The Wave

Because our current unit question was "How do ideas turn into a revolution?", our class read the novel The Wave, by Todd Strasser. We completed numerous double entry diaries and did many activities in class relating to the book. The book told the story of a school teacher who created a society within his classroom which led to chaos in the school. The theme of the story was how easy it is to get swept up in peer pressure.
