Researching your own Social Movement

You and a partner will now have the opportunity to research your own social movement. You will complete tables like you recently did, but without the need to put in definitions.

Listed below are social movement web sites that will give you ideas and appropriate links. Once you have selected a topic and acquired approval from the instructor, copy and paste the Activity 3 - Social Movement Activity Sheet to a word document. Next, complete your research and fill in the tables and questions with the appropriate information. Do not forget to copy and paste the web addresses to the bibliography at the end of the activity sheet. Included in your bibliography are the title of the site, author (if available), date & time that you got your information.
