RESEARCH PAPER: FINAL ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
OVERVIEW
The last step of the Research Paper Assignment is to prepare a Research Paper: Final
Assignment. Throughout the course, you have written a Research Paper: Thesis Assignment
and Research Paper: Annotated Outline Assignment. The Research Paper: Final
Assignment will combine and expand upon those two assignments.
INSTRUCTIONS
The Research Paper: Final Assignment must include the following elements:
1. Title Page;
2. Body (including an Introduction, Argument, and Conclusion); and
3. Reference Page
All components of the Research Paper: Final Assignment must be written using current APA
formatting and must be on the same criminal justice topic that you selected for your Research
Paper: Thesis Assignment and Research Paper: Annotated Outline Assignment.
The Research Paper: Final Assignment must develop an argument that is highlighted in the
thesis and supported with solid academic research and analysis. Each facet of the thesis must be
addressed and analyzed throughout the Research Paper: Final Assignment.
Title Page
The Title Page must use proper APA format. Review the LU Quick Guide for the proper APA
format of the Title Page.
Body
The body of the Research Paper: Final Assignment must be comprised of 4?6 pages of
content. The Title Page and Reference Page are not included in the page count.
Within the body, the Introduction must include background information on the criminal justice
topic, a well-written thesis, and a preview of points.
Within the body, you must present an Argument section that thoroughly supports the assertions
made in the thesis statement with the use of analysis and comprehensively developed subpoints
and academic research. Each body paragraph must address one issue and directly relate it to the
thesis statement. Information must clearly relate to the main topic.
Within the body, the Conclusion must summarize the main headings of the paper. The
Conclusion should not contain any new research.

The Research Paper: Final Assignment must also be well-organized.
The Research Paper: Final Assignment must include APA formatted headings. Headings
should be provided in the following places:
1. Introduction (Use the title of your paper as the Introduction heading. Pursuant to the APA
format, do not use the word ?Introduction.?);
2. Argument (The argument headings should be headings that directly show your arguments
for each section of the argument); and
3. Conclusion.
Reference Page
The Reference Page must include at least 5 scholarly sources published within the last five years.
The sources must be cited both in the body of the paper as well as in the Reference Page.
Biblical references do not count toward the citation requirement.
The Reference Page must be prepared in APA format.

The second step of the Research Paper Assignment is for you to write the Research Paper:
Annotated Outline Assignment. The annotated outline is a tool used by criminal justice
professionals to provide an outline of a research paper while incorporating annotations of the
research used to support the thesis.
INSTRUCTIONS
After selecting a criminal justice topic for the Research Paper: Final Assignment and
submitting your Research Paper: Thesis Assignment on the topic you chose, you will prepare
the Research Paper: Annotated Outline Assignment of your Research Paper Assignment.
Your annotated outline must fully support each facet of your thesis.
The Research Paper: Annotated Outline Assignment must provide a detailed blueprint of the
Research Paper: Final Assignment in current APA format and contain the following
components:
1. Thesis
2. Three Main Headings
3. Two Subpoints Per Main Heading (at least)
a. An APA citation in each subpoint.
b. 3?5 sentences for each subpoint. These sentences must explain the academic
resource and how it will be used to support your thesis.
4. A Reference Page.
The three main headings must provide an argument about your topic rather than ask a question.
When read alone, the three main headings must show what your Research Paper: Final
Assignment will be arguing.
One of the three main headings and its subsequent subpoints must incorporate a biblical
worldview and provide a Scripture reference.
The three main headings must be supported with at least 2 subpoints each. The subpoints must
each be 3?5 sentences and accompanied by a current APA citation of an academic resource for
each subpoint.
The Research Paper: Annotated Outline Assignment must include a reference page with 5
academic resources published within the last 5 years and composed using current APA
formatting.
The Research Paper: Annotated Outline Assignment must be written in outline format. The
Research Paper: Annotated Outline Assignment should not be written in a research
paper/rough draft format.

Even though Marijuana is less harmful than alcohol and tobacco, which are already legal, Marijuana should not be legal, since DUI Crime rates have increased significantly in many states. This is supported by the fact that In Colorado, the number of traffic fatalities where a driver tested positive for any cannabinoid (Delta 9 or any other metabolite) increased 140%, from 55 in 2013 to 132 in 2019.
