Chartered College of Teaching. De-colonising the primary school History curriculum

Moncrieffe, M. (Presenter)

Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

Join Dr. Marlon Moncrieffe and Naheeda Maharasingam for an interactive workshop on De-colonising the primary school History curriculum.

This workshop will provide for its attendees new routes for teaching and learning about race-equality through the concept of critical multicultural education and theories of historical consciousness for de-colonising the curriculum.

This workshop will begin with sharing some understandings of ‘de-colonisation’. We will discuss what we think this term implies for ourselves as educators: How are we orientated? How does this positioning have an influence on the work of our schools, and the learning of our children?

Case studies and discussion will continue through the identifying and arresting of ‘epistemic violence’ in the primary school curriculum for history.

The concept of critical multicultural education and theories of historical consciousness are shared as routes to praxis for de-colonising the curriculum.

The desired outcome of this workshop is to empower school leaders and teachers to see how they are able to enact the current aims and contents of the national curriculum through their trans-formative and inclusive interpretations of praxis.
