In class, we have talked about various criminological theories and theoretical frameworks. For this assignment, you will need to create an infographic on a pop culture individual who has engaged in criminal behavior and explain that behavior through a criminology theory or theoretical framework we have discussed in class.
Purpose: To verbally and visually explain criminal behavior using theory to help others to clearly understand criminological theories. Infographics aim to allow the reader to draw conclusions. This assignment is intended to enhance your analytic, writing, creative, and presentation skills through a nontraditional project – an infographic. An infographic is a visually appealing, easy-to-read flyer that presents data accurately and ethically. There are various free, easy-to-use online platforms, such as Canva, Pikochart, and Easelly.
Audience: You should target a general audience. People who may not know or understand research ethics like your parents or other friends. Due to this, you must include enough information to inform the public on your unethical research study.
