1. Share a topic you would like to research and why.
How likely is it that a first-time offending criminal will become a repeat offender after going through a rehabilitation program while incarcerated versus a criminal who does not go through a program while incarcerated? I used to work at a maximum-security prison in California. We had a rehabilitation program that offenders could go through if they chose to do so. It was completely voluntary. However, if they successfully completed the program then they would get a reduced sentence. I ended up moving out of state before I could be there long enough to see how many of the inmates were successful in not returning to crime, but I have always wondered the impact that these programs can have. Review the research methods in Chapter 2 (2.2) and share which research method you would use for your research study and why.  Be sure to carefully consider the method you choose.  I would use a combination of the Archival Research Method and the Longitudinal Research Method. for this particular study. Share the advantages and disadvantages of your chosen method and what you would need to be aware of ethically in your approach. I think the archival research method would be beneficial because in order to find out my question, I would need to look at previous data to compare to and that is exactly what archival research offers. Another advantage of this method is that it is cheap which means a better possibility for it to be funded. “Longitudinal research is a research design in which data-gathering is administered repeatedly over an extended period of time.” (Spielman et al., 2017: 50). This would also be great because it gives me time to see if an offender will repeat and if not, how long they stay out of the justice system for. However, one disadvantage of the archival research method is that there is no consistency over the data previously collected which could be problematic for this study. (Spielman et al., 2017). A disadvantage to the longitudinal method is that although time is what I would need, it would still be difficult to keep track of each individual through that timeframe.   Reference: Spielman, R.M., Dumper, K., Jenkins, W., Lacombe, A., Lovett, M.,
