The Zinn Education Project’s essential work fills a gap in our curriculum by bringing lessons to teachers that cultivate critical thinking around how power operates in history and today.

I have used Zinn Ed Project resources for teaching in my Maryland public high school classroom about Reconstruction, about imperialism, about Columbus, about race in colonial America, and about Central American history and politics.

Thank you for giving me and other teachers access to these resources that we can find nowhere else, and for challenging the inequities in our curriculum. I’m excited to see where we go next!
