Why are some social/religious protests more successful?

This lesson looks at The Civil Rights Movement and The New Christian Right. It considers why one was more successful in bringing about social change than the other, whilst leaning on the work of Steve Bruce to attempt to explain this disparity. The lesson starts by asking students to consider key extracts from the Declaration of Independence to get them thinking about the nature of American Society and then sets students off on an investigation into the 2 movements. After students have presented their findings there is an evaluation and discussion task to consider why one was more successful than the other - using Bruce. The final 2 slides are repeats from the first lesson in the series (Weber) to add to notes around religion as a force for change and to re-iterate the homework/prep/independent learning tasks which students should carry out throught the unit (typically each unit lasts a fortnight). This lesson is planned for 100 minutes and uses Webb, Westergaard, Trobe and Townend Book 2.
