taught around the country. For each one, the following information is generally provided: instructor, university, course description, course requirements, readings, and a course outline. Part Two contains seven additional articles and documents, some of which were written originally for this volume. Writing and research by both teachers and students, field work and internships, and procedures for developing an active sociological perspective are considered in these articles. The volume concludes with a list of contributors. (LP)
