About the event

Spoke and Word Books is proud to participate and host an event in-store for the 4th Annual Teach Truth Day of Action on June 8th! Sarah Powers is an Instructional Coach and SBAC Coordinator from Ardenwald Elementary  & will be in-store with a Teach Truth pop-up with educational materials, banned books and more! The goal of the Zinn Education Project is to introduce students to a more accurate, complex, and engaging understanding of United States history than is found in traditional textbooks and curricula. The empowering potential of studying U.S. history is often lost in a textbook-driven trivial pursuit of names and dates. People’s history materials and pedagogy emphasize the role of working people, women, people of color, and organized social movements in shaping history. Students learn that history is made not by a few heroic individuals, but instead by people’s choices and actions, thereby also learning that their own choices and actions matter.
