HA Webinar: Weaving African history into the primary curriculum

Tueday , 8 June 2021 16:00 – 17:00 BST

This practical webinar will show how to give greater prominence to African history in the primary curriculum, extending coverage beyond Black History Month. Examples will be given from NC units on Ancient Egypt (particularly the so-called black pharaohs of Nubia), Ancient Benin, the impact of the Muslim conquest of North Africa (when Baghdad was at the height of its power) and the experience of Africans serving the British Empire in the world wars of the 20th century. Suggested content choices will be expressed as rigorous enquiry questions linked to second order concepts for incorporation into medium-term plans.

This webinar is part of a series on Diversity in the primary history curriculum run by the Historical Association. A discount is available if you book multiple webinars in the series together: for more information please visit the HA website and book using the form provided.
