What’s in week 2?

Time to build upon our knowledge of Black British History.

This week we aim to develop your knowledge of Black British History in order to broaden the narratives taught in classrooms.

We will start by unpicking the impacts of eurocentrism on education and the telling of history, before delving into various topics of Black British History.

The week will end with us exploring language use in the classroom and identifying terms which should be avoided.

But first… lets get started with a fun quiz!
