Intended audience: teachers and subject leaders of Primary History

Intended outcomes:

Colleagues will be more knowledgeable about aspects of African history

Colleagues will be able to plan weaving aspects of African history into their curriculum mapping

About The Course

This one and a half hour webinar will show how schools can weave more African history in

its own right in to their curriculum maps and planning, beyond the usual Black History Month. It will show how African history can be included:

through the choice of significant individuals studied

in depth through looking at Ancient Egypt`s relations with the neighbouring black kingdom of Kush,

in depth through the history of Ancient Benin

in depth by linking to remembrance through the study of the service of African soldiers to the British Empire in both world wars.
