Tell Us Your “Teaching a People’s History” Story

Teachers often tell us about how A People’s History of the United States influenced their decision to become a teacher.

To demonstrate the lasting impact Howard Zinn has had on elementary and secondary school educators and students, The Zinn Education Project is 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. Share your story.

If you haven't already, please listen to Howard Zinn's last interview with teachers that took place on January 19.

  1. This video is evidence of Zinn's down to earth approach to history. It's about the ordinary people and their struggles, not so much about kings, princes, or presidents.
