Based on a true story *THE WAVE by Ron Jones, is a narrative about a young 1960's California history teacher who wanted to deter his students from the allure of totalitarianism. His daring social experiment succeeded beyond his wildest expectations, creating a fascist state on campus. Replete with salutes and Gestapo-like informants, 30 students grew to 200 as this exercise in fascism spiraled out of control. The "experiment" illustrates how individual freedoms can be quickly abandoned and willfully repressed for collective goals and racism, as happened in the rise of Nazi Germany and the treatment of the Jews during World War II.

* THE WAVE is appropriate for ages 14 and older.
