13 History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Welsh

This course offers students an opportunity to study the untold story of history. Examples include the changing roles and rights of women in different times and places in History, such as the Tudor/Stuart period, witchcraft, NZ colonial women and women in the USA. We will also focus on the untold stories of 19th century NZ history. This final year of History is a chance to hone vital skills in preparation for further study at tertiary level, including:

  1. an emphasis on developing clear, logical and structured essay writing
  2. the interpretation and critical analysis of a wide range of historical sources
  3. the appreciation of differing historical perspectives and the contestability of history
  4. the ability to present a substantiated argument
  5. the skills of historical research – asking perceptive questions, planning, selecting and evaluating the quality of evidence and the inquiry process as a whole.

Future Areas of interest and study: Law, journalism, business, media or any other job requiring skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication and effective presentation.
