Critically evaluate and identify the key issues surrounding the statement made by protesting prisoner Alan Lord as a slogan during the 1990 Strangeways riot: “the sentence justifies the crime, but the years don’t because it (the treatment of prisoners) is barbaric” and discuss with reference to academic literature sources.
Word Limit: 2000 words including in-text referencing, excluding footnotes and bibliography.
How to submit:
Ensure that you consult your individual module guides for details on individual assessments.
The assignment itself should be in Arial font size 11 and in double line spacing to allow for the markers’ comments.
Your name must not appear on your assignment. All assessed coursework is marked anonymously using your student registration number on your ID card. Your student registration number and module name should appear on every page of your essay and each page should be numbered. This is best achieved by use of the header and footer tool. You are also required to put your student registration number and module title in the file name of your assignment when submitting on StudyNet (e.g. Crime and Deviance 14043489.doc).
Your word count must appear at the end of your work.
Do not exceed the word limit in relation to your answer by more than 10%. If you do, then your mark will be capped at 40%.
The word count for coursework will include in-text referencing but will NOT include footnotes or the bibliography. However, footnotes must not include material that should be in the body of the answer or be used as a means to circumvent the word count.
Late Submission of Coursework
Submission deadlines are not flexible. Students should submit their work well in advance of the deadline (ideally several hours) to be sure of a reliable internet connection and sufficient upload time. Work submitted at any point (including seconds) after the deadline is recorded as a late submission and will be capped.
All students must note that failure to submit coursework by the dates and time specified has SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. The penalties for late submission of coursework are:
a. Coursework (including deferred coursework, but with the exception of referred coursework) relating to modules at Levels 0, 4, 5 and 6, submitted up to one (1) week after the published deadline will receive a maximum numeric grade of 40.
b. Coursework (including deferred coursework, but with the exception of referred coursework) relating to modules at Level 7 submitted up to one (1) week after the published deadline will receive a maximum numeric grade of 50.
c. Referred coursework submitted after the published deadline will be awarded a grade of zero (0). (Unless there is an agreed extension to the deadline or there are Serious Adverse Circumstances) 1 Students should note that in Microsoft Word, if the reference mark (footnote number) is inside the punctuation mark, then the punctuation gets counted as a new work. If the reference mark is outside the punctuation mark, then it will not be counted. E.g. He said 1. = 3 words; He said 1, = 3 words; He said. 1 = 2 words; He said, 1 = 2 words.
d. Coursework (including deferred coursework) submitted later than one (1) week after the published deadline will be awarded a grade of zero (0). (Unless there is an agreed extension to the deadline or there are Serious Adverse Circumstances)
All quotations from, or use of other writers’ work must be properly referenced- that is, you must give the author, title, and date of publication of the work concerned, and the page or section number of the passage quoted or cited. Reference style should remain consistent throughout each submitted essay.
Your coursework answer should be properly referenced using the Harvard Referencing System.
You should include a full bibliography at the end of your work.
