Level 1 History

L1HIS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Williams

History is the study of a past notable for its important, unusual or interesting events that will or can shape the course of the future. Students also have the opportunity to mix with students from all over New Zealand to Wellington for MUNA (Model United Nations Assembly) in the middle of the year.

What will I learn and how will I learn?
This course focuses on developing the student's research and interpretive skills. This then enables them to develop the ability to examine and argue from an historian’s point of view. It teaches most useful skills for use at university and in other school subjects.  The course uses a topic approach. Students will learn how to write confidently in a range of styles to express their ideas, how to explore and articulate their ideas both in written and verbal work, how to closely read, analyse and interpret cartoons, sketches, pictures, and texts, and how to use processes and structures to understand and respond to surface level and deeper ideas within texts. Opportunities for travel to history competitions, museums, and places of historical significance may be available.

Conditions of Assessment
Two internals are "open" assessments.  The third has some degree of in-class compulsory work as a requirement.

Submitting Internal Assessment
Achievement Standard 91001 - in a folder; Achievement Standards 91002 and 91004 - electronically.

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
