Teacher fellows

Shellie Webster

Hello, I’m Shellie Webster. I have been working as a fellow with Parallel Histories for several years and will continue to do so for many more to come! I have been involved in implementing their curriculum on the Israel Palestine conflict into our Year 9 curriculum, assessed via their debating program. This has been a fantastic opportunity to embed oracy within our lessons, and our students have thrived and been inspired by the content of the lessons. Our school has also been involved in online digital debating with schools around the world and many of our sixth formers have used materials from Parallel Histories for their course work. We have continued to enjoy the style of assessment Parallel Histories have supported us with and have adapted other KS3 topics to follow the same, dual narrative approach with debates as assessments. I have also been pleased to have been asked to join the board of trustees and am excited by the many amazing upcoming opportunities that Parallel Histories are working on, and our school has been asked to pilot some very exciting new materials! As a small dual faith school on the Isle of Wight, Parallel Histories continues to allow us to immerse our students in a diverse curriculum which exposes them to global histories.
