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 lies our nation's true spirit of defiance and resilience.
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.
