Week 4 – Assignment
Principles of Effective Intervention
There are four general principles of effective intervention that have become organizing concepts of community corrections. They have stimulated what has become known as the “what works” movement. Write a paper outlining the four general principles of the “what works” movement.
Thesis: Your thesis (which is part of your first paragraph) should list the four principles of the effective intervention.
Body: The body of your paper (your entire paper excluding the thesis and conclusion) should give a thoughtful analysis of the four general principles of effective intervention in a sequential order. Explain what the principles mean. Look for examples. Determine if the principles are effective. Explain why the principles either are, or are not, effective.
Conclusion: The conclusion (which is part of the last paragraph) should, at the very least, restate the thesis.
The paper must be four pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least three scholarly resources from the Ashford University Library, other than the textbook, to support your claims. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
