Black History Month Resources

HOTCUS (Historians of the Twentieth Century United States) has developed a pack of two school assembly plans to mark Black History Month. These plans, designed by Dr. Megan Hunt (@_Megan_Hunt_), are intended to support school engagement with Black History Month whilst stimulating awareness amongst KS3 and KS4 students of the connections between Black British History and the American civil rights movement.

The materials can be accessed here

Welcome to Re-sourcing History

Welcome to Re-sourcing History, the outreach website of the History Department at the University of Southampton.

Ranked third in the country for the overall quality of our research, (REF2014), our large department contains over 40 scholars, collectively covering over 3,000 years of history, ranging from Ancient Egypt to the contemporary War on Terror. This website has been created to enable us to share a range of resources drawn from our diverse teaching and research in these topics, specifically selected to help support both teachers and students in the study of History.

You will find a continuously expanding range of source booklets which contain a selection of primary sources and commentaries related to specific A-level topics. The site also hosts a set of booklets written to support those undertaking Extended Project Qualifications and/or coursework, and an ever-growing series of podcasts in which our researchers share their expertise on topics directly linked to key A-level questions. Over time we will add more content to the site in the form of recorded taster lectures related to both A-level topics and areas of our own research not covered in the national curriculum, advice and guidance on completing UCAS applications and writing effective personal statements, and CPD materials for History teachers.

We hope you find our new initiative valuable. Please share this resource with colleagues and students, and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have particular requests or ideas as to how we can further support the next generation of historians.
