I am teacher of Sociology and Psychology. I studied Sociology at The University of Birmingham. I trained as a teacher at UCL’s Institute of Education. I founded an online platform called Black Teachers Connect (@blackteachersconnect on Instagram) in 2018 – connecting educators worldwide. I have a passion for teaching and I am particularly interested in areas of assessment.
With another week of lockdown continuing, many of us will continue teaching our students online. Engagement through remote learning can vary, it can be especially difficult if you are not teaching a core subject like English, Maths or Science. If you are like me, I have been struggling to keep some of my sociology and psychology students engaged outside of the classroom. It has required me to think outside the box and put my creative hat on when thinking about activities I can set my students to keep them hooked on social sciences!
