This comprehensive course will help educators design and deliver engaging Black history curricula.
Taking participants from first principles, the course starts by considering what constitutes Black history and the historic deficit in the teaching of those histories, before diving into subject knowledge lectures to help educators enhance their understanding of specific Black histories. The course closes with curriculum and lesson planning lectures that aim to introduce educators to the wealth of digital resources available and how these can be creatively integrated into lessons.
Participants will be encouraged to review their current history programmes and begin considering areas where Black narratives can be re-inserted. The course is curriculum focussed, so participants will engage with statutory and non-statutory requirements, allowing them to see how the teaching of Black histories can be used to fulfil the national curriculum more widely.
