 Bexley: The Slavery Connection

These Teachers’ Resource Notes have been developed by the Hall Place & Gardens Education Team. The notes are in two parts; a history of Bexley’s connections with the Transatlantic Slave Trade and a set of teaching activities that uses images and resources from the Bexley Museum Collection and the Bexley Local Studies and Archives Centre. As all the activities are image based they can be used with a wide range of age groups and abilities.

The Transatlantic Slave Trade can be an intimidating subject to teach. Where do you start? This is where the Teachers’ Resource Notes play a large part as it highlights the local, familiar and relevant in order to discuss a huge international subject. These very visual resource notes give a grounded outline of the basic concepts and history of the Transatlantic Slave Trade as we know it from surviving evidence. This basic knowledge can be used to discuss the bigger picture and global aspects of the trade before returning to the local connections again. There is no denying that the subject of the Transatlantic Slave Trade can be controversial and emotional to many people. Discussing a vast international and culturally sensitive subject can make people feel uncomfortable, and this pack will assist you, as a teacher, to remain neutral.

Why not use the pack together with our handling loans box? This is packed with handling objects related to the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Click here to find out more about our Loans Box Service.
