summary of a book. Critical reflection assignments are those in which you connect key ideas and
concepts from the chapters, reflect on their importance to the theory, research, or practice of juvenile justice,
their relevance for specific actors in the juvenile justice system, and make connections to the real world outside
of the classroom.

and justice and think through the theoretical or policy implications of each author’s work.
apply and synthesize information rather than summarize information. The minimum word count for critical reflection assignments is 400 words. All assignments must
contain appropriate in-text citations and a reference section in APA style.
Some questions you may ask yourself as you are writing to help guide are located below. This is not a
complete list, nor should you try and answer every question in every assignment.
What are the most important ideas from these readings/chapters? Why are they the most important? How
could they be elaborated more thoroughly in future research? What do we, as professionals and students of juvenile justice, stand to learn from this information or
material? How do we disseminate this information to stakeholders (e.g. police)?
Why is this material relevant to the study of juvenile justice? How do we emphasize the greatest points of
importance from the reading to relevant groups (e.g. teachers or politicians)? What are the implications of this author’s argument in this section? How are those implications different for
different groups of people?
How would we take what we have learned in this reading/chapter and apply it to the ‘real world’? What
problems would we have with implementation?
What concepts related to social structure are highlighted in these readings? How does this reading
demonstrate individuals with agency who are constrained by patterns of social structure outside of their
control (e.g. patterns of gender arrangements in society)?
To what extent does this fit with the common perception of crime and justice key social statuses like race
and gender? What are the first steps in changing those perceptions? Why does it matter that we change
those perceptions?
How do these ideas compare to other ideas presented in the course through other readings and materials?
Which would be more helpful in teaching this material to others, or what other materials would you include
alongside the reading(s) to further support the major points?
How can this concept cut across situations and be helpful in affecting positive social change in relation to
an existing social problem (e.g. substance use)? Would that effect be differential, based on things like
urbanicity vs. rurality? What about for adolescents vs. adults?
Whether and to what extent are there differences, discontinuities, or things this author (reading) and
another author (reading) disagree about? Why are these differences meaningful? Which person should we
listen to based on your expert understanding of the reading(s)?
To what extent does the reading demonstrate bias in its methods, findings, or results? How can these be
improved in future research? What other groups would benefit from a similar study conducted with them?
What might that find that is different?
What might future research based on what was learned in this section look like? How can we learn more
about this concept as social scientists? Would quantitative or qualitative methodologies work better? Why?
How do we best capture this specific population for social scientific study?
What are some questions the author(s) did not ask that should have been asked? Why are these as or
more relevant than what the author selected? How might the findings be different today from when this
book (reading) was published?
