History Level 1
Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Peterson
This course builds on skills learned in Social Studies as well as introduces students to key historical concepts as a basis for ongoing history study. The course involves the study of various events and turning points from the 20th Century.
From 2023 onwards we will restructure our History Curriculum into year-long programmes. We will look into topics such as the Rise of Hitler, and/or the Black Civil Rights movement. Within these two topics, we will look at how these major movements/events influenced people and societies around the globe and also how they impacted groups here in New Zealand. The internal assessments of this course will focus on how these events changed and influenced our New Zealand society in a variety of contexts.
The course offers both internal and externally assessed standards with a focus on research, essay writing and source interpretation.
Students in 2021 visited the Auckland Museum and the Devonport Naval Museum along with the gun emplacements and tunnels around North Head. In 2022, students visited the Auckland War Memorial museum.
