Teach Reconstruction Campaign Organizer
The Zinn Education Project (ZEP), coordinated by Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change, promotes and supports teaching of people’s history in middle and high school classrooms across the country.
More than 80,000 teachers have registered to access people’s history lessons and have engaged in people’s history workshops. On our 10th anniversary, we launched a campaign to Teach Reconstruction to help teachers and schools uncover the hidden, bottom-up history of this era. We offer lessons for middle and high school, a student project to make Reconstruction history visible in their communities, teacher workshops, and resource recommendations.
We are hiring an education organizer with a grounding in U.S. history to coordinate the Teach Reconstruction campaign in the South. This is a unique opportunity to play a key role in a groundbreaking effort to engage students in learning hidden history.
