ACTIVITY 3: Handout 2

The Effects Wheel

One change can have significance beyond that immediate action. Using the effects wheel below as a guide, you will work with a partner to illustrate how taking one action on behalf of justice and equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons can affect the whole of society as one change leads to others. Your teacher will ask you to write one change in the middle of the wheel. In the ring surrounding the middle, you will write possible effects of that change. In the outermost ring, you will write possible effects of changes in the middle ring. The intent of this exercise is for you to see that the actions you take really do make a difference in the short term and in the long run.
