What educators are saying

My students love having diverse voices in our lessons so that different perspectives and voices are shared. It is an excellent addition to the US curriculum.
We started using Mr. E.'s ancient history last school year....we are so excited to see something else to keep us with him another year or two!

    The Diverse Voices Project is an ongoing diversity initiative designed to increase and empower voices in Social Studies Classrooms. The project emphasizes individuals whose stories have been largely absent, ignored, or under-told in history textbooks or traditional classroom instruction. Now is the time to highlight the individuals whose histories have been crucial and inspirational to the development of American or World History, yet whose stories have been repressed or silenced.

    The Diverse Voices Project is designed to be constantly growing. While the inaugural set includes 10 diverse voices, the project will grow to include 50 individuals at a minimum.

    Each included piece in the Diverse Voices Project is designed to be easily implemented in your classroom, via a Google Doc or a Word Doc. Each resource includes three activities to engage students in each individual’s rich history and contributions:

    Step 1: Read

    • In this section, students connect with a respectable source to understand the person’s history, challenges, and legacy.

    Step 2: Watch

    • Here, students watch a short video that adds another layer for students to connect with this individual.

    Step 3: Interpret

    • Students interact with a primary source artifact from the time period relating to the individual (an image, letter, speech, etc.).
