History L1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: T. Halford

Students study a range of important historical events and movements in Level 1 History, both individually and as a class. Class based investigations include: analysing differing perspectives of the American Civil Rights Movement, the lasting significance of the Holocaust on the world, the impact of major disasters on New Zealand society plus many other case studies. Students choose their own individual historical event to research, which gives them a chance to explore different areas of history that interest them.

Level 1 History is an ideal subject for anyone who enjoys learning about the world and the people in it. History is dynamic and exciting. It can spark students’ curiosity and imagination in the world around them and make them more aware of how society has been shaped by events of history. This awareness can ensure students go on to improve their future by understanding the past. 

Students learn to perfect the essential skills of critical thinking, essay writing, source analysis, research expertise, historiography, referencing methods, plus many other valuable skills throughout the course. This scaffolds students appropriately into Level 2 History or any other Social Science subject.

This course can lead to: Level 2 and 3 History. Careers in government, teaching, law, research, marketing, diplomacy and any tertiary degree.
