The Zinn Education Project (which promotes the use of Howard Zinn’s best-selling book, A People’s History of the United States, in classrooms across the country) has a new teacher’s guide available that includes two Chelsea Green authors.
The guide - a companion piece to a film about Daniel Ellsberg called “The Most Dangerous Man in America” - is available for  free download online. Featured in the document are Molly Bang’s graphic novel  Nobody Particular: One Woman’s Fight to Save the Bays (which tells the story of shrimper-turned-environmental-activist  Diane Wilson in striking illustrations), as a recommended resource for teachers, and also Diane Wilson (author of  An Unreasonable Woman and  Holy Roller) herself. It sounds like a great resource for anyone involved in education, especially those focused on teaching the history of the Vietnam War to middle and high school students. Be sure to check it out!
More from the Zinn Education Project’s announcement:
The Zinn Education Project is pleased to release a 94-page teaching guide on the film  The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers . The teaching guide offers eight lessons on the Vietnam War, Daniel Ellsberg, whistleblowing, the Pentagon Papers and more — for U.S. history, government, and language arts classrooms.  The Most Dangerous Man in America Teaching Guide offers a “people’s history” approach to learning about the U.S. war in Vietnam and engages students in thinking deeply about their own responsibility as truth-tellers and peacemakers. The guide uses a variety of teaching strategies, including role play, critical reading, discussion, mock trial, small group imaginative writing, and personal narrative. Developed by the  Zinn Education Project in collaboration with The Most Dangerous Man in America filmmakers Judith Ehrlich and Rick Goldsmith, the  teaching guide is available for free download at the Zinn Education Project (Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change) website.
