A Welcome from the Founder
Welcome to ‘Stories to be tolled!’ – a multi-media platform helping children and young teenagers learn and understand more about the British Empire and Britain’s colonial past.
There is no doubt that the British Empire is a major part of world history and helps us understand political, social and economic issues in the modern world. This platform aims to support children’s learning of History in the Primary and Secondary Curriculum. How long did the British Empire last? When did the British Empire end? What was the impact of colonisation in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean? Which countries became British colonies? What is decolonisation?
Take a tour of the website and dive in to the Stories, History Podcast series (with a new episode out every 2 weeks), Mini Documentaries and Learning Journeys to guide you in your learning about the British Empire and to support you in answering these questions and finding out more.
At ‘Stories to be tolled’ we love to promote a global approach to learning history in a way that is thought provoking, imaginative and engaging. I encourage you to reflect on your own assumptions about how and what you’ve learnt about the past that has been portrayed as ‘fact’ and to use historical enquiry to explore a range of sources to build your perspective.
This learning platform is an expression of my own learning about the British Empire and the passion that I have for life long education, which I want to inspire in everyone who visits us.
Make yourself at home… I hope that this platform brings you as much enjoyment as I have experienced in creating it.
With love and stay blessed,
Tracy D Williams
When learning about the past we recognise that what is often presented or emphasized, as 'fact' needs to be challenged and balanced from different perspectives.
Our multi-media learning platform of stories, podcasts, min-documentaries, learning journeys and artwork aims to encourage our followers to explore perspectives in history through its many global contexts. Contexts as parallels of time, people, events and places and not view history simply as a linear concept.
For learners and lovers of history from 9 years and older we want this platform to be a guide or useful resource as part of the standard history curriculum in schools as well as for personal interests. However, most of all we want to deliver the topic of the British Empire and Britain's colonial past through formats that are imaginative, understandable, thought provoking and engaging.
