Controversies in Corrections: Student Podcast Series

 In CJ 391: Corrections (WSU), students have the option to create their own Podcast or video on a controversial topic. Their Podcasts are posted here (with written permission) as an ongoing series called Controversies in Corrections. Each provides a brief overview of the topic, the arguments for and against the policy/practice, and the students' conclusion.

Research Methods
"Smart Tank" Team Projects

 In CJ 407: Introduction to Research Methods (WSU), students work together in teams towards a final project instead of a traditional final. They must develop a research proposal by drafting their recommended methodology to study an important social issue. The last class is then devoted towards the team's presentations of their proposed studies in a format similar to the show Shark Tank. Through their Smart Tank presentations, the teams must persuade the judges, which consist of Dr. Boppre and two community experts, that their project is worth funding/pursuing. Presentations are judged based upon teams' ability to convey the importance of their topic, the appropriateness of their chosen methodology, feasibility, and overall presentation style.
