Join us as we sit down with history teacher Ekaete Alfred to dissect the National Curriculum and discuss the following – is it possible to teach robust Black British history at KS3?
If so, how? And should we be championing integrated modules or dedicated modules?
History education is central to giving students a deep understanding of how the world, its societies, economies, politics and religions came to be. In particular, it has a role to play in fostering global citizenship and British values. Central to this is gaining an understanding of Africa, the world’s second largest continent, and how its descendents have contributed to various global developments.
In what promises to be an engaging conversation, we will dissent the KS3 history curriculum and ask how educators can robustly cover important Black historical narratives in the classroom.
