The Zinn Education Project 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 website offers more than 85 free, downloadable lessons and articles organized by theme, time period, and reading level. The Zinn Education Project is coordinated by two non-profit organizations, Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change. Its goal 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.
