Students will be assessed on their ability to convincing respond to question(s), using both theory and data covered in class. Thus, the response papers need to be both persuasive and expository, and should be well written. Appropriate and convincing use of data (e.g., statistics, specific examples) will account for up to 50% of content grade, while use of concepts and theories introduced in the readings will account for the remaining 50% of the grade. Content from the assigned monograph should be drawn from the entire text, not just the first chapter/s (although this is where the theoretical frames are often detailed). Poor organization and/or writing and/or editing will result in up to a 3-point deduction. Response papers should not use or any sources outside those assigned for class (including those that may be part of the question itself), but may reference other readings and student case study reports. Students that use outside sources will have their scores reduced by 20% (5 points). Quotations of more than five words are specifically disallowed (and will result in a 2 point deduction for each quotation of more than five words); use only page number when citing unique terms or data points (e.g., a statistic or a specific example) from the assigned monograph, e.g., (p. 105); author and page from other sources, e.g., (Vargas, 105); and author only for general references (Vargas).
For the Goffman monograph, answer ONE of the following sets of inter-related questions:
1. What are the most problematic elements of poor, inner city neighborhoods according to Goffman? How do these compare and contrast with what Allen describes in Milwaukee? How do these lead the authors to different conclusions about what would be necessary for
solving problems of poverty and violence in inner cities?
2. Goffman clearly takes on the perspective her subjects vis-à-vis the criminal justice system,
but how could Goffman’s observations be used to defend a stronger police response in places
like 6th Street in Philadelphia? How would you defend the need for more formal intervention by the criminal justice system, based on what Goffman has described. Who would likely benefit from these interventions, and why would they likely benefit? Why do you think that stronger policing (“suppression”) interventions will be more successful than those promoted
by Goffman in Philadelphia and Will Allen in Milwaukee?
3. Based on Goffman’s observations, prioritize three realistic interventions other than stronger
policing that you think would lead to reducing deviance among the youth in Philadelphia’s 6thStreet neighborhood (if you are interested in the policing intervention, answer Question #2). To do so, you will need to use Goffman to construct up to three causal arguments about why deviance occurs in neighborhoods like 6th street, and how proposed interventions would work to reduce deviance. Does Will Allen’s experience in Milwaukee support your causal
arguments and interventions?
