"These resources are an asset." We are always looking for ways to offer students a critical perspective. The unsung heroes unit is outstanding! I have tailored it to meet the needs of my 2nd graders when we study American biographies." ~ Meaghan Martin, an elementary school teacher in Manassas, Va. commenting on Zinn's "A People's History"
"Knowing that resources like the Zinn Education Project exist make me feel so hopeful about the network of people who are engaged in this kind of dialogue with their students." ~ Lara Emerling, a middle school teacher in Baltimore, Md.
". . . why hold up as models the 55 rich white men who drafted the Constitution as a way of establishing a government that would protect the interests of their class – slaveholders, merchants, bondholders, land speculators?" ~ Howard Zinn
"We're dreamers," writes Zinn. "We want it all. We want a peaceful world. We want an egalitarian world. We don't want war. We don't want capitalism. We want a decent society."
Zinn's influence is growing, despite what some claim. And it looks like Zinn & the NEA have a lot in common, wouldn't you agree?
