This curriculum guide is for high school teachers to help educate students about the many
different ways that Hollywood, the American film industry, supported the American war
effort in World War II. Designed to accompany the online exhibit Hollywood Goes to War,
this guide provides lessons and activities that can be used in U.S. History, World History,
and Advanced Placement classes to utilize the primary resources available in the online exhibit.
The activities in this guide are designed to be cross-curricular and incorporate the new
English, Language Arts, and Reading common core standards.
