Invitation to Share Your People's History Teaching Stories

February 2010

As you may already know, Howard Zinn passed away on Wednesday, January 27. We are deeply saddened. His incredible energy, wit, knowledge, political analysis, vision, and dedication had us convinced that he would outlive us all. At 87, he continued to inform and inspire in his presentations across the country, radio interviews, essays, and film making. Read tributes.
Tell Us Your Story About Teaching a People's History

tell us your storyTo demonstrate the lasting impact Howard Zinn has had on elementary and secondary school educators and students, we are collecting teachers' stories, which will be shared on the Zinn Education Project website and linked to HowardZinn.org. These stories can provide ideas and inspiration to other school staff and parents who are looking for ways to deepen the teaching of US history in their schools. Tell us your story.
