What are the key components/elements/parts of the theory and how are they defined or described? (5 points)
For example, if I believe low self-control or deviant peers explains criminal behavior I need to be sure to define/describe what these concepts are.
2. How does this theory suggest crime occurs? (5 points)
What is the hypothesis about crime that is derived from this theory?
Stated differently, how does this theory suggest that its’ major components described in the first question explain why crime happens? Be sure to be clear about how the major components of theory help us understand when crime is more or less likely to occur. Some theories may suggest that crime happens (or increases) when certain factors are present, whereas others may suggest crime decreases when certain factors are present. Many theories could explain both – but, you must accurately describe the expected relationship using the concepts correctly.
If any key scholars/researchers are listed in the textbook related to this theory be sure to mention them as contributors to the development of the theory.
3. Is this theory a macro or micro-level theory? Explain why. (5 points)
