'Shaping the future', black history and diversity: teacher perceptions and implications for curriculum development

    Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle

    Abstract

    This study provides an evaluation of history subject leader’s perceptions of a project called ‘Shaping the Future’, together with their attitudes towards Black History and diversity. It found that primary subject leaders were less likely to attach importance to these dimensions than their counterparts in secondary schools, whilst only a small minority of subject leaders made use of the project. Nevertheless, the findings provided insights into how some subject leaders used them as threads or within topics in their curriculum. The study argues that this provides a model for developing Black History as a means of understanding the past which is applicable to meeting the needs of all children.
