Critical commentary or a critical analysis paper. A critical commentary is basically your chance to evaluate a referenced work by drawing in on aspects that you may agree with, and offering a critique for the points that you may feel have not been expressed correctly. For instance, you may be asked to identify bias, consider the context of the text and propose an alternative depiction of the issue.

A critical commentary involves exploring a particular social issue and evaluating its effects and consequences. It should take the form of the development of an argument from your own standpoint; that is, your own opinion based on your informed understanding of the issue and with an appropriate evidence base to substantiate your view. Ordinarily it would be a concise statement produced from the kind of conceptual plan that is the subject of coursework 1, except in this case you will choose one of the topics from phase two of the module: Crime and Social Stratification for the critical commentary. First you will choose your broad topic area, for example age and crime or gender and crime, and then you will need to focus on a specific issue within that area. Please note this assignment is NOT AN ESSAY. If you write it as a typical essay you will be marked down.
