Non-Fiction File Folder

When does a crowd become a mob?

Task

As we read "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street," we discussed the concept of a mob and some catalysts for turning a simple crowd into a mob. You have also reviewed literature on five events where people took on mob-like tendencies. Your assignment is to create a file folder on one of these events. Within your file folder, you must use at least 8 non-fiction text features. (Title does not count!)
