SOCIAL MOVEMENT

SOCIAL MOVEMENT

You are to examine one movement, and only one movement, as a sociologist. What does that mean exactly? First, it means you are to examine the movement you choose in the context of it being an engine of social change. This is not a topic paper! This is a serious look at the movement you have chosen using a sociological model to explain it. You therefore need to understand the concepts associated with why social movements occur and what type of movement it is ). You should also be choosing a national or international movement rather than something local or new. This step would constituted the introduction and thesis associated with the paper. Second, it means you are to discuss the history and stages of growth of the movement using the 4 stage mode. Third, you are to determine how that movement affected the way institutions (here or elsewhere) function. In that sense you would be examining the impact your movement had on societal institutions (such as education, politics, family, or the economy as examples). This would be the remaining part of the body of your paper. Finally, in terms of other impacts (see orders of impact starting on page 10 in Weinstein) you need to consider whether or not it created new societal norms, values, and practices. This would constitute the conclusion to your paper (which should be several paragraphs). I am expected to use 5 scholarly sources (journal articles, books, and government data) NO GOOGLE! Estimated paper length is a minimum of five (5) pages and a maximum of seven (7) pages of text using correct APA format. Your cover page, abstract and reference page do not apply to the page count.
