My Take

The materials have a focus on social justice. The Zinn Education Project site includes many lessons and activities for teachers. They can be easily found/searched in multiple ways (by topic, by time period, etc.). You have to register for the site, but materials are free and are available mostly in PDF format. There is a lot of support on the site-- a section to learn about why you should use Zinn's materials, a FAQ section, and a support section. The lesson are excellent, and can be easily adapted for use in different classrooms. If you are a Howard Zinn fan, or if you're looking to just be more inclusive in your curricular materials, this site will be very useful.

How I Use It

If you use Howard Zinn's materials in your class, this site will be beneficial. If you don't, it's a great way to get familiar with A People's History.
