Collective Behavior And Social Movements

  • Section One: Describe the different forms of collective behavior, and explain why people participate in collective behavior. Is all collective behavior bad for society? Why or why not?
  • Section Two: Analyze a current social movement of your choice according to the sociological principles and findings from your reading this week. Are some social movements an indication of the climate in society? Why or why not?
  • Section Three: Your textbook this week discussed an analysis of the Nazis and ISIS to help explain how social movements can recruit people to do evil. Can you fit the analysis into groupthink and dehumanization into the analysis?
