Level 2 History

L2HIS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Williams

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.
