Students will complete a research paper. Here, you will identify an issue from our text. For example, chapter six examines interrogations and confessions. On the surface this two areas may seem straightforward, however after observation you will learn some people confess to crimes they did not commit. Also, what are some variables associated with interrogations? Here, you could examine race, income or even the psychology behind interrogations. Chapter eight is another chapter that is full of possible research topics.
