The paper will review recent (in the last decade) empirical research to outline the history and development of the policy and discuss its effects, implications, and unintended consequences. Recommendations for the future will also be required. The paper should adhere to strict APA style (including in-text citations and reference list, punctuation, grammar, writing style) and include at least five (5) empirical, peer reviewed sources (beyond those readings that are required for the class). Do not submit a paper that you have submitted to another class.

The paper will be labeled as Introduction as the first header, then Description of Policy as the second header and so on as mentioned below in the outline:

1. Introduction
• introduce the topic (problem and policy)
• explain why it’s important/relevant
• provide an outline of your paper (“this paper will…”)
2. Description of policy
• What policy are you describing?
• Briefly describe the ‘gist’ of the policy (requirements/provisions etc); what does it set out to do
3. Identify the problem/need
• Eg. Violence in schools? Dating violence? Unprepared high school graduates? Teen pregnancy?

5. Evaluation of policy
• Is the policy warranted? (from the research)
• Has it worked? How do you know?
• Has it had any unintended consequences? (moral panic?)
• If it’s too new to have been evaluated, has it worked elsewhere? Do you think it will work? Explain why.
6. Recommendations
• What would make it better? How could it be improved? Are other jurisdictions (states, counties, countries?) doing things differently/better?
• What does the literature suggest?
• What do you suggest?
• What would it take to implement these changes?
