WWII and Beyond (History, Atoms and Genetics)

Anne Frank, atomic bombs, nuclear reactions, scatterplots, and more are all covered in this post-World War 2 unit. The unit goes from heredity of European people who are discriminated against by the Dictator Adolf Hitler to Martin Luther King Jr’s motivational, “Letter from Birmingham”. My class will focus on the ins and outs of correct measurements for certain quantities expressed such as distance from the atomic bomb explosion and affect it had on the entire cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. U.S. documents are analyzed as well as the biographies of the great war leader, Winston Churchill, and the poor little girl who kept a tear jerking diary, Anne Frank. This post-WWII to the fight for civil rights unit covers a broad spectrum of topics from the mid 1930’s in Germany to the late 1960’s in the Southern states of the United States. Useful in any high school classroom for any high school student. This unit was created by Shane Cahill.
