"[B]ased on a true incident that occured in a high school history class in Palo Alto, California, 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. Before long "The Wave," with its rules of "strength through discipline, community and action," sweeps from the classroom throughout the entire school. 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."--Container

The Third Wave is a true story about a high-school experiment in fascism that went out of control. Set in 1967 in Palo Alto, California, during the Vietnam war, racial integration and social revolution, the play centers around a young, popular teacher, Ron Jones, and his world history class. When a student asks how so many people could be led to deny the Holocaust of World War II, Mr. Jones decides to demonstrate by giving his students an exercise in discipline not unlike that of a totalitarian society. To his surprise, the students delight in the order and power of that discipline and relinquish their freedom in favor of the prospect of supposed superiority over other students in the school. The class adopts the name "The Third Wave," and soon many others, even from neighboring schools, clamor to be part of the "elite" group

Per far comprendere meglio i meccanismi e i rischi dell'autoritarismo, il professor Wenger, insegnante in un liceo tedesco, stimola i propri studenti a promuovere codici collettivi di disciplina, di riconoscimento, di autostima e riesce a convincere i suoi alunni a considerarlo come leader di un'associazione denominata "Terza onda". Il seminario prende una piega talmente imprevista e crudele che i ragazzi, presi dall'entusiasmo, creano un movimento diventando sempre più arroganti ed aggressivi. (LaFeltrinelli)

The third wave musical by Ron Jones( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Third Wave Musical tells the true story of a classroom experiment in fascism which takes place in January l967 at Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California. It is a time of anti-war protests, racial integration and a cultural revolution. To answer a student's question about how the holocaust could happen, a young teacher, Mr. Jones, decides to give his world history class an exercise in discipline -- the experience of being in a totalitarian society. To his surprise, the students like the order and power that comes with discipline. No one could predict the explosive events that would follow. During a five-day period, students give up their freedom for the prospect of being superior to their classmates. Student curiosity and questioning is replaced with conformity and violence. Membership cards, salutes, bodyguards and informants fuel the excitement that becomes known as The Third Wave. Everyone wants to join -- to be part of the action. Students welcome the witch-hunts, rallies, and the feeling of being special. Like his followers, Mr. Jones crosses some invisible line -- he's no longer a teacher conducting a simulation but a leader of a national movement who enjoys the power, adulation and control. The Third Wave Musical explains what can happen when we stop believing in ourselves and fall victim to fear and intimidation, allows us to feel how difficult it is to stand up to injustice and group will, and shows us the price we pay when we lose the democratic process and respect of others to a world of bullies. I know. I am Ron Jones and I was the teacher responsible for The Third Wave
