"The Wave" - Morton Rhue / Todd Strasser - Stanley Milgram Experiment PowerPoint

(2)
This FREE PowerPoint presentation presents and focuses on introducing Stanley Milgram’s (in)famous experiment to test “the banality of evil” and adherence / obedience to authority figures. The PowerPoint clearly and succinctly presents the experiment in the context of the many unthinkable and atrocious war crimes committed by Nazis during and before World War II. The PowerPoint can be taught in the context of any novel or unit that looks at the issue, but I mostly use it in connection with “The Wave” by Morton Rhue / Todd Strasser.
