Voices of a People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove is a symphony of our nation’s original voices, an embodiment of the power of civil disobedience and dissent wherein our nation’s true spirit of defiance and resilience lies.
In this teaching guide, Gayle Olson-Raymer provides insight into how to use this remarkable anthology in the classroom, including discussion, exam, and essay questions, 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.
With selected chapters written by Humboldt County AP teachers Jack Bareilles (McKinleyville High School), Natalia Boettcher (South Fork High School), Mike Benbow (Fortuna High School), Ron Perry (Eureka High School), Robin Pickering, Jennifer Rosebrook (Arcata High School), Colby Smart (Ferndale High School), and Robert Standish (South Fork High School)
“This is a wonderful book because it provides the voices of the dissidents in their own words. Students are able to see the comprehensive nature of dissent in American history and read the words of the underrepresented. I especially like to assign reading from unknown dissidents, and the students have told me that they have been impressed to see the fire, passion and courage of those who stood up for freedom when it was not the politically popular thing to do.” — Tom Callahan, Iona College
“In Voices of a People’s History of the United States, Howard Zinn has given us our true story, the ongoing, not-so-secret narrative of race and class in America.” — Russell Banks.
