"The Wave is based on a true incident that occured in a high school history class in Palo Alto, California, in 1969.


The powerful forces of group pressure that pervaded many historic movements such as Nazism are recreated in the classroom when history teacher Burt Ross introduces a "new" system to his students. And before long "The Wave," with its rules of "strength through discipline, community, and action," sweeps from the classroom through the entire school. And as most of the students join the movement, Laurie Saunders and David Collins recognize the frightening momentum of "The Wave" and realize they must stop it before it's too late.

Annotation:
High school history teacher Burt Ross was known for his innovative teaching methods. When it came time to study World War II and the effect Hitler had on the youth of Germany, Ross decides to show his students what it was like to be under group pressure. He starts a movement in his class stressing discipline and solidarity, and before he knows it, 'The Wave' becomes a cult that sweeps through the entire school--and trying to control it as well. Has he created a monster? This story is based on a true incident.
