ZINN EDUCATION PROJECT
New. Improved. Enhanced.
"After reviewing over 30 online curricula and websites
to evaluate, among other things, content, visual design and ease of navigation,
I find the Zinn Education Project website
to be a shining star in this universe.
The substance of its content, different ways to search, and the fact that it so regularly and relevantly updated make it distinctive and exemplary."
--- Simone Bloom Nathan, Educational Media Consultant
Dear Zinn Education Project friends,
We spent the last six months upgrading the Zinn Education Project database to make it easier for you to find the resources you need, to streamline the log-in process
Four menus allow you to easily toggle between selections.
, and to improve the overall look
of the website.
In 2008, the Zinn Education Project started out
by distributing 4,000 teaching guides, copies of A People's History of the United States
, and DVDs to teachers for free. Now, five years later
, we feature a rich database of materials and free downloadable teaching activities----
the only one of its kind----
almost 30,000 educators
Facundo the Great
. We are happy to share new resources, including two books by Rethinking Schools.
Thanks to Our Donors!
