Then:

  • Summarize ONE (1) article’s key points.
  • Because the summary you compose is relatively brief,  do not use direct quotes from the article, make sure to paraphrase and use your own words.
  • Explain how the article is related to the assigned readings.
  • Discuss a law or criminal justice policy that you think should be enacted to resolve the sentencing-related problem(s) addressed in the article.
