Mr. Rogers is quoted as saying, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." This collection will give students a framework to "look for the helpers"--the people who are trying to change society for the better during difficult times. Students will be introduced to a variety of strategies and tactics used in social movements, and consider how these might apply to an area of their own interest.
Included is a chart listing possible strategies for social movements that encourages students to find examples of tactics/strategies from the collection and determine the goals of each.
Opportunities for extension include:
Identify a social movement that relies on more than one strategy (most do). Can you create a "recipe" listing the various tactics used to create a successful movement?
Who is involved? Choose one of the examples from above to study further. Who was involved in that particular tactic or strategy? Consider different occupations (teacher, writer, church leader, student, mother) and also different demographics (gender, race, age, ethnicity, etc.)
What's missing? Are there strategies that you have encountered in your research that don't fit into this chart?
-What caused a sense of American conformity to develop in the 1950s? How was this feeling expressed?
-What challenges to conformity existed in the 1950s?

This topical collection is meant to serve as a starting point to explore the concept of god in Hinduism. Students can review the images in the collection for clues to help them answer questions like:
-How are gods portrayed in relation to other gods, people, or animals?
-Do there seem to be one god or many gods? Do they seem to be male or female?
-What common symbols or poses are present? What do you think they mean?
-What kinds of powers do the god figures seem to have? In what ways are they like human beings and in what ways are they different?
The final resource in this collection is a video that gives insight into the Hindu concept of god. After exploring this collection, encourage students to choose one aspect of Hinduism that they would like to research further.
