CRJ 100 : Reflection Paper
Write a reflection essay explaining some main concepts you learned during the course. This class concerns introduction to criminal justice. This reflection essay gives you an opportunity to demonstrate your growth during the course, as well as express any comments about the course that may be of benefit to the instructor. For this essay, there will be no need for a reference page or citations. The required word count is 400. The first deduction of points will come from word shortage. It needs to be submitted as a Word document, double spaced, 12 font, Times New Roman. I have also attached the syllabus as guidance.

Kenneth Peak ? 2nd ed. ? Sage Publishing
ISBN: 9781506305929 Bundled together
9781506356129 Careers in Criminal Justice
Coy Johnston ? 1st ed. ? Sage Publishing
ISBN: 9781483331461 Clickers: Students must have a clicker. These can be purchased at the bookstore.
They buy these back later. You will likely use a clicker in other classes, especially if
you have Pro J again. Students must register their clicker and it must be done correctly
in order to use it in class. Enter our class in Blackboard. Click on tools. Find the turning
technologies link and click on it. Register your clicker by following all the prompts.
Students need to have the clicker at every class. Students who do not have their clicker
will be allowed to do most assignments (except exams) but can only get half the points.
If there were a 10-point quiz at the end of class and a student forgets his clicker and takes
it on paper, the most points said student can receive would be five points. If said student
misses one question, the yield would be 4.5.
STATEMENT OF WORKLOARD EXPECTATIONS:
The Arizona Board of Regents, the governing board for ASU, NAU, and the U of A, has a policy
for how much time students should invest in their courses: ?A minimum of 45 hours of work by
each student is required for each unit of credit.? Therefore, in a 3-credit course, students should
expect to invest 45 hours in class meetings (or the online equivalent), as well as 90 hours doing
homework and assignments?a total of 135 hours in any given session (A, B, or C). As you
register for courses, keep this 135-hour standard in mind because during some semesters your
work and/or family commitments may prevent you from taking a full load of classes. LEARNING ACTIVITIES: 2 Reading Assignments ? Unless otherwise specifically assigned, reading assignments are taken
from the required resources specified above. The reading assignments listed for each class are
those readings that a student must complete before the class. Not all of the assigned readings will
be discussed in class; however, all assigned readings may be covered on quizzes, exams, or other
In-class points - Students will complete miscellaneous exercises, quizzes, and participation
assignments on Mondays worth five points. Students will complete a 10-point quiz each
Wednesday, which is comprised of 5 questions from the lectures during the week and 5 points
from the chapter readings. These will be done via clicker. If you miss a class you will lose
points. If you come late or leave early, you will possibly lose points from early or late quizzes.
These points can only be earned in class. There are a few exceptions in which alternate work will
be allowed if approved ahead of time. See ATTENDANCE on pages 8-9.
Exams ? Students will take three exams worth 75 points each. The exams will be taken via
clicker only. These exams will be multiple choice and true and false. The exams are noncumulative, covering only material not previously tested. All students are allowed one make up
exam, but there is no make up for the final. Students can choose which exam they wish to make
up, but a second make up will not be allowed. The make-up exam is taken 20 minutes prior to the
following class (outside the classroom) on paper.
Final Project ? Students will complete a project paper due on December 3, 2016. Papers will be
no less than 1500 words, not including the title page, abstract, and reference page. The first
deduction of points will be for word shortage. The paper?s format will follow APA guidelines.
The grading rubric is on page 12. The paper must be submitted via blackboard in module 15
prior to midnight on December 3, 2016. After midnight the paper must be submitted via email
with a late penalty. Use at least two outside sources as well as our two textbooks. To complete
this assignment: Select a career in criminal justice. Select a specific agency within your chosen career. Research the agency?s requirements, salary, and hiring process. Interview an employee or ex-employee in your chosen career field. Find out the
o The interviewee?s job description
o The path the interviewee took to get to where he or she is
o The requirements/qualifications
o The hiring process
o Any advice for someone who might want to pursue a similar career Find a second agency in the same career field. Compare the salary, requirements, and
hiring process. Decide which agency would be the best fit for you and explain your
There will be a 25% deduction for each day late (after midnight), but will not be accepted
after midnight on December 5th.
On line quizzes - Students will take at least one quiz per week (15 quizzes) on blackboard worth
20 points each. These will be open book quizzes from the textbooks. Each quiz will be timed at
3 30 minutes and will always be due on Saturday nights at midnight. See schedule on page 6.
There are no make-ups on these quizzes. They must be completed by the deadline in order to get
the points. If for some far-fetched reason blackboard goes down on a Saturday evening, there is a
possibly of an extension for procrastinators, but only if permission is granted prior to the
deadline. That means a student must notify the instructor either by email or text, and receive
permission for an extension prior to midnight. There is no guarantee an extension will be given.
You can do quizzes ahead of time.
Homework - Students will complete three homework assignments as follows:
1. Jung Typology Test (www.humanmetrics.com) due by midnight on Aug 27th in
module one (25 points)
2. NIMS Certificate (http://training.fema.gov/IS/NIMS.aspx) due by midnight Oct 1st in
module six (25 points)
3. Self Reflection Paper due by midnight on December 3rd in module 15 (25 points)
*All homework must be posted in blackboard by the due date and will not be accepted late.

12/3 ACADEMIC INTEGRITY:
1. Academic Dishonesty ? In addition to academic performance, students are expected to
demonstrate the qualities of honesty and integrity. All submissions by a student are
expected to be the original work product of the submitting student. Material that violates
this requirement in any way, or that constitutes any form of dishonesty, cheating,
fabrication, the facilitation of academic dishonesty, and/or plagiarism, may result in the
student receiving a failing grade in the course (?XE?) and in appropriate disciplinary
action being initiated. Please see the official ASU Policy on Cheating and Plagiarism
(Policy Statement 08-02) for more details about the consequences of academic
dishonesty. It is accessible online at: http://provost.asu.edu/academicintegrity
2. Electronic Review ? To ensure compliance with academic integrity policies, written
submissions will be submitted to SafeAssign, TurnItIn, or a similar plagiarism detection
program. Submission of any writing assignment in the course to the professor constitutes
consent by the student for the instructor to upload the paper to check against any antiplagiarism database. 6 3. Avoiding Plagiarism ? Some students truly do not understand what plagiarism is, and
therefore plagiarize unwittingly or unintentionally. But ignorance is not an excuse for
unethical academic conduct. To combat such ignorance, here are rules and resources to
help you avoid any problems with plagiarism. Of course, these rules apply regardless of
the citation form or style you may be using.
a. Direct Quotations ? Whenever you directly quote someone else, you must provide a
citation to the source of the material from which you are quoting. Moreover, you must
put the material in quotation marks or otherwise set it off in an indented quote so the
reader knows what words are yours and what words are quoted. It is unacceptable to
use the words of others and only partially quote the original source. This is true even
if you provide citation to the source both in text and in your references section!
b. Paraphrasing/Indirect Quotations ? Whenever you indirectly quote someone else (i.e.,
you paraphrase the work of another), you must provide a citation to the source of the
material from which you are paraphrasing. Simply changing the structure of a
sentence, or a few words in a sentence so that the sentence you write is not an exact
quote from the original source does not mean a citation is not needed. This is because
the idea you are expressing is not your own, but rather someone else?s.
c. Using Other?s Ideas ? Even if you compose an entire paragraph of writing in your
own words (i.e., neither quoted nor paraphrased), if the idea you are expressing in that
paragraph is not your own, original idea, you must provide a citation to the source
from which you obtained this idea.
d. Collaborative Work ? If you collaborate on any work with someone else and fail to
acknowledge that collaboration, you are guilty of plagiarism. If you have received
permission from you professor to collaborate on some assignment, be sure that all of
the contributor's names appear on the submission.
e. Altering or Revising Another?s Work ? If you alter or revise the work done by
someone and submit that work as your own, you have plagiarized. Similarly, if you
allow someone else to alter or revise work that you have done and then allow that
person to submit it as his or her own work, you are both guilty of plagiarism. Work
that is not entirely your own must be credited by citation, both in text and in your
f. Altering or Revising Your Own Prior Work ? You should also be aware that altering
or revising your own work that was prepared for another class or another professor,
and not bringing it to the attention of the professor to whom you are submitting the
revised work is also academic dishonesty. If, for example, you have two classes that
require a term paper, and you can write one paper that meets the requirements of both
classes, you may not submit that paper to both professors unless you get permission
to do so in advance from both professors. Similarly, if you wrote a paper several
semesters ago that can be revised and submitted in satisfaction of a paper requirement
for a course in which you are currently enrolled; doing so is academic dishonesty
7 unless you get the advanced permission of your professor to do so. The reason this is
dishonest is that it is not an original work prepared in satisfaction for the requirements
on the course you are currently taking.
SPECIAL LEARNING NEEDS:
In compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, and the Americans with
Disabilities Act of 1990, professional disability specialists and support staff at the Disability
Resource Centers (DRC) facilitate a comprehensive range of academic support services and
accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. DRC staff coordinate transition from
high schools and community colleges, in-service training for faculty and staff, resolution of
accessibility issues, community outreach, and collaboration between all ASU campuses
regarding disability policies, procedures, and accommodations.
1. Establishing Eligibility for Disability Accommodations ? Students who feel they will
need disability accommodations in this class but have not registered with the DRC should
contact the DRC immediately. Students should contact the DRC on the campus that your
class is being held. Campus-specific location and contact information can be found on the
DRC website: https://eoss.asu.edu/drc. DRC offices are open 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
Mondays through Fridays.
2. Disability Accommodations ? Prior to receiving any disability accommodations,
verification of eligibility from the DRC is required. Once registered with the DRC,
students with disabilities must meet with me to discuss what reasonable accommodations
they will need to be successful in this course. For students with disabilities that are
known at the time this course begins, I encourage you to make your request for
accommodations at the beginning of the semester, either during office hours or by
appointment. For disabilities that arise after the course has begun, students should meet
with me at the earliest possible time to arrange for accommodations of their learning
needs. Disability information is confidential.
Planned Excused Absences ? When any of the following three reasons directly conflict with class
meeting times, students are responsible for informing the professor of the reason for the absence
at least one week in advance of the absence:
a. Religious reasons;
b. Jury duty or similar governmental obligation (a copy of the summons or other official
paperwork must be provided); and 8 c. University-sanctioned and/or university-approved activities (e.g., artistic
performances, participation in research conferences, intercollegiate athletic activities,
student government, required class field trips, etc.).
d. Activities arranged and approved prior to the start of the semester.
If instructor approves any of the above absences, student will be given an alternate
assignment for the points that were missed in class. Absences for other reasons (sickness,
injury, family illnesses, car trouble, etc.) will not be eligible for makeup. Most classes
have a 5 or 10-point activity, so missing class will result in a 5 or 10-point loss.
At times, we will be discussing material that may be disturbing?even traumatizing?to
some students. This may include strong language (including swear words); graphic
descriptions of or extensive discussions of crimes and associated victimization (including
suicide, homicide, rape and sexual abuse, kidnapping, violent assaults, and drug abuse);
and depiction or discussion of discriminatory attitudes or actions. If you have
experienced criminal victimization or some other type of trauma in your past, you should
feel free to excuse yourself from the classroom during a discussion that causes you to
experience distress. You will, however, be responsible for any material you miss or,
alternatively, for an alternate assignment if you are unable to engage with the material. If
you ever wish to discuss your personal reactions to this material with me, I welcome such
discussion as an appropriate part of our coursework. If you suffer from some form of
post-traumatic stress that may be triggered by discussion of material in criminology and
criminal justice courses, I encourage you to formulate a plan for treatment with the
relevant health advisers to work on preventing unexpected reactions to potentially
triggering material. ASU student counseling services can be reached Monday through
Friday from 8am to 5pm at 602-496-1155 or in the Historic Post Office Building, Suite
208. There is also a 24-hour ASU-dedicated crisis hotline at 480-921-1006.
Keep in mind that some discomfort is inevitable in classrooms because the goals of
higher education include exposing students to new ideas; having students question beliefs
they have taken for granted and grapple with ethical problems they have never
considered; and, more generally, expanding their horizons so as to become informed and
responsible democratic citizens. Thus, you should expect to become exasperated from
time to time as you struggle with viewpoints that differ from your own. Even if you have
previously experienced some form of trauma or victimization, this course may offer you
the benefit of helping to understand behaviors in a manner that allows you to process
what may have occurred in your past and move forward in your recovery. 9 STUDENT CONDUCT:
The University expects all students to conduct themselves professionally. Toward that end, I
expect everyone to abide by the following rules of etiquette: Be ?on time? to class. Tardiness is disruptive to the lecture or other class activities.
There may be quizzes at the start and at the end of class. Chatting during lecture, class discussion, or other class activities is inappropriate. Raise your hand to speak in class unless I specifically instruct the class that students
may speak-out as part of a debate or other classroom activity. Keep in mind that it is
not appropriate for anyone to dominate classroom discussion routinely. Nor is it
appropriate to interrupt either the professor or a fellow classmate with some point you
want to make, no matter how eagerly you want to make the point. Although you are welcome to disagree with the professor or your classmates,
everyone is expected to participate respectfully. Students who engage in personal
attacks; who use rude, insulting, or disrespectful language; or who engage in other
disruptive or threatening behavior may face disciplinary action. Indeed, an instructor
may withdraw a student from a course with a mark of ?W? or ?E? when the student?s
behavior disrupts the educational process. In addition, students may face formal
disciplinary action in the Office of Student Judicial Affairs. For more details about the
University?s Student Code of Conduct, please visit the following link and read the
Arizona Board of Regents Policy Manual Sections 5-301 to 5-404, the terms of which
are hereby incorporated by reference into this syllabus:
http://www.azregents.edu/policymanual/default.aspx Do not start putting books away, closing up notebooks, and zipping up book-bags five
minutes before the official end of class. This can be disruptive and distracting to both
the instructor and your classmates. ELECTRONICS:
The only electronic device students may use in class is the clicker.
The only assignment that will be accepted late is the project paper. There will be a 25%
deduction for each day late.
OTHER IMPORTANT POLICIES:
1. Drop/Withdrawal Policies ? For information on dropping/withdrawing from a class, see
this page on ASU?s website: https://students.asu.edu/drop-add. 10 2. Extra Credit ? No extra credit
3. Email ? You need to check your email often for information emailed by the instructor.
You can usually expect an answer to your email questions each evening or first thing the
SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND HARRASSMENT:
Title IX is a federal law that provides that no person be excluded on the basis of sex from
participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education
program or activity. Both Title IX and university policy make clear that sexual violence and
harassment based on sex is prohibited. An individual who believes they have been subjected
to sexual violence or harassed on the basis of sex can seek support, including counseling and
academic support, from the university. If you or someone you know has been harassed on
the basis of sex or sexually assaulted, you can find information and resources at
TECHNICAL SUPPORT: For technical assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, please
contact the University Technology Office Help Desk:
Phone: 480-965-6500 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Web: http://help.asu.edu/ For information on systems outages see the ASU systems status calendar, please visit
http://syshealth.asu.edu/ and http://systemstatus.asu.edu/status/calendar.asp
The course syllabus is an educational contract between the students and the professor.
Accordingly, every effort will be made to avoid changing the course schedule but the
possibility exists that unforeseen events will make syllabus changes necessary. Therefore, the
professor reserves the right to make changes to the syllabus. 11 Grading Rubric for Project Paper
