  Education Pack

  The Equiano Education Pack

The Equiano Education Pack for History and Citizenship contains eight lessons following the chronology of Equiano's extraordinary life. The pack can be taught as a complete scheme of work, although each lesson can also stand alone in its own right. The full-colour pack comes with an A2 poster and a CD-ROM containing supplementary material.
The Equiano Education Pack is especially significant in light of recently announced changes to the KS3 History curriculum which recommend that the history and impact of the slave trade should be taught with specific reference to Olaudah Equiano. These changes will take effect from September 2008
