In a minimum of 300 words, name and explain the five risk factors identified as causes of gang membership. Your assignment must reflect at least five reference sources: your textbook and other scholarly materials (i.e., journal articles, magazines, newspaper articles, webpage, dictionaries, thesauruses, or encyclopedias.), APA formatted paragraphs with in-text citations, and an APA formatted reference list to receive full credit. References must be material within five years of the date of this class.
Do not submit any material without an author’s name or the original published date of the material. No author or dates (n.d.) material is acceptable. Also, no book information from other textbooks is acceptable as a reference source. Additionally, your assignment must be a WORD or PDF document for grading. Any coursework written in the add comment area on BlackBoard is not acceptable for grading.
If you are unfamiliar with the APA citation and format style, review the APA style information and APA Sample Discussion and Assignment folders under Course Information > Course Resources for guidance.
