Rest in Peace: Howard Zinn (1922-2010)

January 29th, 2010 by Dave · No Comments

Howard Zinn passed away on Wednesday. He is one of my favorite authors and educators, and he will certainly be missed.

Recently, Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change launched the Zinn Education Project, a collection of resources for teaching A People’s History of the United States. There are tons of great materials here for introducing issues of race, war and labor rights. I’ve used excerpts from this book in my classes over the years, and I’ve always found it to be a welcome contrast to typical history books.
