POINTS: Up to 10 DUE: Friday, September 28 at class time LENGTH: About 300-400 words In class today, you heard a bit of advice: When in trouble, STFU!! It was presented with humor, but--especially for those of us in criminal justice--it's a core principle. It was provided to my classes by James Newsome, formerly a resident of Stateville Correctional Center. It is also given to students by James Kluppelberg, when I've introduced him to students in Stateville. For this extra credit: 1) What do these two gentlemen have in common? 2) What does STFU mean in this context (you don't have to use the actual words if you don't want to--I'll know what you mean) and why is it "valuable advice?" 3) How much did James Newsome win from the City of Chicago for his experience? 4) What does this have to do with a class on research methods that focuses on "understanding cultures from the participants' point of view?" REMEMBER: YOU MUST PROVIDE *COMPLETE* citatations and (if internet search) full links. You can send it to me as an attachment or turn it hard copy with your papers in class on Friday, Sept 28.
