    COURSE: Re-imagining Black History in Primary Schools
    From 7th June to 12th July 2017. Every Wednesday 6.30pm – 8.30pm with the exception of Thursday 15th June 2017

    This six-week CPD course equips primary school teachers with the skills, knowledge, and resources required to teach Black British history sensitively and with confidence.

    Sessions led by noted historians Robin Walker, S. I. Martin and Black Cultural Archive’s Learning Team will enable teachers to explore the rich and diverse history of people of African descent in Britain, as well as the role they have played in shaping the country. Our unique archive collection will be used to stimulate critical discussion and provide a stimulus to create lesson plans and schemes of work with the guidance of our expert team.

    Pedagogical workshops will guide teachers through our unique pedagogy which has been developed to highlight the breadth and depth of Black history. Our approach encourages learners to develop enquiry skills and appreciate the complexities of people, events, and ideas.
