Teaching about equality
Leicester University have created a set of resources to support home learning about equality, including the slave trade.
These resources were produced for the National Trust by the Colonial Countryside project and a team of historians led by Miranda Kaufmann, who wrote Black Tudors. The lessons are designed to address a gap in knowledge about country houses’ links to the British empire. They were written by a history teacher and author called Dan Lyndon-Cohen. No prior knowledge is required on the part of the teacher and you can go through the slides, working though the exercises together with your child. The answers to any questions that are asked are all there and no additional resources are required. The idea is to teach British colonial history through a local history lens.
We recommend these for Year 3 and above, although you may wish to read through the slides before hand to make sure you feel they appropriate for individual children.
