Janet Orchard

Will the 'hidden' curriculum be addressed in this project? Maybe a few steps ahead?
Clara Mason

CARGO resources are great for history - produced in Bristol by Bristol people
Nina Bambrey
54:18
Would you recommend the radical history society?
Janet Orchard
54:18
Merryn Evans at Redland Green doing excellent curriculum development in RWE
ses
56:06
I must highly recommend the work NATRE have done for Ethics, Religion nd Philosophy - led by Lat Blaylock
Janet Orchard
58:04
Agreed. Lat has worked hard in this area; and had his efforts trashed (inaccurately) by The Telegraph.

I really appreciate these Qs to orient/inform curriculum planning, Tanisha!
Catherine Brennan (she/her) - The EAL Academy / Better Bilingual
01:07:47
I really like those questions, Tanisha - thanks for sharing.
Sheila.Pandya
01:07:57
Can we be sent the PowerPoint after this webinar please?
Rafael Mitchell
01:08:03
Sheila - absolutely
Beth Steed
01:08:16
Really useful! Thanks Tanisha <3
Sheila.Pandya
01:08:19
Those Qs are so useful across all subjects - thank you so much for sharing

01:10:55
This work on Prevent should not be dumped on a 'lone wolf'. It's a whole school responsibility!
Lauren Vesey
01:11:12
Such useful questions Tanisha, thank you! x
Janet Orchard
01:11:14
Well done on all your hard work Tanisha
Mary Phipps
01:11:51
Thankyou so much. Great questions. Contribution of parents is also a great resource from the community.
Rafael Mitchell
01:13:45
If you have any Qs, do leave these in the chat and we'll return to in the Q&A
Janet Orchard
01:14:21
Agreed, Mary, particularly given how under-represented Black and Asian people are in the teaching workforce. White allies in teaching/teacher education have a job to do here, for example along the lines that Terra and others have demonstrated
Janet Orchard
01:14:36
I find 'China' as a stereotype hard as well
Janet Orchard
01:15:48
Most migration in sub-Saharan Africa happens within southern Africa itself. Not to Europe etc
Janet Orchard
01:16:21
I potentially have access to expertise in migration and development if this could be of interest
Jo
01:20:07
find 'China' as a stereotype hard as well - yes totally
Rafael Mitchell
01:20:20
If you have any comments or Qs for any of the presenters, please raise these in the chat

01:20:28
We'll come back to them shortly

Great work Helena!!!

Thanks Helena!
Lisa Bailey
01:24:41
Helena, is it possible to share an example from your A-Z? I can see it working with book covers for the English department.
Helena Lacey

Carolyn
01:34:23
Have you had political kickback from some quarters? How do you respond?I have been challenged over using the term ‘decolonising the curriculum’.
Catherine Brennan (she/her) - The EAL Academy / Better Bilingual
01:39:05
I really like Terra's description of 'decolonising' as 'taking the blinkers off' and not 'taking anything away' - persuasive for the doubters, Carolyn?
Lisa Bailey
01:39:54
I have a specific English teacher question. We teach 'Of Mice and Men' in Year 9 - we have tried to address the casual racism in the dialogue with sensitivity, but have still had issues around this. Any advice would be most welcome. We don't want to make our students feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
Penny Rabiger
01:40:54
Good question. The environment is hostile
Elsa
01:41:15
Lisa - I am also interested in whether OMAM still has its place in secondary English
Penny Rabiger
01:41:44
Teachers are being told that they are not being impartial and potentially breaking the law if they talk about whiteness and race
Rose
01:42:00
Does anyone have any ideas on how to approach teaching the discovery of DNA in science? I think that the racism and belief in eugenics that James Watson has should be tackled but I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on the best way to approach this sort of thing?
Terra Glowach
01:43:16
YES Rose - teachers in our school have worked on this very topic for KS3 science.
Madeleine French
01:43:36
This has been so helpful. Thank you very much.
Terra Glowach
01:43:40
Adam Rutherford's book How to Argue with a Racist is excellent on this topic.

For Rose..
Beth Steed
01:44:09
Yes Terra! I’ll have a look at our resources in science - email me at cbrizzi@bristolcathedral.org.uk if interested
Rose
01:44:11
Fantastic! It would be great to get in touch with them about that Terra!
