In this assignment, refer to your Theory-to-Practice Project and the FBI Most Wanted criminal you selected to assess how race, gender, and ethnicity impact crime control, prevention, or treatment strategies.
Complete all required readings prior to working on this assignment.
Refer to your Theory-to-Practice Project assignments completed so far.
In 5 paragraphs, analyze the ways in which your selected problem and associated theories are/could be impacted by race, gender, and ethnicity in the development of crime control, prevention, and treatment strategies.

Good Morning CJAD 720 Students!
OVERVIEW OF MODULE 5
In this module we shift our attention to race, gender, and ethnicity issues in criminology/criminal
justice (C/CJ). With a few exceptions, most of the earliest theoretical research centered on
explaining white male criminality. Do theories based on research with only male subjects also help
you understand female criminality? Minorities and criminality? Even though there was a
substantial amount of female and minority scholarship before the 1960s it was virtually unknown
and excluded from most C/CJ courses. After the Civil Rights Movement and other social changes
in the late 20th century, Black, Latino/a Native American, other minority and female scholars
challenged these exclusions. Today, most undergraduate, and graduate C/CJ programs require
courses that focus on either ethnicity, gender and/or race. This week you are required to incorporate
this subject matter into your Discussion Assignment and TCP Draft.

Course and Faculty Evaluation
Draft: Theory to Practice Project (TPP)
The purpose of the TPP Outline assignment is to assess your ability to:
1. Evaluate contemporary criminology theories.
2. Synthesize criminology theories to formulate prevention, treatment, and crime control
3. Demonstrate knowledge and application of issues related to cultural diversity and
normative criminological theory development and application.
4. Critically evaluate the relationship between data patterns and criminology theory
development, application, and policy formation.
5. Analyze policy formation, implementation, and evaluation.
1. Complete all required readings prior to working on this assignment.
2. Read the Theory to Practice Project Overview (Module 1) before working on this
3. You must have completed the Outline: Theory to Practice Project (Module 4) to complete
this assignment. Use any feedback from your professor to improve your paper.
4. Format your title page, paper, and cite ALL sources according to APA 7th Edition.
Note: The draft and final paper should be about 12-15 pages excluding the title page and
references. Submit the paper to TII. The paper is due Sunday (2/7).
Module 5 Theory to Practice: Race, Gender & Ethnicity
This posting will include five (5) paragraphs and differs from previous discussions. In this
assignment explain how either a race/ethnicity or gender-based theory might be applied to the
criminal you selected. Exclude the summary of the FBI Most Wanted Criminal. Instead explain
how either race/ethnicity or gender inform or explain criminality. Remember that these theories
may not be applicable to your offender although they do impact crime control, prevention, and
treatment strategies used in justice agencies. Post your initial summary by Wednesday (2/3).
Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings by Saturday (2/6) and post your follow-up
to questions/comments on your original post by Sunday (2/7).
Course & Faculty Evaluation
Please complete the Course and Faculty Evaluation survey. Franklin University appreciates your
honest and constructive feedback. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. FYI – Instructors
cannot identify respondents and do not have access to the evaluation information until after the
course has officially ended.
This week TPP Outlines will be graded before Module 4 papers. Please review and incorporate
feedback into your TPP Draft.
A schedule of available days/times for your Module 6 TPP will be made available this week.
Usually, students prefer to present towards the end of the week. If you know when you would like
to present you can send me a message. All presentations will need to be completed before
It is impossible to understand the complexities of ethnicity, race, gender, and crime/justice either
nationally or internationally in one module/week. Like theory courses, there are graduate and
undergraduate courses devoted to race/ethnicity and crime, gender and crime, and in some
programs, both are included in the same course. Select a topic and issue of interest to you that
informs your Theory to Practice Summary (discussion) and TPP final paper.
The failure of law enforcement during the insurrection at the United States Capitol will be studied
for decades. One thing that should be clear to everyone, if it was not before, is that police responses
do vary by race.
This week and next, try to allocate at least one hour every day to completing course
assignments. Keep up the good work!
