#17 Eliciting complete and accurate testimony from child witnesses

Questioning a child witness, for example in a case of suspected sexual abuse, is challenging.

In this paper I will show that effectively interviewing a child witness takes training, and I will cite recommendations from Korkman on what to do and not do when questioning a child witness.

Sources to Consult

Korkman, J. (2008). Failing to keep it simple: Language use in child sexual abuse interviews with 3-8-year-old children. Psychology, Crime & Law, 14(1), 41-60.


Granhag, P., Vrij, A., & Verschuere, B. (2015). Detecting deception: Current challenges and cognitive approaches (Wiley series in psychology of crime, policing, and law). Chapter 1.


This rubric is posted as a file at the moment please make sure to follow the rubric and also you did the summary and the draft thing for me last time so you can check that out and let that guide you

The topics below are more than just topics; they include a claim, and at times an introduction to

that claim. Your task will be to convince the reader of the claim. You should copy the claim in

the first paragraph of your paper as your thesis statement. The point is though, that you stick to

the task that you have been assigned and do not write a general paper “about” the topic.

You MUST use the sources that are listed along with each claim and should be able to write the

paper just using those sources. If you want to use additional sources, check with me first.

Unlike the presentation, you each will write your own paper. Since you are researching and

presenting the topic with your partner, it is likely that the content of your paper will be similar

to that of your partner. That’s fine. However, the writing of the actual paper must be your own:

You convince the reader of the thesis statement, using your own words at all times.

You will upload your paper electronically on Canvas where the paper will be checked for

plagiarism with help of Turnitin.

Your paper must be 1500 – 2000 words in length, or 6 – 8 pages not including Works Cited. 12-

point Times New Roman font. Show word number at end of your paper (before

References/Works Cited)

Your paper must meet the standards of a college level paper, both in content and in terms of

writing mechanics. Be sure to include a Works Cited section and to cite your sources properly in

the text. (MLA or APA style are both fine.)
