Product Description
This is a popular lesson from my sociology class. I include a powerpoint with some information/clips that describe what a counterculture is. I use this along with my Essential Question addressing, "How does studying Sociology contribute to Social Diversity."

The clip begins with Sinead OConnor on SNL back in the 90's. I explain how her act of tearing up the picture of the Pope was extreme and a clear act of resistance against the catholic church. She was banned from SNL, shunned from many people in the public, and given much negative publicity.

I then discuss Rage Against the Machine and I address their anti government stance. I explain how their album cover (in assignment) exemplifies this. I discuss their stint on SNL and provide the actual "memoir" so to speak of a bandmember that describes their plan in detail, and I include an activity to go with it.

Students get to also see other ways RATM shows their resistance through a slide explaining their album cover.

The way to assess their learning is the assignment I provide that allows them to "draw" their own example. Students tap into their creativity, and learn about the many diverse ways people have beliefs. I emphasize that not all countercultures are bad: MLK and Rosa Parks are examples of resistance for the better.
