Introduction: Movements create change in the world. You will find out and learn about movements, specifically one social-political movement that you choose to study.
Vocabulary hint: Used this way, an organization is any organized group of people with a particular purpose, such as a school, business, society, association, club, branch of government, etc.
Directions: You'll learn about movements each week through reading assignments and project pages. You will select a different movement that you want to explain to the class. You will study your movement and summarize facts and information. Then, you will show what you've learned by creating an infographic and presenting it to the class!
Complete the steps of the project:
- First Discussion: Explain the start and/or spread of a significant movement that you know about and that you want others to learn about, too. Use the questions below as a guide:
- How do social-political movements become popular? How do the ideas spread?
- Give an example of one movement: What was it? How did it start? How did others join in?
- Next, choose a movement and discuss what people did and why it mattered. Use the questions below as a guide (you do not need to answer them all).
- What was the movement about? What issue were people supporting or rebelling against? What change did people want to see?
- When and where did it happen? Is it over or continuing today?
- Who was an inspiring leader for the movement? What did this person do to motivate others to join the movement?
- What did the people do to show their support for this movement?
- How did the movement spread? How did people learn about it so they could join?
- Is there any history we should know about the movement?
- Do you think the movement made a difference in some way?
- Then, create an infographic using the Canva design website to provide information, explanations, and photos about the movement you selected.
- Design a presentation with your partner. Show your favorite posts to the class and explain each one. Organize your presentation with a main idea (thesis) about the significance of the movement. Each member of your group must speak during the presentation and each must show the class part of the infographic page. The presentation should be approximately 3-5 minutes long.
- Finally, check that your infographic page is complete and create a PUBLIC VIEW LINK to turn in your Canva page.
