The Wave (1981) - Worksheet to support the TV Programme

The Wave (1981) - Worksheet to support the TV Programme

Written to support the teaching of the Edexcel 9-1 History GCSE the worksheet supports the 1981 US TV version of The Wave. The film is used to explore the reasons for why a totalitarian system was allowed to develop in Germany from 1933 and how individuals, and particularly the young were coordinated. It makes for an alternative way of teaching both the establishment of totalitarianism in Nazi Germany as well as the limits of its appeal and opposition. The worksheet is written in Publisher formatted to print in A3. This however, can be amended and saved as a PDF (included) for A4 printing: 'Based on a real incident at an American high school in 1967, this short TV movie shows the horror of mob psychology and group pressure. The high school teacher gives his students a lesson in the history of Nazi Germany, not by having them read a chapter in a book but by turning them into Nazis ……. without their even being aware that it is happening.'
