How to support white British trainee teachers in their thinking and teaching about black British histories

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Black British history plays a significant role in the formation of British cultural identity and the history of the UK, and ought to be taught as such in UK schools.

But evidence from my research on primary school teaching and learning about history and national identity shows that white British teachers – the dominant workforce in schools – are most likely to focus their classroom teaching on Eurocentric and white British cultural experiences and identities.
