From NEU eBulletin

Teaching the Civil Rights Movement Seminar

24-26 July  9.00-17.00
Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ

How do individuals and groups in a democracy organise to correct injustice? Join Facing History and Ourselves for a two-and-a-half-day seminar that will use the desegregation of Central High School in 1957 as a case study to explore the US Civil Rights Movement, positioning members to help their students understand how change happens in a democratic society. This seminar explores the teaching of US civil rights and race relations in Key Stage 4, highlighting Choices in Little Rock – the desegregation of Central High School in 1957, a defining moment in the American civil rights movement.

NEU – NUT Section HQ, Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London, WC1H 9BD

The 2018 Send My Friend to School Campaign, of which the NEU is a key supporter, focuses on making schools safe across the globe by asking the UK Government to implement the Safe Schools Declaration. This event will be an opportunity for audience members to learn the importance of the Declaration from Professor Steven Haines, the author of the International Guidelines for Protecting Schools from Military Use during Armed Conflict – a key tenet of the Declaration. Participants will also hear more about the Send My Friend to School Campaign from two Campaign Champions, including how they can get involved. Please register for this free event here.

Pride Events – national and local

Our presence at the growing number of local Pride events up and down the country reflects the central importance of equalities to our Union. In accordance with the practice adopted in 2015, we will again be centrally funding the pride events in Brighton, Manchester, London and Newcastle. Local officers can order ‘Pride crates’ for events in their areas which will contain pride liveried flags, whistles, garlands and LGBT+ and trans leaflets.

In order to keep within the budget constraints, we will be charging a nominal fee of £30.00 so that local associations and divisions will benefit from the economies of scale available to the national Union for bulk orders of the materials.

To order your pride crate, please email rachel.baxter@neu.org.uk with the date of your event, delivery address and a contact number.

Join us at our free BFI Southbank Study Day to explore the themes of ‘home’, ‘being an outsider’ and ‘being a refugee’

Tue 05 Jun 2018 | BFI Southbank 10:30-12:45

What does ‘home’ mean to you? Have you ever felt like an outsider? What does it mean to be welcomed?

We would like to invite you and your pupils to join us on Tuesday 05 June from 10:30-12:45 at BFI Southbank for our Study Day: My Home. In this interactive event we will explore what it means to be an outsider, how we define ‘home’ and how it feels to be a refugee.

Pupils will watch an extract from Paddington and then two short films: Jemima and Johnny and Palle Alone in the World. These films will challenge their perception of what it means to find your place in the world. We will follow each film with a wider discussion around the themes of ‘finding your place in the world’ and ‘being an outsider’.

Tickets for this event are free but booking is essential as space is limited. We are especially keen to welcome schools that have significant numbers of children recently arrived from outside the UK.

To book, please contact us on 020 7815 1329.
