Making use of textbook notes, the film Blackboard Jungle, and Jason Barnosky’s article The Violent Years: Responses to Juvenile Crime, please write a paper in which you do the following:
Blackboard Jungle Film Analysis Paper
Utilizing the film and Barnosky’s interpretation of the historical evidence, write a paper in which you use The Violent Years: Responses to Juvenile Crime (see attached pdf) to explore the composition, causes, and responses to 1950s juvenile delinquency. In your analysis please (1) outline the various causes of juvenile delinquency according the both conservative and progressive pundits, (2) explore the proposed solutions offered by both of these groups, and (3) offer your informed opinion on why the film Blackboard Jungle centralizes its critique using an urban, multi-ethnic milieu and seems conservative in regards to the solutions offered. [The third part of the essay is the only place in which you should offer a personal opinion or use I in your analysis.]
HINT: Foner’s chapter 24 engages with the Baby Boomers, youth culture, and mothers at work in 1950. The best papers will engage with Foner’s text in connecting these issues to the theme of juvenile delinquency.
Please remember to cite quotations and paraphrases.
Your paper should be insightful, specific in its references, easy to follow in structure, and clear and consistent in style. Please follow a basic essay format (introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion). Additionally, your paper should be 1,000 ñ 1,250 words (4 to 5 double-spaced/one-inch margins); have 12-point Times New Roman font and be double-spaced, have 1-inch margins, and be proofread.
