Essay assessment criteria
BEST WAY TO REDUCE YOUTH CRIME: topic relevance vs. topic support
Firstly, offenders who spend longer time in prison have more time to receive help and to rehabilitate themselves. Someone who has committed a serious crime should get time to rethink their actions and try to change their behavior. Community service can really help the offender to concentrate on work and doing a meaningful job that serves others changes people’s perspective on life itself. In addition to this, in jail criminals can educate and improve themselves as human beings, thus they can understand that there are more sides to life, not criminal world only.
Criteria for CONTENT
1. Relevance: ideas off the topic or on the topic?
2. Are they supported?
3. Clear or ambiguous ideas? Are they clearly expressed or not?

Topic
Some people think that the best way to reduce YOUTH crime is to give harsher punishments. Others, however, believe there are better alternative ways of reducing rates of adolescent crime
BEST WAY TO REDUCE YOUTH CRIME: are ideas on/off the topic?
Firstly, the longer sentence in juvenile prisons could be a solution if those institutions were more suited to the needs of the youth.
However, other people think that it would be a wrong idea to give offenders a longer punishment time, especially to the ones who have committed a minor crime.
First of all, teenagers’ crime is increasing because of the high divorce rate, problems in relationships.
BEST WAY TO REDUCE YOUTH CRIME: topic relevance vs. topic support
Giving harsher punishments has advantages and disadvantages .But i do not think that longer prison time will change anything .Also if we choose to give bigger fines to young criminals it doesn't change much because it will affect parent's financials.
Thirdly, as we all know parents make a great impact on their children. They should always provide caring environment and educate youth early in life on the consequences of the wrong choices. If teenagers see their fathers or mothers as role models they probably will never do something that their parents would not.
BEST WAY TO REDUCE YOUTH CRIME:
Supported and unsupported arguments
To begin with, most of youngsters crimes are the reflect by the family they are living in. If we look at the researches we will see that most of these kids parents are divorced, have serious relationship problems or have abuse to alcohol or even drugs. The example which is shown to their children occur the crimes. So, the solution in this example cannot be harsher punishments, because it will not solve the real, main problem.

What is more, the most common crimes of youth today are occured by the need of money. Government should find some ways how to provide youngsters a possibility to earn money, because in our society it is really hard to find a job when you are under 18. Furthermore, some families cannot even properly feed their children, so what can we say about their other needs? Thus, job centres for youth could be one of the most important steps while reducing the numbers of young peoples crimes.

Lexical competence: range, register, accuracy
Moreover, the government should take a look at the very roots of youth crime. There is a lack of free and accessible places where adolescents could spend their free time. Creating youth centres, sport facilities could be a solution to reducing the youth crime rate. If schools are not able to deal with problematic youth, these facilities can provide a safe and non-judgemental environment.

Range and accuracy of grammatical structures
First of all, a lot of the young criminals are raised in anti-social families as researchers state. Stealing and illegal business are their ways to get some money to survive. Instead of punishing this type of youth, government should found training centres so they could teach the adolescent how to live with not breaking the laws.
Range and accuracy of grammatical structures
First of all before giving harsher punishments we should consider what need to be done to reduce levels of youth crime .We should create more youth centres , build sport facilities to involve them in some activity.Also parents need to educate youth early in life on the consequences of the wrong choises.
