Prompt: For your final assignment in this class, you will focus on one aspect of homicide or crime in Chicago. You will research this topic thoroughly and produce a digital project. Now that you’ve had some time to think generally about crime in Chicago and now that you’ve seen the types of information contained in the Chicago Homicide Database, what specific topics or aspects of law and order in Chicago interest you? Why? How have your interests changed—if they’ve changed—from your second written assignment to now? What questions do you have about crime in Chicago? Do you think the database can help you answer those questions? How? What do you hope to learn?
