Update: It looks Dan Choi continues to perform acts of civil diobedience, such as a few years ago in Russia, where he joined an LGBT Pride parade that was illegal. Here's more about his life after Don't Ask Don't Tell was repealed.

 

Welcome!

This guide will help you do research for Essay 2: Obedience and Resistance. At the end of the session today, I hope you'll:

Examples of civil disobedience:

  1. Examples from The Guardian
  2. Examples from American University
  3. Many examples from Wikipedia (Wikipedia is a good starting point, but it only a starting point!)

When you choose your social movement, note these facts, the classic "W"s of journalism:

  • who (who were the main people)
  • what (what were they protesting? What did they do?)
  • where (where did it happen?)
  • when (when did it happen?)
  • why (Why did it start? Why did it end?)

Below is the assignment from Professor Sheofsky.
