Research the characteristics of leaders who have used nonviolence to change society. The class then applies this information to their own community to find leaders with these same characteristics, creating a wall collage of pictures and words that demonstrate attributes of successful leaders. Individuals will then write a detailed description and create a poster for one community leader. An extensive bibliography provides internet links and books the teacher can use as resources.
