Teachers – we need your help!

Teachers – we need your help!


Written by: Ann Singleton, Steve Tombs, David Whyte

Do you teach citizenship, history or PSHE at key stages 3 or 4?

The Institute of Race Relations is developing a downloadable teaching resource for the citizenship, history and PSHE curricula. The resource will be centred on the life stories of five anti-racist campaigners in Britain from the last 50 years and will explore the themes of identity, the role of media, political participation and campaigning. The source material for the resource will be taken from the Black History Collection currently being preserved and catalogued at the Institute.

We are looking for a handful of teachers who are willing to work with us in a voluntary capacity to help make this resource as well targeted and useful as possible. If you think you could help and have some time to donate, please email: rosie@irr.org.uk or phone: 020 7837 0041. We promise not take up much of your time and your contribution will be invaluable.
