Level 1 History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Cullen-Wright

The course is designed for students wanting to go to university and will be useful in whichever subjects at university students may be interested in. It develops students’ skills in interpreting a variety of sources and literacy skills such as report and essay writing, which are key components of any tertiary course. You will learn how to undertake a research investigation, communicate information in a variety of ways and the causes and consequences of events. You will also learn how to use a wide range of sources and how to view an event from different perspectives.
These skills can be used in other subjects as well and are therefore extremely useful. The topics studied look at some of the major events of the 20th century. They include New Zealand identity, New Zealand in the 20th century, and research assignments on a battle from World War Two and the 1981 Springbok Tour.
This subject is useful for boys looking to go to university in any capacity and those with career interests in education, policing, advertising marketing, publicity, libraries/archive, publishing, law, journalism, broadcasting and all areas of research.
