zep-homeAbout the Zinn Education Project


The Zinn Education Projectcoordinated by Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change, promotes and supports the use of Howard Zinn's best-selling book A People's History of the United States and other materials for teaching a people's history in middle and high school classrooms across the country. 


The goal of the Zinn Education Project is to introduce students to a more accurate, complex, and engaging understanding of United States history than is found in traditional textbooks and curricula. Zinn's A People's History of the United States and Voices of a People's History of the United States emphasize the role of working people, women, people of color, and organized social movements in shaping history. Students learn that history is made not by a few heroic individuals, but instead by people's choices and actions, thereby also learning that their own choices and actions matter.


We believe that through taking a more engaging and more honest look at the past, we can help equip students with the analytical tools to make sense of----and improve----the world today. 


The Zinn Education Project hosts a website with more than 95 free, downloadable teaching activities for middle and high school classrooms to bring a people's history to the classroom. The teaching activities and resources are organized by theme, time period and grade level. This is the only collection of its kind for educators----print or online----in the country.
