If you are doing a dissenter, you might want to cover the following:

1. Who are they?
2. When did they live? What was the situation?
3. What turned them into a dissenter?
4. What was their rationale, and answer? (here is where you really want to discuss philosophy... compare to critical thinking skills another philosopher's views if possible)
5. What happened to them?
6. Other thoughts you may have about this person.
7. Where others might want to read about this.

If you are doing a dissident movement, you might want to cover the following:

1. When was this? What was the situation in general?
2. What caused people to dissent and come together?
3. What was their rationale, and answer? (here is where you really want to discuss philosophy... compare to critical thinking skills another philosopher's views if possible)
4. What happened to them?
5. Other thoughts you may have about this event.
6. Where others might want to read about this.

In any case, after your presentation, please turn in brief notes on where you found the information... your presentation, after all, should be documented!
