■ Lesson Plan ★★★ — A documentary based on a classroom experiment called the Third Wave led by an unorthodox history teacher named Ron Jones in 1967. Jones started the movement to demonstrate to his students how easy it is to be led into a fascist regime.

This film is a series of touching and insightful interviews with the students who were involved in the movement, including interviews with Jones himself. It wouldn’t hurt the filmmakers to make at least one more pass through the editing room, remembering that not every viewer knows what the third wave was. I found it to be a little muddled and confusing, especially at the beginning. However, it did inspire me to do more research on the third wave movement as this is a story everyone needs to hear. This documentary is a great place to start.
