Welcome to the Troubles of Youth Wiki!


This is the Wiki website for the Troubles of Youth unit, taught in the Department of Sociology, Manchester Metropolitan University. Currently, the site is fairly basic, but please feel free to contact me if there is something you wish to add.

Unit Announcements


 Next Two Weeks (23rd February and 2nd March)


We have, for a few reasons, had to change the running order for the next couple of weeks: this will now be as follows:

23rd February - The seminar will address the next piece of coursework: we will run through what the aim of the coursework is, what you need to be including in the report, and good places to carry out your research. The lecture will address Drug Use and Young People.


As soon as the coursework marks and feedback are ready, you will receive the feedback sheets through your MMU student email account.


2nd March - In the seminar, Chris will give his students the opportunity to discuss their first piece of coursework with him, and will give a joint feedback session for everyone at 3pm. Dan will arrange some office hours to do the same with his students (I have to be away from the university on the 2nd March).




Please read the following documents in preparation for the seminar on Monday


Evaluation Seminar Outline and Guidance.doc


Home Office "British Experience of Scared Straight"  



 Coursework Advice can be found HERE. Please note that despite what it says in the Unit Outline, the word length for the assessments is 2500 words. Chris has also prepared a powerpoint presentation that is useful: it is availableHERE 



Seminar Groups:

Please click HERE to get a full list of the groups - this was lasted updated on Monday 13th October at 10.50am. It is important you check - you may have been moved from the group you signed up for. If anyone asks, the unit is now FULL.




The coursework schedule is as follows: Coursework One: 9.2.09 : Coursework Two: 20.04.09



As it stands, the wikisite has three sections


  1. Unit Administration - this contains lecture outlines, class times and details of assessments etc.

  2. Lecture Notes - this contains files of brief lecture notes.

  3. Seminar Materials - this contains readings, questions and other material relating to seminars
