Social Reform Movement Project - Content Info
The goal of this project is to use your research to tell a narrative story about your topic. The specific information you include in your final animation will vary depending on the story you choose to tell. There are some common topics you should focus your research on, however, including:
- Who were the main people involved in your movement? What motivated them to start this movement or become involved?
- When and where did your movement take place? Think both about the range of dates in which your movement occurred as well as the specific dates of important events.
- What were some of the important events in your movement?
- What did the people in your movement believe and why?
- What problems was your movement trying to address and why did your movement's supporters think their solutions were good?
- How popular was your movement? Who supported it and why? Who was opposed to it and why?
- How did your movement begin? Did it end and if so, when and why?
- What has been the legacy of your movement? Has there been a long-term impact?
You don't need to address all of these questions in your research and you might have other questions that you develop based on your initial reading.
