The Zinn Education Project (coordinated by Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change) seeks to recruit a part-time Campaign Organizer to design the next phase for the Teach Reconstruction Campaign. The length of the contract may be up to 12 months.
To date, the Teach Reconstruction Campaign has engaged thousands of classroom teachers across the U.S. in teaching about Reconstruction (the period between abolition and Jim Crow) with resources beyond the limited scope of textbooks and traditional curriculum. The next phase of the campaign is to extend these efforts to the policy level.
The campaign organizer will design and help implement the second phase of the Reconstruction Campaign in coordination with Zinn Education Project co-directors and staff.
