Topic #1 (Due Module 3)Write
a paper that addresses the societal effects of cybercrime on a
population. You may choose the audience that you are addressing. For
example, the audience could be a group of senior citizens where are
you describing the impacts of identity theft. Or, in another example,
you are addressing a group of middle- and high-school students and
addressing the impacts of online bullying and hate-speech on social
media. I’d recommend you start by choosing an audience, then
connect an impact
purpose of these assignments is to provide you with opportunities to
think about the course material while expanding upon the course
are free to approach the topics any way you wish. Your
position itself will be not be graded. That is, it does not matter
whether you agree or disagree with the professor or other students.
What does matter is how well you make your case. Experience indicates
that a good essay will define important terms (don’t assume
your reader either knows what you are talking about or shares your
perceptions and definitions).
strength of your paper is assessed in terms of both the logic of your
position and how well your points are supported by reference to data
and the literature. Again, students are free to use any style or
approach with which they are comfortable. For students not knowing
how to begin, the five-paragraph essay format is often especially
appropriate. In this format, you develop an essay of five paragraphs.
The first is an introduction that tells the reader what you will
cover and defines key terms. The second through fourth provide
support for the position announced in the first, and the last is a
summary and restatement of the position.
quotes are not appropriate for this assignment. Paraphrased ideas or
citing general support can be noted by simply identifying the source
(e.g., Yar and Steinmetz). Specificity is valued, so if you rely on a
work that appears in the book, try to cite the specific author(s),
rather than the author of the book (for example, Reynes, or Reynes in
Yar and Steinmetz).
keep in mind the following points:1.
The papers are to be double-spaced with Times New Roman 12-point font
and 1-inch margins.

In addition to the quality of your response, your answers will be

You are encouraged to use outside sources for your paper in addition
to the course material. You must include it in a reference page for
outside sources. Students not knowing where to begin finding
appropriate sources should consult the KSU Library webpage at
