Ensuring Gypsy, Roma and Traveller children do not feel unseen in the history classroom

Teaching History article

By Richard Kerridge and Helen Snelson, published 21st September 2022

‘We are invisible!’

Richard Kerridge and Helen Snelson present a brief sequence of lessons using the life of the Gypsy woman Mary Squires as a way into the changes of industrialising Britain. More significantly, they also present a compelling rationale for why history teachers should be slotting in the stories of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people to broaden inclusive representation and challenge intolerance. The authors provide useful links and resources for this specific area of inclusive teaching, as well as broader suggestions for how to portray the history of all the people in Britain in the history classroom.
