Teaching with Voices of a People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Howard Zinn's influential books have inspired students and activists of all ages, affirming the power of the people to influence the course of events. From the classic A People's History of the United States, to the primary sources in Voices of a People's History of the United States, to the stories of young leaders in A Young People's History of the United States, arises a symphony of our nation's original voices, an embodiment of the power of civil disobedience and dissent wherein lies our nation's true spirit of defiance and resilience.

In this teaching guide, history professor Gayle Olson-Raymer provides insight into how to apply Voices of a People's History of the United States and A Young People's History of the United States in the classroom. It includes questions for discussions, exams, and essays; creative ideas for in-class activities and group projects; and suggestions for teaching Voices alongside Zinn's A People's History of the United States.

In conjunction with the newly launched Zinn Education Project—a collaboration between Teaching for Change and Rethinking Schools—Olson-Raymer's teaching guide will bring the writings of Howard Zinn to the most critical population: our youth.

Gayle Olson-Raymer is professor of history and education at Humboldt State University and a participating professor in the Teaching American History program in two California elementary and high school districts. She is the author of Terrorism: A Historical and Contemporary Perspective and Instructor's Manual for Alan Brinkley's American History: A Survey.

Book News Annotation:

This teaching guide will help history teachers using Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States and its companion book of primary sources, Voices of a People's History of the United States, written by Zinn and Anthony Arnove. The guide shows how Voices may be used as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with A People's History, and suggests a variety of ways to combine the use of secondary and primary historical materials in high school, college, and university classrooms. Chapters mirror chapters of the Zinn and Arnove book. Each chapter contains a brief summary and many suggestions for document-based review, discussion, and essay questions, plus ideas for simulations and other creative approaches. The book has been published in conjunction with the newly launched Zinn Education Project, a collaboration between Teaching for Change and Rethinking Schools. Olsen-Raymer teaches at Humboldt State University. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
