Overview
For this activity, you will consider how your popular culture example could expand our understanding of different cultures and people. You will also suggest ways that critical analysis can be used to meet personal and professional goals. This activity contributes to your draft of the critical analysis section of your project. It also provides an opportunity to obtain valuable feedback from your instructor that you can incorporate into your project submission.
Directions
In this activity, you will work on the second part of the critical analysis of your example within an area of popular culture. You should consider the feedback from your instructor on the previous activities to inform this assignment. Throughout the writing process, you will support your analysis with reliable evidence from varied sources. You should continue to gather the sources you will integrate into your project. These sources will include two resources from the module resources sections of this course and two resources that you find through your own research using the Shapiro Library. It may be beneficial to identify more than the number of sources required for the project so that you can eventually choose the most useful and credible ones. For this activity, you will assess how the popular culture example you chose could broaden an outsider’s understanding of the cultures or people that engage with it. You will also describe how an element of your chosen example reflects your field of study or profession. Finally, you will recommend strategies for using critical analysis skills for meeting personal and professional goals.
You are not required to address each item below the rubric criteria, but you may use them to better understand the criteria and guide your thinking.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Integrate reliable evidence from varied sources throughout your paper to support your analysis.It is important to draw from a more diverse pool of perspectives from varied sources to support the analysis, which is different from the Citations and Attributions rubric criterion.
Reliable evidence from varied sources should be interwoven throughout the paper itself. Citing and attributing sources will be represented as APA in-text citations and a reference list at the end of your work.
You will be evaluated on both criteria.
Assess how the example you chose could broaden an outsider’s understanding of the cultures or societies depicted in it or the people who engage with its popular culture area.
An “outsider” is someone who is not part of a culture or society connected to a particular area of popular culture.
Consider how the example you chose could contribute to understanding others in productive ways that do not reinforce negative representations of other people. Describe how the example you chose reflects an aspect of your field of study or profession.
Recommend strategies for using this kind of critical analysis for meeting your personal and professional goals.Consider the skills you have developed in the process of doing critical analysis as strategies for understanding your goals. How might those skills be used to address issues in wellness? How could they be used to address the day-to-day responsibilities or questions faced by yourself as well as practitioners in your field or discipline?
What to Submit
Submit your short paper as a 2-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Sources should be cited according to APA style. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.

Since March of 2020, it seems the world has been turned upside down first with the Corona Virus and the egregious cost to BIPOC communities. The unjust killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Abery ignited millions of people to march with the Black Lives Matter Movement to demand complete systemic change. We have just all found ourselves at the unexpected crossroads between an old world and a newly emerging world. We find ourselves stepping into a mythological crossroads begging for a change in the great narrative of humanity. Meade calls this a “Kairos Moment” in his book, The Genius Myth on pg 56-57:

Since March of 2020, it seems the world has been turned upside down first with the Corona Virus and the egregious cost to BIPOC communities. The unjust killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Abery ignited millions of people to march with the Black Lives Matter Movement to demand complete systemic change. We have just all found ourselves at the unexpected crossroads between an old world and a newly emerging world. We find ourselves stepping into a mythological crossroads begging for a change in the great narrative of humanity. Meade calls this a “Kairos Moment” in his book, The Genius Myth on pg 56-57:
Change, which is the only constant thing in this world, happens in the flash of a moment. People can prepare for a great change and make careful plans, and yet, in order to make the change, all preparations and expectations must be released in favor of the flash of vision and inspiration. Of course, ancient people had a name for that moment when time stands still when the usual forces are suspended and almost anything can happen. In Sanskrit, the opportune moment was called ksana, “or the flash in time, the inspired instant.” In Greek, the moment that becomes momentous was called Kairos. The Kairos moment opens before us and we must become swift as a bird or else miss out on the opportunity to slip past the guardians and ride through the gates of time. Kairos names the moment of sweeping change that arrives “just in the nick of time” and turns everything around. The opportune moment is a crack in time in which, a breach in the march of time in which the eternal enters and redeems us from certain doom. The ancient Greeks had two primary words for time: kronos and kairos. Kronus referred to sequential time, the “chronological” order of time marching on; the arrow of linear time always moving forward. Thus, time waits for no one. Kronos is quantifiable and measurable time; the hourglass emptying out, the end of time coming ever closer and closer. Kairos referred to a different order of time altogether, a timeless stretch that cannot be scheduled ahead of time. Whereas kronos stands for quantitative time, Kairos time is qualitative by nature. Under the unforgiving rule of kronos, we have to be on time, do our time, and pay our dues. When we are under the influence of Kairos, time opens up before us, there is a break in time as something timeless and beyond time enters and alters the world around us. The Kairos moment arrives when it will, when the time is just right when things become more possible and life is ripe for change. Kairos is the mythic moment, that is the end and beginning at once, when the hard pulse of time becomes “once upon a time,” and past, present, and future secretly converse with one another, (56-57).
If you were to analyze our culture, why could you call these last few years the time of Kairos? What opportunity has Covid, BLM, and all the other large events of these unprecedented times presented to us? What were some of the structures of our society, of our species, that clearly needed to be re-visioned? Think of Inanna lending her ear to the Great Below, or the Child Archetype of Kirakou arriving just when we had become complacent in our unsustainable practices. Does Allegory of the Cave come to mind with the veil of illusion seems to have dropped? What is this Kairos moment trying to teach us? How have you found yourself growing or deepening? How has your genius met this Kairos moment?
Your paper should be a minimum of three pages. Please quote from within the class readings or media at least three times. Your paper needs to have a works cited page. The paper is one-part personal journey and one-part conversation with ideas presented in Meade, Paris, Jung, Kimmerer, Kiriakou, “The People Could Fly” and Mythic Journeys, and one-part analysis of the changing times. How are these writers helping you to discover the writing on the walls of your heart?

Research a government official (other than a police officer) who has been charged with ethics violations. We hear a lot of media about police officers, but I want you to look at ethic violations in other areas in criminal justice

CJ 3311 ETHICS IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE
Assignment 1 Instructions
Research a government official (other than a police officer) who has been charged with ethics violations. We hear a lot of media about police officers, but I want you to look at ethic violations in other areas in criminal justice. You are all in criminal justice because something intrigued you about it. Find something that appeals to your sense of injustice in the system and take a good look at it. This could be a politician accused of taking bribes, an appointee by the president, judge, etc. You may also use an unethical violation during a trial. It could be misconduct by a judge, prosecutor, or defense attorney. (Example: There have been accusations of defense attorneys falling asleep during a capital murder trial where their client faces the death sentence.) These fit the situations of what would you do? It must be recent, within the last 7 years. Outline the charges or ethical dilemma that existed and explain the issues in terms of the ethics associated with the Criminal Justice system. FULLY discuss the implications and the outcome of the situation if it is resolved. Make sure you choose an official that has had enough reports and enough research information to produce a quality paper.
This is to be a research paper reporting on the information you have found as well as an exercise for you to analyze issues you have identified in criminal justice. Be objective while developing options to address the issues. Use text concepts to explain your decision and what ethical system influenced your decision. You can do this. Find a case that interests you.
This is a fun project that gives you the opportunity to select an issue you find in the criminal justice system and work out what your solution would be for the facts surrounding the facts.
Base your paper making sure to address the following areas:
1. Identify the dilemma and relevant events;
2. Describe who may be impacted by the dilemma or should be considered in the decision making;
3. Identify all of the options/choices that are possible to address this dilemma (note that not all these choices have to be realistic or good —part of this exercise is thinking through all of the possible ways to solve a problem. I am not grading you on if it is the right choice;
4. Describe the consequences of each choice/option, including how these carious choices affect other people impacted by the decision;
5. Identify the decision you would make; and
6. Justify your decision
A large part of your grade is identifying these six areas of your paper.
This research paper has a minimum acceptable requirement of 6 full research content pages. That is not including the cover sheet or the reference page. It must be 6 FULL pages according to the instructions on “written papers” described in the Syllabus. Remember, SIX pages is minimum and would be an average paper. (Average is “C”). Anything under 6 pages starts you with a D and goes down accordingly.
