Black lives and black history resources
The killing of George Floyd in the United States has led to renewed debate about racism in societies across the world. You can use this collection of resources to explore black history, heritage, culture and achievements with your class.
Below you'll find content suitable for use with both primary and secondary school pupils, including classroom resources from BBC Teach and content from across the BBC. Each BBC Teach resource is accompanied by teacher notes to aid classroom use.
For teachers, you can read this article by Josiah Isles, an assistant headteacher who has written about his experiences within the education system as a black teacher in the UK.
We also have a new series of short films about being an ally to your students from black, South Asian and mixed heritage backgrounds.
You can also catch up on our panel discussion programme, Beyond Black History Month, in partnership with TES. This programme was originally broadcast live on 21 October 2020 and features ideas and best practice around teaching black and diverse histories and experiences.
