Teach the teacher study day – approaches to teaching slavery
25 March 2015, 9.15am to 4.30pm
International Slavery Museum, Albert Dock, Liverpool Waterfront, L3 4AQ
The day will offer teachers the opportunity to increase their awareness, knowledge and confidence in the teaching of the history of transatlantic slavery, the enslavement of African people and its legacies, and issues around contemporary slavery.
The day will touch on themes addressed in the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3: life in West Africa, prior to transatlantic slavery, the middle passage and enslavement, life in the Americas, abolition, resistance and the legacies of transatlantic slavery. It will also support teaching in the subject areas of history, citizenship and sociology.
Learning outcomes for teachers include;
- Professional, practical guidance in dealing with issues that arise in the classroom when teaching a sensitive, emotive subject with young people.
- An opportunity to draw on the experience and knowledge of the education team at the International Slavery Museum, and use the handling collections and gallery displays.
- A safe supportive environment in which to ask questions and raise classroom-related issues.
- An understanding of how the Magna Carta was used in the abolition of slavery and explores its relevance today.
- Guidance and approaches to teaching the subject and how its themes can be addressed across the curriculum.
- The opportunity to share views and influence a new Museum workshop about contemporary slavery.
- Plan future use by schools of the Museum’s resources, including educational workshops, teaching materials, displays and exhibitions.
