Discuss the idea presented in the film and whether or not, based on what you have read and watched, american schools fulfill this dream.

After Watching The Lottery, consider the needs and goals of the families looking to enroll their children in the two schools. One father in particular, whose wife and first son live in Africa, have only come to America in hopes that their youngest son can attend a great school and get an education. This father talks about the incredible opportunities America can offer his son, and even states, “The American Dream is so wonderful.[2]” Yet the film presents this dream like a scam, as if the American Dream is a lottery just as is the chance of getting into a great school. Discuss the idea presented in the film and whether or not, based on what you have read and watched, American schools fulfill this dream.

Then, make objective observations about them.

I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​n this module, you learned about identity, groups, culture, prejudice, and stereotypes. You will apply that knowledge to the analysis of your advertisements. For this activity, you will focus on making objective observations about the groups and cultures in your advertisements.
PromptUse the provided Module Three Activity Template Word Document to complete this assignment. First, look closely at your four advertisements and identify the groups and/or cultures present in the ads. Then, make objective observations about them. Finally, reflect on how your beliefs, assumptions, and/or values may have impacted your analysis.
You are not required to answer each question below the rubric criteria, but may use them to better understand the criteria and guide your thinking.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Describe how groups and/or cultures are presented in all your advertisements.
Your analysis is limited to the people in your ads who form groups and/or represent various cultures. Remember, culture is not limited to race and ethnicity. You are not examining settings, logos, taglines, mood/tone, or any other element of the ads. Objectively describe the groups and/or cultures. What characteristics can you objectively observe using your senses?
In this step, do not make interpretations or judgements about the groups and/or cultures.
Describe the representation of stereotypes in all your​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ advertisements.
Your analysis is still limited to groups and cultures, but now examine your ads for the presence of stereotypes. You should refer to specific details in the ads that communicate a stereotype. If you do not believe stereotypes are present, you must explain why and provide examples from your ads to support your point.
Discuss how your beliefs, assumptions, and/or values may have influenced how you analyzed your advertisements.
As you’ve learned, your subjective perceptions of the social world are influenced by your attitudes and biases. Check in with yourself. Did you make any assumptions about the groups and/or cultures in your ads? Did past experiences influence how you interpreted the presence or absence of stereotypes?
Guidelines for Submission
Submit the Module Three Activity Template. While references are not required, if you reference sources in your responses, they should be cited according to APA style. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.
Please use this template for complete this course work

How mass protests end – the atlantic

P​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​art 1
Almost by definition, social justice movements are organized. They have distinct goals, identifiable and charismatic leadership, and clear claims to authority – just as traditional mass media rely on authoritative voices, strong gatekeeping, and a clear view of the source of that media. But Shaw (2013) argues that mass media is less important to people under thirty years of age than social media, and that a new set of media tools are now available.
Watch the video of a 2015 interaction between then-Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Black Lives Matter activists. (The interaction is in two parts; there’s a transcript posted, but I suggest you watch the video, so you can observe the tone and pacing.) Look for a conflict in the strategies each seems to think will result in social change. Using quotes from the video and the Resources to support your argument, answer the following questions.
• Is Black Lives Matter less centralized than the 20th century social justice movements that we have discussed previously (and that Hillary Clinton may have been a part of)? Why do you think so?
• Does Black Lives Matter use different tactics for direct action than earlier social justice movements? How do their tactics relate to the use of social media?
• Which approach, Clinton’s or BLM’s (as represented here), do you think will be more effective in the next decades? Why?

Part 2
In the readings, Connor (2020) makes the point that there are a variety of ways that social justice movements may define for themselves whether they are having a positive impact, while Almeida (2019) provides a look at how social scientists determine whether a movement is successful.
Choose one of the social justice movement organizations from this list: Social Movement Organizations for Week 7 Discussion. Then, answer the following questions:
• If you were a member of this organization, how would you define success for this social movement? Why?
• As a social scientist, how would you determine whether this social justice movement has had a positive societal impact? Be sure to describe what measures you would use to make this determination.
• How are your answers to parts 1 and 2 similar? How are they different? Why?

Part 3
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused wide-scale disruptions in societies around the world, and social justice movements have not been immune. As you read this week, social justice movements have had to adjust their tactics and goals in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis. At the same time, the pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities, providing more space for social justice movements to act. And vaccine and masking mandates have spawned their own sets of protest movements.
Given what you read for this week and what you have experienced living through the Covid-19 pandemic, answer the following questions:
• In your opinion, what are the two most important ways that social movements have had to adjust their tactics in response to the Covid-19 pandemic? Why are these the most important? Be sure to cite the resources to back up your choices.
• What effects has the Covid-19 pandemic had on the effectiveness of social movements? Do you think these are long-term effects? Why or why not?
