    STEP 1: Select a current social movement and complete research about its lifecycle. Research information about the movement’s origin, its purpose, goals, etc.

    STEP 2: Create a diagram/infographic of the social movement. Include information about its roots, purpose, and goals, and note how these fit into and evolve with the movement’s lifecycle. Either in the poster, or included in a separate explanatory paragraph, describe each stage of all the lifecycles discussed in the module, even if the social movement has not completed the entire lifecycle. Make predictions for the future of your chosen movement. Include proper APA citations (with at least two sources) either in the infographic or on a separate page.

    Helpful links for making infographics or posters:
