Dear Parent of Guardian,
World War II was perhaps the pivotal event of the twentieth century and a defining moment for America and the world. It shifted the borders of the globe, forever changed those who survived it, and shaped the past five decades.
As we finish our unit on WWII, we will view a film that captures the feeling of that time. Please fill out the Google Form below to give your student permission to view the film, Saving Private Ryan.
Set during and immediately following the invasion of Normandy, Saving Private Ryan tells the story of a squad of American soldiers on a dangerous mission to find Private James Ryan whose three brothers have been killed in combat. On direct orders from Washington, Captain John Miller leads his men deep behind enemy lines. As the squad pushes on, the men find themselves asking: Why is one man worth the lives of eight?
Amid the chaos and terror of those days in early June 1944, this remarkable story searches to find decency in the sheer madness of war.

Choose a 20th Century case study OTHER than the Holocaust or Armenian Genocide, on genocide, and write up how, in that situation, the 8 stages occurred. (see button)
The Santa Susana Field Lab, at Burrow Flats, above Simi Valley was run by Rocketdyne for the testing of missile engines. A saline-cooled nuclear reactor was also used there.

3) What happened and what was this historically important/significant to us, here in Simi especially?
4) What were the results AT THE TIME of this event? (immediate results)
5) What has happened, as a result of this event, during the remainder of the 20th century?
