We work around the clock to provide resources. We need your help to continue this work in 2021.
In the past nine months, since the pandemic closed school buildings in March, we have:
- Converted 12 of our most popular and latest lessons into remote learning activities for synchronous and asynchronous learning.
- Created a guide for remote teaching for people’s history teachers.
- Created resources for at-home learning, such as annotated lists of Films with a Conscience and People’s History Podcasts for Young People.
- Created a series of immensely popular people’s history online classes, which led to the development of a new lesson to challenge the traditional Rosa Parks narrative. We have classes scheduled through Spring 2021; we plan to continue these if funding allows.
- Kept a focus on the importance of teaching about and defending voting rights (in the midst of intensified voter suppression) with an article in The Washington Post and a new lesson.
- Published “Who’s to Blame? A People’s Tribunal on the Coronavirus Pandemic,” a lesson for grades 7+ to help students examine cultural, economic, political, and scientific factors that led to our current crisis.
We need your help so that we can continue to develop resources, share teaching stories, and bring teachers together to think and act ourselves out of this pandemic.
