HA Webinar: Were all Victorian childhoods the same? Bringing socio-economic history into the primary classroom

Diversity in the primary history curriculum

Event Type: CPD

Takes Place: 11th March 2021

Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Venue: Online

Description: One of the most difficult things in history is helping our children develop a sense of period - what was it really like to live in Victorian times. One of the best ways to do this is to help them see Victorians as real people, and the best way to do this is to help them see people as individuals. The more you study individuals the more you realise how different they were. By studying Victorian childhood we can develop an understanding of how diverse a society the Victorians were - rich and poor; skilled and unskilled; slave and free. This webinar will explore these differences, and suggest ways we can really understand childhood in Victorian times.
