OACS-E: WWII and Beyond (History, Atoms, and Genetics)

WWII Atom Banner

This integrated unit of study, designed for any high school student, brings together themes from many generations with the focus on examining the history of civil rights. How has our world been shaped by the quest for equality? Anne Frank, atomic bombs, nuclear reactions, scatterplots, and more are covered as this unit follows the path of discrimination from Adolf Hitler to Martin Luther King Jr.'s motivational "Letter from Birmingham".  U.S. documents are analyzed; biographies of Winston Churchill and Anne Frank are discussed.
