Session 372: QL3 -> Coverage and Relevance of Juvenile Justice Topics in Introduction to Criminal Justice Textbooks: A Content Analysis
Time: 2:40PM to 4:10 PM on Friday, November 21
Place: Plaza 5
Session Chair: Myrna Cintron, Prairie View A&M University
The objectie of this panel is to systematically analyze the current status of juvenile justice issues as these are covered in eleen textbooks for Introduction to Criminal Justice. The selection of both introductory textbooks and juvenile justice issues is important for several reasons. Introductory textbooks provide an overview of important topics in the discipline; they familiarize students with basic concepts and ideas and they synthesize the basic knowledge in the discipline. Juvenile justice, despite being an intergral component of the justice system, has generally received limited coverage in introductory textbooks.
