I was thinking of black lives matter movement. The old movement and the moment now.

The Plan of Action

Identify 3 elements that are similar between the selected historical movement and the current movement/issue. The purpose of this activity it to enable you to understand how valuable social movements contribute to the development of our democracy as a nation.

The goal is to connect the past movements to the current movement/issue. Please note, social movements have stages. Some of your issues might be already in a stage.

The Structure

We will be developing a comparison essay following the “point-by-point” structure. You will use content from the unit (from week 5) and your researched information. Focus on the similarities (not differences)

For example, the structured outline will look like this,

Introduction: General information about BOTH AIM and Standing Rock

Thesis: The 3 similarities between AIM and Standing Rock are the protection of indigenous land, treaties and health.

Body Paragraph 1. The protection of indigenous land

A. AIM

B. Standing Rock

Body Paragraph 2. The protection of indigenous treaties

A. AIM

B. Standing Rock

Body Paragraph 3. The protection of indigenous health

A. AIM

B. Standing Rock

Conclusion: Final Thoughts

The Requirements

    1. FIVE paragraphs. An introduction, 3 body paragraphs and a conclusion.
    2. A work cited page with all your used sources. A minimum of 4 sources must be applied. However, I suspect most will have more. The most important thing to ensure all information is properly cited to avoid plagiarism claims by Vericite. Therefore, anytime we have facts about anything, such as numbers, statistics, claims, names, paraphrasing or quotes, we must properly cite the source.
    3. Read the rubric.
    4. Due on Monday of Week 7
