Page 1 of 3 SOC 352 – Outline for Chapter 7 Social Movements: basic avenues by which social change takes place in societies like the United States. They are often the carriers of innovation, particularly in nontechnical realms. They shape attidues, define public issues, and affect social policy in a variety of ways. Most become political. They exist outside the institutional framework of everyday life and are in some way oriented toward a degree a social change. They are unconventional collectivites with varying degrees of organization that attept to promote or prevent change. Typically produce conflict with other movements and causes. SMs differ from structures that are more integrated into the society in these ways: They develop multiple segmental organizations that compete for the loyalities of sympathizers in a multiporganization field. They recruit sympathizers in face to face encounters in small groups. Large rallies and demonstatraions publicize the issues of the movement, by they are not the settings that make converts. Adherents are motivated by strong personal commitments rather tha by external rewardxs like money.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
