Beyond Tokenism: Teaching a Diverse History in the Post-14 Curriculum
Dennis, Nick
Teaching History, n165 p37-41 Dec 2016
Nick Dennis shows how a "multidirectional memory" approach to teaching history can move history teachers beyond seeing black history as separate or distracting from the history that must be taught at examination level. He gives examples of ways in which a diverse history can be built into examination courses, strengthening historical rigour through complexity and challenging students to see beyond conventional and core narratives. Dennis shows how a series of engaging and thought-provoking stories amount to a "deepening" of knowledge that history teachers already possess. A list of references and notes is provided.
