  2. Define and discuss Howard Becker’s “Labeling Theory.” Include a discussion of rule-breaking behavior and “becoming deviant.” For this question, draw on your field activity from Module 2, as well as Chapter 3 in Adler and Adler (pp 40-45).
  3. Discuss Merton’s theory of deviance (pp 78-88 in Adler & Adler): How can this theory be seen as a pull between opposing forces in the social structure, rather than the decisions of individuals?
  4. Discuss the three primary data sources for studying deviant behavior (Module 3) and explain the strengths and weaknesses of each of these data sources, as well as their corresponding research methods.
  5. Find two (2) academic research articles about deviant behavior. Summarize these articles and discuss the research methods that the author used to answer his/her research questions.
