Teaching about slavery

27th April 2007 at 01:00
The Commission for Racial Equality has launched "Teaching about slavery", an on-line resource for all secondary and primary teachers. The web pages will, for the first time, pull together a range of materials to assist teachers when covering issues relating to the transatlantic slave trade.

The website will help in the teaching of the slave trade and wider black history issues. The pages have been created as part of the first stage of a wider CRE initiative to develop cross-curricular teaching resources on the transatlantic trade for teachers, which will be available later this year.

The CRE curriculum project forms part of the commission's contribution to mark the Bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act. Through this initiative, the commission aims to ensure that 2007 leaves a lasting educational legacy by exploring the impact this episode in history has left in terms of contemporary race relations, in Britain and worldwide.
