Year 11 History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Jean-Paul Eason

History is a subject that offers an understanding of human activities in the past in the context of change through time. It enables students to understand politics, their heritage and that of their community, society and nation, as well the examination of other society’s heritage. Students are encouraged to read and analyse a range of source materials carefully with discrimination and insight. They learn to research and write effectively for a range of purposes, expressing their perspectives in a clear, well-organised and convincing manner. Students taking History will learn a number of important and highly transferable social skills including how to develop clear critical thinking, diplomacy, research, communication, reasoned debate, observation, recognizing differing points of view, and detect bias and propaganda.
