Built on the philosophy of rehabilitation and treatment rather than retribution and punishment, the key of the juvenile justice system is to deter delinquency before adolescents make their way into the harsher adult system. The purpose of Juvenile Justice: An Active-Learning Approach is to provide an in-depth exploration of the United States juvenile justice system and the response from police, courts, and correctional institutions to crimes committed by juveniles, as well as the strategies used to deter these crimes. Using an active-learning approach, renowned authors Frank Schmalleger and Cathy Marcum provide students with a foundational understanding of the juvenile justice system, while also giving them with the opportunity to put what they learn into action—increasing their ability to comprehend and retain information and to carefully analyze the juvenile justice system.
· Taking a practical, evidence-based approach, this text explores critical, modern topics with a unique chapter on Juveniles and Cybercrime, which discusses cyberbullying, cyberstalking, child pornography, and digital piracy.
· Humanizing the individuals involved in the juvenile justice system, each chapter opens with a vignette to highlight a contemporary issue for that particular subject.
· Case studies appear in each chapter, offering real-world examples of juvenile court cases and accompanying questions to encourage further discussion.
· A variety of active-learning exercises, some individual and some group, are provided to engage students in the material. All the active learning assignments included in the text were developed by the authors to engage students within their own classrooms (where ground or electronic), and have proven to be very effective at fostering long-term knowledge about various topics related to juvenile justice.
